The Ravens placed rookie center Alex Thompson on the reserve/did not report list Thursday.

The team’s rookies were scheduled to report for training camp Wednesday.

Thompson went undrafted out of Monmouth and signed with the Ravens as a free agent. He was a three-time All-Big South honoree with 44 starts in 45 career games.

He also was a third-team All-American last season.

Thompson, who won a state wrestling championship in New Jersey as a heavyweight in 2013, attended Milford Academy after high school and then went to West Virginia to wrestle before transferring to Monmouth.

  1. A UDFA doesn’t show for training camp? Hopefully he’s got a good reason.

  2. Monmouth is a pretty good school, maybe he got a good job after graduating and knowing what a longshot he was he decided the “real” world was his best bet

  3. He’s an UDFA from a non-power 5 school, yes, but he has a legit NFL body and a pretty realistic path to playing time even as a rookie. Matt Skura and Bradley Bozeman are the only other centers on the roster. And James Hurst is moving to RT full time, so they are thin at guard, too.
