OWINGS MILLS — The Baltimore Ravens have been assigned a rookie
pool figure of $4.318 million to sign their haul of eight draft picks.

The total combined compensation for those deals can’t exceed
$23.749 million.

The Ravens’ draft class includes second-round Alabama outside
linebacker Courtney Upshaw and Iowa State offensive guard-tackle Kelechi
Osemele.

Although the Ravens are just $1.653 million under the NFL
salary-cap limit, including Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice’s unsigned $7.742
million franchise tender, the rookie pool number operates as a cap within the
cap so teams can sign their draft selections.
