The Baltimore Ravens have signed two more draft picks from their 2014 class, general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome announced Saturday afternoon. DT Timmy Jernigan (second round) and DE Brent Urban (fourth round) each signed four-year contracts with the team.

The Ravens now have seven of their nine 2014 draft picks under contract.
