The Ravens are expected to give up a fifth-round pick in this year's draft to the Seattle Seahawks to complete last season's trade for cornerback Josh Wilson.

Neither the Ravens nor the NFL would confirm it will be a fifth-round pick. But it was reported on Aug. 31 that the Ravens agreed to send a conditional fifth-round pick to the Seahawks. It could have improved to a fourth-round selection if Wilson started a particular number of games.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome confirmed that Wilson didn't meet "the requirements for the condition to kick in."Wilson, who started nine games for the Ravens, is expected to become an unrestricted free agent when the new collective bargaining agreement is reached. In his first season with the Ravens, the former Maryland star showed great ball skills (15 passes broken up) and returned an interception for the game-winning touchdown at Houston.

The Ravens also netted an additional sixth-round pick in the 2011 draft as the result of two trades from last season. The team traded wide receiver Mark Clayton and a seventh-round pick to the St. Louis Rams for their sixth-round selection. The Ravens then picked up a seventh-rounder from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for linebacker Antwan Barnes.
