The Ravens have signed third-round defensive tackle Brandon Williams to a four-year, $2.697 million contract.
Williams received a $515,000 signing bonus. His contract includes a first-year salary-cap figure of $533,750.
Williams is slated to compete for an immediate starting job at nose guard with Terrence Cody still recuperating from offseason hip surgery.
Ravens coaches and executives have praised Williams for his mobility, size and strength. The 6-foot-1, 335-pounder was a Division II All-American at Missouri Southern and excelled at the Senior Bowl all-star game.
With Williams signed, the Ravens have just one remaining unsigned draft pick: first-round safety Matt Elam.
