NFL draft results continue to pour as the 2017 NFL draft comes to an end for the Baltimore Ravens. We now deliver instant reaction from the Ravens’ drafting Tyus Bowser, Chris Wormley, Tim Williams and Nico Siragusa.
The 2017 NFL draft is closing in the city of brotherly love as the Baltimore Ravens applied their six picks in Day 2 and 3 to strengthen their defense and the offensive line after drafting Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey with the No. 16 pick on Day 1.
Friday night, the Ravens selected Houston linebacker Tyus Bowser with their second round pick. According to Mel Kiper Jr. from ESPN, Bowser is an undervalued pass-rusher with top-tier closing speed, making him a perfect fit in the Ravens’ 3-4 defensive scheme.
The Ravens remained devoted to improving their defense in round three, acquiring an additional third round pick from the Philadelphia Eagles to select the robust Michigan defensive tackle, Chris Wormley.
