The Baltimore Ravens have announced that they have signed their first round pick C.J. Mosley. Mosley was at rookie mini camp and looks to be a leader of the Ravens defense right away.
The Ravens have been quick to sign their draft picks this year and it looks like their will not be any hold outs.
The Ravens now have only one more pick to sign and that is their third round pick Terrence Brooks. Brooks recently had a baby which may be delaying his contract signing.
