Ravens sign fourth-round cornerback Tavon Young


The Ravens continued to make quick work of signing their 2016 draft class by agreeing to a deal with fourth-round cornerback Tavon Young on Monday morning.
The Temple product from Oxon Hills became the eighth of Baltimore’s 11 draft picks to ink his four-year contract as the signing process has become elementary with the the most-recent collective bargaining agreement signed in 2011. The only Ravens draft picks who had yet to sign through Monday night were first-round offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley, third-round defensive end Bronson Kaufusi, and sixth-round wide receiver Keenan Reynolds.
The 104th overall pick and the first of a record five fourth-round selections made by the Ravens in last month’s draft, the 5-foot-9 Young is expected to compete with veteran Kyle Arrington for the nickel cornerback role this summer.
