The Ravens waited until the seventh round to draft Elon wide receiver Aaron Mellette on Saturday evening. But the wait felt much, much longer to Mellette, who some analysts believed would come off the board earlier in the draft's final day. Soon after the Ravens called his name, though, Mellette was already thinking about what he will need to do to make the jump from the small-school Phoenix to the Super Bowl champion Ravens. “I've just got to come in and learn the playbook and figure out new ways to get open because what we did in college is more than likely not going to work in the NFL,” Mellette said Saturday evening on a conference call.

Free agent LaQuan Williams , a wide receiver out of Maryland who made the 2011 Ravens as an undrafted free agent and played parts of two seasons with the organization, is re-signing with the team. “Feels good to be back home Raven Nation,” Williams wrote on his Twitter account. The 25-year-old will agree to a one-year deal. Williams, who played his high school football at Poly, has been out of the NFL since last November and hasn't played in a regular-season game since the 2012 season.

Jacoby Jones' sprained right knee means the Ravens will probably need short-term assistance on offense and special teams. The Ravens, for a variety of reasons, have shown no interest in perusing the slim veteran free agent market that includes Brandon Lloyd , Braylon Edwards , Laurent Robinson , Austin Collie , Josh Cribbs and David Nelson . If Jones is sidelined against the Cleveland Browns or longer, the Ravens could...

For the second preseason game in a row, small-college receiver candidate Aaron Mellette pulled in a touchdown pass from backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor to help the Ravens recover from another sluggish performance by the first-team offense. Who knows just how much that will mean when the coaching staff begins seriously sorting out the receiving corps, but it certainly hasn't hurt Mellette's chances of sticking around for awhile. He has been one of the early bright spots in a receiver competition that hasn't featured a lot of impressive performances.

Growing up in the farming community of Fort Morgan, Colo., Ravens rookie offensive lineman Ryan Jensen would never have been mistaken for a future NFL draft pick. Although his older brother, Seth, had played defensive tackle at Nebraska, Jensen weighed just 210 pounds as a high school senior and was virtually ignored by major college recruiters. So Jensen accepted a scholarship offer to Division II Colorado State-Pueblo, where he bulked up to 317 pounds and emerged as an All-American.

When general manager Ozzie Newsome spoke to the media at last month's “State of the Ravens” news conference, he did everything but guarantee that the organization would add the type of pass catcher that it needs before the start of the 2014 season. “I think we've identified the type of player that we're looking for,” Newsome said. “That player will be available ... whether it's in free agency, whether he's a cap casualty, whether it's in the draft or whether it's through trade.

COLLEGE PARK - When Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith arrived at Maryland's Comcast Center on Saturday afternoon, he noticed a large group of fans standing outside in the rain waiting to enter. It was further affirmation of just how much his annual celebrity basketball game had grown. An announced 4,493 attended the “Battle of the Beltway” all-star game, which pitted Smith's Ravens team against a Washington Redskins squad led by linebacker Ryan Kerrigan. The Ravens won, 63-61, on Jacoby Jones' tip-in of a miss by San Francisco 49ers star Anquan Boldin with four seconds to play in overtime.  Proceeds of the game benefitted the Torrey Smith Foundation and Kerrigan's Blitz for the Better Foundation . “It's still kind of surreal, in a lot of ways,” said Smith.

The competition for the final couple of wide receiver spots was the most intriguing Ravens storyline heading into their final preseason game and nothing that happened during the team's 24-21 loss to the St. Louis Rams last night changed that perception. With the three roster locks at the position -- Torrey Smith , Jacoby Jones and Brandon Stokley -- being held out of the game by Ravens coach John Harbaugh , the opportunity shifted to Tandon Doss , Aaron Mellette and Marlon Brown -- and all three responded.
