According to General Manager Ozzie Newsome, the Ravens have signed six of their eight draft picks.
 
Now, only first-rounder Jimmy Smith and third-rounder Jah Reid remain.
 
It all began with wideout Torrey Smith, the second-round selection out of Maryland.  Reports emerged that Smith agreed to a four-year deal Wednesday evening, followed shortly by reports that Tandon Doss and Tyrod Taylor had also agreed.
 
“I think it will be done quickly. At least I hope so,” Smith said of his contract negotiations on Tuesday.  “I am ready to play football, but I know it is definitely going to be hectic. There is paperwork everywhere. They are working hard, so hopefully something will get done soon.”
 
The Ravens also inked their two fifth-rounders – cornerback Chykie Brown and defensive end Pernell McPhee – and seventh-round running back Anthony Allen.
 
For Jimmy Smith and Reid to participate in the Ravens’ first training camp practice, which is scheduled for Thursday at 1 p.m., they must sign.
 
At this point, only one first-round draft pick has signed, Tampa Bay’s Adrian Clayborn, who was the 20th-overall selection.
