Ravens Select Georgia DT DeAngelo Tyson In Draft
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have selected Georgia defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson in the seventh round of the NFL draft.
Tyson is a 6’2″ 315-pounder who can stop the run but is not yet an accomplished pass rusher.
A starter in his last two seasons, Tyson had 16 tackles in a game against Georgia Tech in 2010.
Tyson was taken with the 236th overall pick. He is the last of Baltimore’s picks in the draft.
The Ravens did not have a first-round pick. General manger Ozzie Newsome traded it to Minnesota for a second-rounder and a fourth-round pick, the latter of which was used Saturday to take center/guard Gino Gradkowski of Delaware.
