TJ Onwuanibe, an eighth-grader with a rare form of brain cancer, announced the Ravens' first-round draft pick as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Onwuanibe announced Baltimore’s selection of Marlon Humphrey on Thursday night. He recently learned that his cancer is in remission.

Head coach John Harbaugh informed Onwuanibe that his wish would come true in a special video at a school assembly.

"I heard that you asked Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic to send you to the NFL draft, and your wish is to announce the Ravens' first pick," Harbaugh said in the video. "Well, great news. Next week, your wish will be granted in Philadelphia at the draft. How about that!"
