The Baltimore Ravens had been able to get most of their 2021 rookie class under contract before training camp, but two players remained unsigned in third-round selections Ben Cleveland and Brandon Stephens. However, on Tuesday that list was trimmed in half as it was announced by the team that Cleveland had signed his rookie deal.

Cleveland is expected to compete for the starting left guard job in Baltimore that was vacated when former left guard Bradley Bozeman was moved back to center, which was the position that he played in college.

The former University of Georgia star is a 6-foot-6, 335 pound mauler who is extremely physical and has a strong base while also being able to move defenders off of their spot in the run game. He has some limitations due to being an average overall athlete, but is a very well-rounded player who should be a mainstay on the Ravens’ offensive line for years to come.

Currently, Stephens is the only player from Baltimore’s 2021 draft class to have not signed his rookie deal.
