The Baltimore Ravens had two unsigned members of their 2021 draft class in the days leading up to Baltimore’s rookies reporting to training camp. Now just two days after the first-year players got into the building, the Ravens have their entire draft class signed and ready to go.

After signing offensive lineman Ben Cleveland on Tuesday, the team officially announced on Wednesday that they had inked defensive back Brandon Stephens to his rookie deal.

Stephens originally started out at UCLA as a running back, but after playing on offense for two years, decided to transfer to SMU, where he switched over to defensive back. In his two years playing on the defensive side of the ball, Stephens accumulated 92 total tackles and one interception, playing primarily at cornerback.

The Ravens have said that they view Stephens as a free safety-type player, so he could see time all over the secondary in his first year. It still remains to be seen how much playing time he’ll receive as a rookie, but with his 6-foot-0, 214 pound frame, he offers a lot of upside and potential as an athlete.
