Ravens pick up three players on day 2 of draft

The Baltimore Ravens selected three players in the second and third rounds of the NFL Draft, two of which were Florida State defenders.

With the 48th overall pick, they took DT Timmy Jernigan, and with the 79th overall pick they selected safety Terrence Brooks.  Both Jernigan and Brooks were key contributors to the Seminoles 2013 National Championship winning team, and helped anchor their defense up the middle.  With the 99th overall pick, the Ravens selected former Colorado State tight end, Crockett Gillmore. 

Last season for Florida State, Jernigan tallied 63 tackles, 4.5 sacks and 11 tackles for a loss.  He is a versatile athlete who can line up at multiple spots on the defensive line. 

Brooks recorded 50 or more tackles in the past two seasons for the Seminoles to go along with two interceptions both years.  He is a safety who can contribute in coverage and run support, and should compete with recently signed Darian Stewart for playing time this coming year.

Gillmore had 47 receptions for 577 yards and two touchdowns in his final season with Colorado State.  He will learn behind recently signed Owen Daniels.

The Ravens were looking to add depth to their defensive line after the departure of Arthur Jones and to the safety position after letting James Ihedigbo walk in free agency.
