The Ravens completed their 10-man draft process Saturday night, and quickly moved toward the next process of the NFL off-season and an area that they have had huge success in-the rookie free agent pool.
The team invited over 15 players to their off-season camps, highlighted by Maryland TE Matt Furstenburg, who had an impressive showing at the Combine.
Murphy Holloway, who was a member of the NCAA Tournament-bound Ole Miss basketball team, is trying to break onto an NFL roster as a tight end and will attempt to do so in Baltimore. Trying to replicate the success of Tony Gonzalez and Antonio Gates as converted basketball players, the 6’7” 240 lb Holloway averaged double-digit points for the Rebels this season.
Among the other invites included Army QB Trent Steelman, who will likely try to make it in the NFL as a WR. Towson Tigers WR Gerrard Sheppard also received an invitation to camp from the Ravens, as well as Penn DL and Gilman grad Brandon Copeland.
Jeff Braun, a guard out of West Virginia, signed with the Ravens. Braun played prep basketball and football at Winters Mill High School in Westminster Maryland.
Other rookies receiving invitations to camp from Baltimore include:
Chris Harris, TE-Elon
Jordan Devey, OL-Memphis
Will Pericak, DE-Colorado
Brynden Trawick, S-Troy
Jose Cheeseborough, DB-Florida International
Omarius Hines, H-Back-Florida
Ray Holley, RB/WR-Louisiana Tech
Nathan Stanley, QB-Southeastern Louisiana
Rogers Gaines, OT-Tennessee State
Moe Lee, DB-Utah
All of these players and the Ravens 10 draft picks will be in Baltimore Thursday for the start of rookie mini-camp.
