BALTIMORE, Md. — The Baltimore Ravens selected Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise "Hollywood" Brown with the 25th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Brown was the first wide receiver to be picked in this year's draft.

The Ravens acquired the 25th pick after trading their 22nd overall selection to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for picks No. 25, 127 (fourth round) and 197 (sixth round).

Marquise Brown is the cousin of former Pittsburgh Steelers and current Oakland Raiders star receiver Antonio Brown.

Last year Brown scored ten touchdowns (all receptions) for the Sooners as a junior. He registered 75 catches for 1,318 yards. He played in 12 games.

He is coming off a foot injury but said he'll be ready for training camp.
