Bryan Harvey was living every Little League dad's dream on Tuesday afternoon, watching from the back of the room while his son - the Orioles' first pick in the June draft - was introduced to the media at Oriole Park. Hunter Harvey, the 22nd overall selection, and Josh Hart, the Orioles' supplemental first-round choice, took part in the brief news conference to announce their first professional contracts, both looking every bit like the fresh-faced high school players they were just a few weeks ago…both accompanied by families bursting with pride.

BOWIE -- As a free-agent outfielder playing in Venezuela last winter, Adam Loewen hoped to show enough to earn a chance in spring training. And then he realized that his best shot to get back to the major leagues might be what originally got him there: his prized left arm. Now with the Reading Fightin Phils, the Philadelphia Phillies' Double-A affiliate, Loewen came with his team to Double-A Bowie this week. "It's like I'm starting over every five years at something different," Loewen said Tuesday.

Despite re-signing left tackle Eugene Monroe, tight end Dennis Pitta and wide receiver Jacoby Jones, adding veteran playmaker Steve Smith and hiring a new coordinator, the Ravens still have work left to do this offseason to improve an offense that plummeted to 29th in total yards and 25th in scoring in 2013. The only offensive position where they don't need to add talent and depth appears to be quarterback. So might the Ravens use their top pick on offense? It's been a quite a while since they have done that.

The Ravens have signed first-round pick C.J. Mosley , finalizing a four-year deal with the inside linebacker worth $8.787 million on Tuesday. The deal includes a standard fifth-year option and a $4.711 million signing bonus. With Mosley's deal done, that leaves third-round pick Terrence Brooks, a safety out of Florida State, as the team's only unsigned draft pick. Mosley -- one of the top inside linebackers in the draft and aplayer the Ravens were pleased to see still on the board at No. 17 -- is expected to challenge second-year player Arthur Brown for the starting weak-side linebacker role alongside Daryl Smith.

The Ravens are running out of excuses and cornerback Jimmy Smith is running out of time. We just keep waiting and waiting and waiting ... And so far, there has been very little production, at least for what you'd expect out of a first-round pick. When the Ravens selected Smith with the No. 27 overall pick out of Colorado in 2011, there was speculation that he could be another shutdown cornerback like Chris McAlister because he had size, speed and range. Since then, he has only proven that he can be a nickel back in the NFL. With Lardarius Webb out of the lineup Thursday night because of knee injury, Smith got a chance to start for a second straight preseason game, and again he didn't show much.

When the Ravens swung a draft-day deal last year with Atlanta, in which they gave up their second-round pick in 1999 for the Falcons' first-round pick in 2000, the Ravens did not figure on getting one of the top five choices in this year's draft. The Ravens have the No. 5 pick, since the Falcons surprisingly spent most of the 1999 season as one of the league's worst teams. The Ravens could have made out even better. If San Francisco would have beaten Atlanta to end the regular season last night, the Ravens would have received the No. 3 overall pick.

The Ravens appear headed for another absence by a first-round pick. Talks between the Ravens and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata have reached a stalemate, a league source said yesterday. The Ravens, who report to training camp today, haven't signed a first-round pick on time since 2001. Negotiations were expected to pick up this week after the Cleveland Browns signed linebacker Kamerion Wimbley, who was selected one pick after Ngata (the 12th overall selection). But Wimbley's deal might have hurt talks.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors react to the Ravens' first-round selection of Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley with the No. 17 overall pick on Thursday night. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: The Ravens always say that they draft the best-player-available and not for their biggest need. That was evident again tonight as the Ravens bypassed the top two safeties in the draft - Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Calvin Pryor - to select C.J. Mosley. The Ravens really needed more depth at middle linebacker but Mosley is not a depth pick.

With every new draft class, the Orioles' 2009 first-round pick, Matt Hobgood, moves further from the center of attention. Rotator cuff surgery in 2011 punctuated two seasons of less-than-impressive results, but after returning last year, the 6-foot-4, 245-pound right-hander is establishing himself as a bullpen force for the Class-A Frederick Keys. Hobgood has allowed three earned runs in 13 2/3 innings over six appearances, with a 1.98 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. Hobgood hasn't pitched since April 24, when he allowed three runs - one earned - and four hits in the Keys' walk-off win over Myrtle Beach.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Even though the Orioles handed out a historic four-year deal to right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, the club believes it has gotten a deal given the money being handed out on the free-agent market. As much as fans in Baltimore have railed that they'll never see the Orioles open their wallets for a high-profile free agent, today is their day. Jimenez's deal is worth roughly $50 million. He is the fifth free-agent starter to receive a deal of four years or more, but out of the five, his $12.5 million average annual salary is comparable to the others.

The NFL scouting combine is in a couple of weeks, unofficially starting the league's silly season. But even though the NFL draft is still three long months away, draft analysts continue to update their mock drafts.   The last time I rounded up a few notable mock drafts, back in early January , many draft analysts linked the Ravens to Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, whose size and strong hands could make him a fit. This time around, I read several mock drafts that had the Ravens taking Evans with their first-round pick.

The Orioles are in continuing negotiations with free-agent right-hander Bronson Arroyo, according to an industry source. They are not the only serious suitor, however, as the sweepstakes for Arroyo appears to be nearing a close. The 36-year-old, who was 14-12 with a 3.79 ERA in 32 starts with the Cincinnati Reds last year, is one of several high-profile starters still available on the market. It was believed that Arroyo, who turns 37 later this month, was seeking a three-year deal, but he seems to have softened that stance.

It was not anything Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith had heard or read. He mostly avoids watching the NFL on television and he ignores football commentary on the radio and Internet. It was just something he could sense, not just from fans and reporters but from the people he was around every day. "Even your teammates, they may not say anything to you but I kind of felt like they were thinking, 'You're a first-round draft pick. You should be out here doing this. You should be out here killing it,' " Smith said.
