Prior to the start of training camp, Baltimore’s fourth-round pick (No. 119 overall), Jalyn Armour-Davis, signed his rookie contract.
He is the first Tide player chosen by Ravens GM Eric DeCosta since he took office in January, but the team has a history of selecting Tide players, including 2017’s 16th overall choice, All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey.
Following starters Humphrey and Marcus Peters, Armour-Davis will battle for playing time as a backup cornerback for the Ravens. Armour-Davis, who stands at 6 feet and weighs 197 pounds, had 11 starts for the Crimson Tide last year thanks to his physical play and proficiency with the media.
He is often compared to Anthony Averett, another Alabama product who played cornerback for the Ravens before joining the Raiders in free agency.
When healthy, Armour-Davis has always been an effective player, but his history of injuries likely caused him to slide to the fourth round.
After having a knee scope in high school, he had to sit out his first year of college at Alabama. He was sidelined for the Iron Bowl, the SEC title game, and the NFL’s championship game all last year.
Armour-Davis is thrilled to be starting over with the Ravens and is optimistic about having a long and healthy professional career.
