Ravens wrap up draft class, agree to terms with ILB Patrick Queen and WR Devin Duvernay

The Ravens have agreed to terms with first-round pick Patrick Queen and third-round pick Devin Duvernay, the team announced Wednesday.

The pending deals, the Ravens’ last two unsigned rookie contracts, are expected to be finalized before training camp starts.

Queen, who starred at inside linebacker for LSU during the Tigers’ national championship run last season, was taken No. 28 overall in April. As a first-round pick, he’ll receive a four-year contract with a fifth-year team option.

“He’s an explosive player sideline to sideline,” Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said in April of Queen, the first LSU player the Ravens have drafted. “He is equally adept in coverage and also against the run. He’s a good blitzer. He’s a guy that plays like a Raven. He’s a guy that when you watch the tape you notice him. He’s a great fit for our defense. I think he’s a great fit for Baltimore, and we’re very excited about him.”

Duvernay, a star wide receiver for Texas, was named first-team All-Big 12 Conference last season after finishing with 106 receptions for 1,386 yards and nine touchdowns in 13 starts.

“The No. 1 priority for us was to get a fast guy” at receiver, coach John Harbaugh said in April. “We just wanted to get another fast guy in the offense, a speed guy. One, you got a guy that caught 106 balls. In his career, he had over 160 catches with one drop. That’s what we had in our count. I didn’t see a drop on tape this last year. [He had] numerous catches over the top of guys. He’s only 5-[foot]-10, [but he’s a] strong, tough, real competitive guy. He has a little chip on his shoulder.”

The Ravens earlier signed Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins, Texas A&M defensive tackle Justin Madubuike, Ohio State inside linebacker Malik Harrison, Mississippi State offensive lineman Tyre Phillips, Michigan offensive lineman Ben Bredeson, Texas Tech defensive tackle Broderick Washington, Southern Methodist wide receiver James Proche and Iowa safety Geno Stone.
