Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said he preferred for the Ravens to take a pass-rusher or cornerback.
With those options going earlier than expected, the Ravens went a different route with its first overall pick. The Ravens selected Central Florida receiver Breshad Perriman with 26th overall.
Perriman is 6-2, 220 pounds and ran 40 times of 4.24 and 4.27 at his pro day. Perriman will step in and fill the role left void with Torrey Smith leaving in free agency for San Francisco.
