NFL Draft Day 3 roundup: Ravens take BYU TE, Utah WR, Syracuse DT, Morehouse OT

April 24, 2010|By Baltimore Sun staff

With their final pick (presumably) in the NFL Draft today, the Ravens selected Ramone Harewood, an offensive tackle from Morehouse College. He was taken in the sixth round, 194th overall.

He's huge, 6-foot-6 and weighing as much as 360 pounds, and visited the Ravens for a private workout before the draft.

Harewood started getting attention from teams before the draft and was thought by many to be a late, under-the-radar, pick.

The Ravens don't have any picks remaining as of now, but could jump back in with a trade.

With their two back-to-back picks in the fifth round, the Ravens drafted Utah wide receiver David Reed (156th) and Syracuse defensive tackle Arthur Jones (157th).

Reed, 6-foot and 190 pounds, had 81 receptions for 1,188 yards and five touchdowns in his senior year. He earned first-team all-Mountain West honors.

Jones, 6-3 and 270 pounds, had 8 sacks as a sophomore and 6.5 sacks as a junior. He injured his knee during his senior year.

With their first pick of Day 3 of the NFL Draft this morning, the Ravens selected Dennis Pitta, tight end from BYU, the 114th pick overall.

He joins tight end Ed Dickson of Oregon, who was drafted by the Ravens in the third round on Friday.

This gives the Ravens some depth behind starting tight end Todd Heap, but ignores other need areas like cornerback.

Pitta, who is 6-foot-4 and weighs 245 pounds, had a very productive career at pass-happy BYU, including 62 catches last season. His junior year he had 83 receptions for 1,083 yards and six touchdowns

A former walk-on for the Cougars, he has served a two-year Mormon mission to the Dominican Republic.

He was a finalist this past season for the Mackey Award as college football's top tight end.
