When Kelechi Osemele signed a five-year, $58.5 million free-agent deal with the Oakland Raiders last March, the Ravens lost an ascending Pro Bowl performer and one of their top offensive linemen.
They learned Friday that what they gained from Osemele’s departure was an extra third-round pick in April’s draft. The NFL awarded compensatory draft selections Friday and the Ravens received the 99th overall selection in the draft due to their free-agent losses last offseason.
The Ravens now have eight total picks in the draft, one each in rounds one, two, four, five, six and seven and two in the third. The first day of the draft is on April 27.
