July 25, 2005|By Baltimoresun.com Staff

The Ravens announced today that they have signed two of their 2005 draft picks, FB Justin Green and QB Derek Anderson, to three-year contracts.

Green, the Ravens' fifth-round draft choice, rushed for 1,784 yards and 22 touchdowns on 412 attempts in two years at the Montana. He was voted the Big Sky Conference Newcomer of the Year by league coaches in 2003, when he finished third in the conference in rushing with 1,146 yards (88.2 yards per game) and led the conference with 14 total touchdowns.

Anderson, the Ravens' sixth-round selection, is the only quarterback in Oregon State history to have led his team to three Bowl games. As a junior in 2003, he became only the second player in Pac-10 history to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a single season with 4,058 yards (Washington's Cody Pickett was the other with 4,458 yards in 2002). Anderson finished his career at Oregon State with 11,249 passing yards, 79 TDs and a 122.7 QB rating.

The Ravens begin their training camp next Monday at McDaniel College in Westminster.
