Maryland teen gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity from Ravens at NFL Draft

Maryland teen gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity from Ravens at NFL Draft

The first round of the NFL Draft gets underway on Thursday and the Ravens made sure a special fan will not only be there, but be a part of the process.

In 2015, T.J. Onwuanibe was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer and through Make-A-Wish he wanted the opportunity to announce a Ravens draft pick. 

Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced that dream would come true and not only would T.J. get to announce a draft pick, but the Ravens first round draft pick.

T.J. Onwuanibe was joined by the Ravens cheerleaders and mascot at McDonogh for the special reveal.

Here's the full version of the video coach John Harbaugh recorded.

Hollywood Brown tweets at Jalen Ramsey in support of Jaguars cornerback joining Ravens

Hollywood Brown tweets at Jalen Ramsey in support of Jaguars cornerback joining Ravens

Marquise Brown has made it clear what he thinks of Jalen Ramsey's reported trade request out of Jacksonville. 

On Tuesday morning, Brown tweeted at Ramsey in support of the All-Pro cornerback joining the Ravens.

Ramsey, a 2016 first-round in Jacksonville, quickly established himself as one of the best cornerbacks in the league and was named All-Pro in just his second season. 

Reportedly, the Jaguars are looking for at least one first round pick in return for Ramsey. And after the Steelers traded a first round pick for Minkah Fitzpatrick, there's good reason to think the Jaguars wouldn't settle for less than that. 

Things are ramping up so quickly, as he had an incident on the sideline last Sunday while the team was in Houston. Video caught Ramsey and Jaguars coach Doug Marrone exchanging words on the sideline, and both had to be separated. 

Whether or not the trade would fit for the Ravens and their organization remains to be seen, as does if the compensation required for Ramsey is worth it. 

On the Ravens side, the need is there. Slot cornerback Tavon Young is out for the season with a neck injury and Jimmy Smith is out for a few weeks with an MCL sprain.

Either way, there's already at least one Ravens player with bringing Ramsey along.

Ray Lewis shows off salsa moves on 'Dancing With The Stars' premiere

Ray Lewis started out his time on 'Dancing With The Stars' to a song that was popular right at the height of his career: Nelly's 'Hot In Herre'. 

The retired Ravens great is paired with Cheryl Burke this season and showed off his best salsa moves on Monday night's premiere. 

In a pre-show blog written on US Weekly, Burke wrote that Lewis (though at the time of her writing the pairs weren't publicly announced yet) was more worried than anything about letting her down in the dancing competition.

"He keeps saying, 'I’m not gonna let you down,'" she wrote. "So I think he’s more nervous of that. He’s still trying to find his way. It’s like trying to teach a baby to walk first before crawling. It’s not enough time. You have to totally be in tune with each other and that’s what we’re still figuring out. So it’s tough. He’s either gonna make me fly across the ballroom floor by accident or we’re gonna be good. It will be good regardless though!"

Lewis' entrance to the DWTS stage looked familiar to anyone who watched his career: 

And his reviews from the judges? Not bad: He received a 15 out of 30 and was told by one judge, Len, that he has "potential." 

The first elimination is next Monday.
