Former IU defensive lineman Jovan Swann signs deal with Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to terms with former Indiana defensive lineman Jovan Swann according to a report by Tom Pelissero of NFL Media.

Swann went undrafted in April and had a tryout with the Pittsburgh Steelers at their mini-camp on May 14-16, his agent Greg Bookey told The Daily Hoosier in early May.  He recently worked out with the Houston Texans.

Swann, a 6-foot-2, 280-pound defensive tackle, recorded four tackles, three quarterback hurries and a pass breakup last season. At Stanford in 2019, he recorded 4.5 sacks and seven tackles for loss.

Hailing from the south Indianapolis suburbs, Swann played three years at Stanford before graduating and transferring to IU for the 2020 season.

Swann was part of the main defensive line rotation in his lone season at IU.  He appeared in all eight games.

Swann decided in January to forego his final season of college eligibility and enter the NFL Draft.

“I would like to thank Coach Allen and Indiana University for giving me another opportunity to play college ball at a high level in the Big Ten,” Swann said at the time. … “I am thankful to have been able to be part of such a historical team this past season. Even with its ups and down, it will be one to remember.”

Swann had 87 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, a fumble recovery, an interception and three pass breakups in 38 career college games.
