After making seven draft picks over the weekend, the Ravens went right to work recruiting undrafted free agents to Baltimore.

The Ravens have a long history of finding diamonds in the rough during the undrafted free agent process, and reports have started to trickle in about who will be part of this year's free-agent crop.

Here are the players the Ravens have reportedly signed (these reports have not been confirmed by the team, but a number of schools and players have announced them):

QB Zach Terrell, Western MichiganTerrell is familiar with working alongside a Flacco, as his backup in college was Joe Flacco's younger brother, Tom. ESPN's Adam Caplan reported that Terrell had signed with the Ravens. Terrell threw for 3,533 yards and 33 touchdowns last year, and he had 96 touchdown passes over his four-year career.

WR/RS Tim White, Arizona StateThe Ravens didn't draft a receiver, but they found a handful of them in free agency. The Arizona Republic's Jeff Metcalfe reported that White will join the Ravens. White is a speedy slot receiver who also brings value in the return game. The Ravens are in the market for a returner, so White will get his chances in that area.

WR Tim Patrick, UtahThe Ravens added the big target from Utah according to The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec. Patrick is 6-foot-5, 210 pounds, and he had 711 receiving yards and five touchdowns last season. 

WR Quincy Adeboyejo, Ole MissBaltimore also found a big receiver in Adeboyejo, according to Zrebiec. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound receiver caught 35 passes for 456 yards and a touchdown last season.

WR C.J. Board, Tennessee ChattanoogaBoard comes to Baltimore after a highly productive college career, according to a release from the school. He was a four-year starter and had 146 catches for 2,032 yards and 10 scores during his time in college.

LB Bam Bradley, PittThe Ravens have had more success finding undrafted inside linebackers than any other position. Players like Zachary Orr, Albert McClellan, Jameel McClain and Bart Scott all made the Ravens as undrafted free agents, and Bradly tweeted* *that he is headed to Baltimore.

DE Omarius Bryant, Western KentuckyThe Ravens have added a massive defender in Bryant, per a tweet from the school. He is 6-3, 315 pounds, so he won't have any issue making the leap to the NFL from a physical standpoint.

RB Taquan Mizzell, VirginiaThe Ravens didn't take any running backs in this year's draft, but they added a highly productive ball carrier from Virginia, the football team announced. He ran for 2,068 yards and 19 touchdowns during his four college seasons.

FB Ricky Ortiz, Oregon StateThe Ravens lost a versatile fullback in free agency, but they added another one in Ortiz, according to the Sun. He played fullback, H-back and even linebacker in college, and he'll get his chances in Baltimore as the Ravens don't currently have another fullback on the roster.

OL Andrew Wylie, Eastern MichiganEastern Michigan's athletics department tweeted that the Ravens had signed Wylie to a free-agent deal. Wylie is 6-foot-6, 311 pounds, and he started games at left tackle, left guard and right tackle during his college career.

K Bobby Puyol, ConnecticutConnecticut's football team tweeted that Puyol would be joining the Ravens. Even though the Ravens already have one of the league's best kickers in Justin Tucker, they typically bring in another kicker during offseason practices. Those kickers can sometimes catch on with other teams, as the Saints signed kicker Wil Lutz last year after his preseason work with the Ravens.

P Kenny Allen, MichiganMichigan's Kenny Allen tweeted that he would be joining the Ravens. Allen will work under veteran punter Sam Koch, and he'll be in a similar situation to Puyol.
