The Baltimore Ravens signed tight end Hayden Hurst, their first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the NFL Network reported Tuesday.
Hurst, the 25th overall selection and first of Baltimore's two first-round picks, signed a standard rookie four-year contract with an option for a fifth.
The deal for Hurst will be worth an estimated $11.1 million, Pro Football Talk reported, citing terms of the collective bargaining agreement.
Hurst was a walk-on at South Carolina in 2015 and set the school record for career receptions by a tight end with 100 over his three seasons.
A first-team All-SEC pick in 2017, Hurst had 44 receptions for 559 yards and two touchdowns. He set personal bests in 2016 with 48 receptions for 616 yards.
Hurst was a former MLB draft pick of the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2012 and spent two seasons in the organization's minor league system.
