Maryland teen gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity from Ravens at NFL Draft

The first round of the NFL Draft gets underway on Thursday and the Ravens made sure a special fan will not only be there, but be a part of the process.

In 2015, T.J. Onwuanibe was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer and through Make-A-Wish he wanted the opportunity to announce a Ravens draft pick. 

Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced that dream would come true and not only would T.J. get to announce a draft pick, but the Ravens first round draft pick.

T.J. Onwuanibe was joined by the Ravens cheerleaders and mascot at McDonogh for the special reveal.

Here's the full version of the video coach John Harbaugh recorded.

Former Ravens safety arrested again, this time on grand theft, battery charges

Ex-Ravens safety Matt Elam was arrested for the second time in less than three months after an altercation with his girlfriend at her home in Delray Beach, Fla.

Police say Elam was arrested on grand theft and domestic battery charges after a fight broke out between the two around 4 a.m. Monday.

The former Florida Gators star — who was selected by the Ravens with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, came to the residence to retrieve his car, but fled on foot with his girlfriend's cell phone after she wouldn't give him any money, according to TMZ, which first broke the story.

Elam could face up to five years in prison under Florida law which lists grand theft of more than $300 a third degree felony, according to USA Today.

The 25-year-old was arrested in February for possession over 120 grams of marijuana and 3 grams of oxycodone, after which the Ravens announced their plans for the future did not include Elam.

Elam is currently being held on a $4,500 bond at the Palm Beach County jail.
