The Ravens drafted Bredeson out of the University of Michigan, with the No. 143 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Bredeson played all four years at Michigan where he was named a two-time All-American and earned a spot on the All-Big 10 Offensive Team.

Bredeson played a limited role in the Ravens offense last year, finishing the season with only 48 snaps in 10 games. Bredeson finished the season without starting a single game for the Ravens and was placed on the Injury Reserve list in the week leading up to Baltimore’s Divisional Round matchup against the Titans with a knee injury.

This now leaves the Ravens with five fourth-round draft picks in the 2022 NFL draft, and 10 total.
