"We're excited about him," said Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta. "He's a guy that we watched. I think [general manager Ozzie Newsome] is one of the first guys to watch him. We were in draft meetings, we took a break and he watched him, came back and said, 'You need to watch this guy.' I did and saw a big, fast, physical stallion. A younger player, he's going to get better. We're very excited about him. He complements our team extremely well and he's a great kid, as Ozzie alluded to. I think he makes us a better football team."
