Here's a roundup of what the Baltimore Ravens did on Day 3 of the NFL draft:
Brent Urban, DL, Virginia (No. 134 overall): The Canadian native is a potentially exciting pick for the Ravens because of his size (6-foot-7) and athleticism. Urban can be used at different spots along the line and could develop into a starter, according to director of college scouting Joe Hortiz. He had ankle surgery and may miss all of the offseason spring workouts.
Lorenzo Taliaferro, RB, Coastal Carolina (No. 138): The small-school back is the type of bruising, big runner the Ravens have wanted for the past couple of years. A one-cut runner who is a good fit for Gary Kubiak's offense, Taliaferro doesn't have a great burst but he provides insurance behind starter Ray Rice (who could face an NFL suspension) and backup Bernard Pierce (who won't suit up until training camp because of offseason shoulder surgery).
John Urschel, G Penn State (No. 175): The two-time All-Big Ten guard has excelled in the class room, winning the William V. Campbell Trophy, also known as the academic Heisman. He can play all their interior positions on the line, and his football intelligence could translate to being a center down the road.
Keith Wenning, QB, Ball State (No. 194): A four-year starter who threw for more than 4,000 yards with 35 touchdowns and 10 fourth-quarter comebacks. He will likely serve as the No. 3 quarterback this year and get a chance to become Joe Flacco's primary backup in 2015, when Tyrod Taylor is a free agent.
Michael Campanaro, WR, Wake Forest (No. 218): The Ravens traded a 2015 sixth-round pick to the Cleveland Browns for a seventh-rounder this year, which they used on the Columbia, Md., native. Campanaro is a shifty slot receiver and returner who really sold the Ravens with an impressive private workout.
