BUFFALO, N.Y. -- University of Buffalo quarterback Drew Willy agreed to a rookie free-agent contract with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday after being overlooked in the NFL draft.
The deal was announced by Buffalo's athletics department Sunday. It was reached shortly after the two-day draft ended.
Willy capped his four-year college career by leading Buffalo (8-6) to its first winning season in 10 years in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision ranks, its first Mid-American Conference title and its first bowl appearance at any level, a 38-20 loss to Connecticut in the International Bowl.
The native of Randolph, N.J., set single-season school records as a senior with 3,304 passing yards and 25 touchdowns while throwing only six interceptions.
