Wilson was one of the Ravens' most heavily recruited undrafted rookies.

He signed with the Ravens over competing offers from the Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons and Cleveland Browns. The deal with the Ravens includess a $9,000 signing bonus, according to a source.

Wilson worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and Falcons prior to the draft.

He met with the Ravens at the NFL scouting combine, discussing defensive schemes with secondary coach Chris Hewitt.

Wilson has prototypical size and speed for an NFL defensive back.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound cornerback has 32 3/8-inch arms, 9 1/4-inch hands and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout. He bench-pressed 225 pounds 15 times.

An Academic All-Big 12 selection, Wilson started nine games at cornerback last season for the Sooners before missing the Russell Athletic Bowl against Clemson because of an injury. He finished the season with 39 tackles and one interception.

Wilson was a four-star recruit growing up in Oklahoma City, who ran the 100 meters in 10.2 seconds.

On top of that, clearing up a rumor that quickly spread via social media, Ravens Pro Bowl outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil wasn't injured during cornerback Lardarius Webb's charity softball game.

Dumervil wasn't even playing in or attending the game, but a team employee wearing a No. 58 Dumervil jersey was carted off the field with a leg injury. That quickly led to speculation on Twitter that it was Dumervil who got hurt, but that wasn't the case at all.
