Reports: Ravens Adding Undrafted Free Agents


The Ravens selected 11 players in the NFL Draft over the weekend.

But soon after the draft concluded, the scouts and coaches got right back to work on finalizing the 90-man roster. The second phase of draft weekend is signing all the of the undrafted free agents, and the Ravens have a strong history of finding gems during this process.

Here's an updated list of who the Ravens have reportedly added as undrafted prospects:

(Note: The Ravens have not confirmed these signings and undrafted free agent additions can often change before the team takes the field for rookie minicamp next weekend.)

OLB Victor Ochi, Stony Brook
6-1, 246 pounds; 16.5 tackles for loss, 13 sacks

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reported the Ravens signed Ochi, who is known as a hard-nosed player who led the FCS with 13 sacks last year. He doesn't have the ideal size that NFL teams want in their edge rushers, but plenty of undersized players have developed into quality pass rushers at the professional level. NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah compared Ochi to veteran pass rusher Dwight Freeney, saying "[Ochi] doesn't have that same juice, but, man, he knows how to rush the passer." ESPN's draft guru Mel Kiper said he had a third-round grade on Ochi.

ILB Cavellis Luckett, Middle Tennessee State
5-11, 238 pounds

The Ravens were in the market for an inside linebacker after not using one of their draft picks on one, and Zrebiec reported that they signed Luckett. He's a small school prospect who will have to make a big leap to compete with Arthur Brown, Albert McClellan and Zach Orr.

P/K Will Lutz, Georgia State
6-0, 190 pounds

The Ravens don't necessarily have a need at punter or kicker with Justin Tucker and Sam Koch on the roster, but Lutz will give them an additional leg during offseason workouts. His agent tweeted that Lutz would join the Ravens.

OL Anthony Fabiano, Harvard
6-5, 290 pounds

The Ivy League guard tweeted that he's headed to Baltimore and "pumped to work with one of the best in the business in Coach Castillo." Offensive Line Coach Juan Castillo has a strong history of developing undrafted prospects, which always makes the undrafted linemen intriguing players to watch.

C Matt Skura, Duke
6-3, 205 pounds

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported that Skura is on his way to join the Ravens. Skura was a four-year starter for Duke and was a first-team All-ACC selection last year. He is an interior offensive lineman who could compete to provide depth behind starter Jeremy Zuttah.

OG Jarrell Broxton, Baylor
6-4, 327 pounds

Wilson reported that Broxton's deal with the Ravens includes a $10,000 signing bonus, which is a significant number for an undrafted prospect. The size of an undrafted rookie's signing bonus is sometimes an indication of which players have the best shot at ending up on the roster. Broxton was a two-year starter at right guard for Baylor and earned first-team All-Big 12 honors last season.

DT OJ Mau, Gardner Webb
6-1, 310 pounds; 60 tackles, 4.5 sacks

Mau is another small-school prospect headed to Baltimore trying to make the team as an undrafted rookie, according to Zrebiec. He was a highly productive player at Gardner Webb, where he started for the last three seasons.

OT Stephane Nembot, Colorado
6-6, 322 pounds

The Ravens are bringing in Nembot, Zrebiec reported, and he is a raw prospect who didn't start playing football until his junior year of high school. He initially started playing on the defensive side of the ball but moved to offensive line his freshman season. Nembot was primarily a right tackle at Colorado, starting 36 games there over the course of his career. He was born in Cameroon and speaks English, French, Spanish and 11 African dialects.

DE/OLB Maro Ojemudia, Michigan
6-2, 255 pounds

The Ravens had added another Michigan defender, according to Zrebiec. After drafting Michigan defensive tackle Willie Henry Saturday, the Ravens picked up Ojemudia as a defensive end/outside linebacker. Ojemudia is coming off a torn Achilles that he suffered last October. At the time of the injury, Ojemudia was the team's third leading tackler and also had two sacks.

DT Michael Pierce, Samford
6-0, 309 pounds

The Ravens will get another big run stuffer in Pierce, according to Zrebiec. He had 35 tackles and a sack last season.  Pierce started his career at Tulane before transferring to Samford. He might be best known for his work in the weight room, where he set the school record by squatting 725 pounds.
