The Ravens have their first-round pick under contract.

C.J. Mosley, taken by the Ravens with the 17th overall pick in the draft, signed his deal today. Now he’ll get to work finding his place in the Ravens’ defense, and head coach John Harbaugh said after seeing Mosley at the Ravens’ rookie minicamp that Mosley looks ready to start as a rookie.

“Probably the first impression is that he seems very comfortable in a defense. He understands the game very well. So, he’s been really well-coached, obviously, down [at Alabama],” Harbaugh said. “It’s not like he doesn’t know what gap he is fitting in. It’s not like he doesn’t know what adjustment to make. That’s a long way ahead for a rookie. Plus, he is athletic, and he moves around really well.”

The Ravens now have all of their draft picks signed but one. Third-round safety Terrence Brooks hasn’t signed yet.
