Round 6: Ravens Draft CB Maurice Canady At 209


The Ravens have finalized their 2016 draft class.

Baltimore made its final pick, selecting Virginia cornerback Maurice Canady in the sixth round with the No. 209 overall pick.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound cornerback is the second corner the Ravens took in their 11-man draft class, as they also selected Temple's Tavon Young in the fourth round.

While Young is 5-foot-9, Canady has prototypical size for what the Ravens want in their outside cornerbacks and can also contribute on special teams as a return man. Canady returned punts throughout his career, and he took one back for a 74-yard touchdown last season.

The Ravens got a good luck at Canady during the week of practice at the Senior Bowl in January, and they have a history of selecting players who they scout during that time in Mobile, Ala.

"He's a guy that really showed up at the Senior Bowl," General Manager Ozzie Newsome said.

Canady did not have any interceptions last year, but he did come up with three picks in his junior year and five over his college career. He played in 11 games as a true freshman and made two interceptions.

He will compete for a spot on the roster along with some of the Ravens' other young players in the secondary like Jermaine Whitehead, Jumal Rolle and Julian Wilson.
