The Ravens continued to get draft picks signed ahead of Friday’s start to a three-day rookie mini-camp as they not only agreed to terms today on a four-year deal with fourth-round pick Gino Gradkowski, a guard/center out from the University of Delaware, they also reached an agreement with seventh-round pick DeAngelo Tyson, a defensive tackle out of Georgia.
Tyson, a 6-foot-2, 315-pound run stuffer, was selected with the Ravens’ final pick of the draft at No.236 overall. He started 23 games over the past two seasons at Georgia and had 79 career tackles and three sacks over 50 career games for the Bulldogs.
He’s expected to compete for a job in the Ravens’ defensive line rotation which got deeper in recent days with the addition of veteran free agents Ryan McBean and Ma’ake Kemoeatu.
Tyson will sign his contract when he reports to mini-camp.
His agreement leaves the Ravens with just three of their eight draft picks to sign. The picks that haven’t agreed to a deal are second-round pick Courtney Upshaw, a linebacker out of Alabama; third-round pick Bernard Pierce, a running back from Temple; and sixth-round pick Tommy Streeter, a wide receiver out of Miami.
