We're officially two weeks away from the 2019 NFL Draft.
Here's the latest Baltimore Ravens news.
1. The Ravens hosted free agent wide receiver, and most recently a member of the AAF's Orlando Apollos, Chris Thompson Wednesday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Thompson also spent time with the Houston Texans in 2017, catching five passes for 84 yards before being released prior to the 2018 season. With the Apollos, the receiver caught eight passes for 123 yards in eight games.
2. ESPN's Todd McShay put together a best case scenario three-round mock draft, and has the Ravens selecting Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell at No. 22.
“Clelin is just a really good football player,” McShay said. “You look at his [Combine testing] numbers and he doesn’t have the elite explosiveness, but he got better every year, his production was outstanding. Did he benefit from having two other potential first-rounders on the defensive line at Clemson? Sure. But he still had to produce and he did, week in and week out.”
While at Clemson, Ferrell had 27 sacks in three seasons in addition to 50.5 tackles for loss. McShay's third-round picks for the Ravens - Baltimore gave up their second-round pick for Lamar Jackson last year - are Texas A&M running back Trayveon Williams and New Mexico State running back Terrill Hanks.
3. Even though safety Earl Thomas is just beginning his chapter with the Ravens, he plans on one day retiring as a Seattle Seahawk.
"I envision myself retiring as a Seahawk," Thomas told The Rich Eisen Show Wednesday . "I would never burn a bridge there. I still love my teammates. I definitely see myself signing maybe a one-day deal, and hopefully they'll hang my jersey in the rafters."
Thomas, who signed a four-year, $55 million deal with Baltimore back in March, told Eisen that he had committed to a one-year, $12 million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs before the Ravens offered him a better deal.
4. Running back Ty Montgomery is scheduled to visit the New York Jets Thursday. The unrestricted free agent was traded to the Ravens from the Green Bay Packers back in October. In six games with Baltimore, Montgomery rushed 15 times for 83 yards in addition to 10 receptions for 65 yards.
