Ravens enter 2017 draft with fewest picks in seven years

The Baltimore Ravens enter the 2017 draft with their fewest number of picks since 2010.

The Ravens officially have seven picks this year, according to the NFL. The draft will take place April 27-29 in Philadelphia.

Baltimore gained a third-round compensatory pick on Friday for losing All-Pro guard Kelechi Osemele in free agency last offseason. It's the 99th overall pick.

The Ravens, however, give their seventh-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams in a 2015 trade for wide receiver Chris Givens. That deal was originally reported as a 2018 seventh-round pick, but it turned out to be a 2017 seventh-rounder. Givens caught 19 passes for 346 yards and one touchdown for Baltimore that season.

The last time the Ravens had this few amount of picks was seven years ago. That class included contributors such as tight end Dennis Pitta and defensive lineman Arthur Jones as well as busts such as linebacker Sergio Kindle and nose tackle Terrence Cody.

Baltimore has had at least nine picks in its previous four drafts, including 11 last season.

Here are the Ravens' seven draft picks in the 2017 draft:

First round: No. 16 overall

Second round: No. 47 overall

Third round: Nos. 78 and 99* overall

Fourth round: No. 122 overall

Fifth round: No. 159 overall

Sixth round: No. 186 overall (moved up from No. 198 by trading C Jeremy Zuttah to 49ers)

Seventh round: None (to Rams in trade for WR Chris Givens)

*--Compensatory
