Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Ravens' picks: Round 4/114 -- Dennis Pitta, TE, 6-4, 245, BYU, This was the surprise pick, especially after the Ravens selected Dickson one round earlier. Pitta is another pass-catching tight end who has soft hands. Unlike Dickson, he isn't considered an explosive athlete. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Dennis Pitta News
08/22/16 - TE Dennis Pitta has a fractured finger and there is no timetable for his return. Pitta suffered the injury during a scuffle at practice. "It's absurd that it even happened," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "It's a break in the finger, as it turned out, when they did the MRI. They're afraid that if he gets it hit again, then they may have to put a screw in it. It's just that kind of a fracture." Pitta has been trying to make a comeback from two devastating hip injuries in the past three years.

I do like the competitiveness. I like the fact that Pitta is out here making plays, and he's blocking people, and he's getting after it."
