The Baltimore Ravens will hold their first full team practice of 2021 training camp on July 28th. With just under one month to go until that day, Baltimore will look to get everything with their roster in order, which will hopefully include signing the remainder of their 2021 draft class.

The Ravens drafted eight players in the 2021 draft, and have signed six of their draft class members so far. The only two rookies who haven’t signed their contracts yet in Baltimore are both third rounders in guard Ben Cleveland and defensive back Brandon Stephens.

Negotiations for third round picks have been over recent years, with the “25 percent rule”, third rounders having no set base salary, and more reasons being sticking points for some players. With contracts sometimes being difficult to work out with third round players, there are usually a few more third round picks that remain unsigned this late in the offseason as opposed to players who were taken in other rounds.

Even with both Cleveland and Stephens still unsigned, there’s no reason to believe that the two won’t agree to terms and be ready to go by the time training camp begins. The Ravens are excited about their two third rounders, and should see them on the field very soon.
