Ravens Working Out Purdue's Kerrigan

The Baltimore Ravens will hold a private workout with Purdue's Ryan Kerrigan in the next week. Kerrigan is a defensive end that will more than likely be converted to an outside pass-rushing linebacker. He excelled at getting to the passer last year in college, notching 12.5 sacks. His non-stop motor reminds some of current Ravens OLB Jarret Johnson and from a pass rushing point-of-view, no pass rusher in Ravens history had a non-stop motor like DE Michael McCrary.

However, if the Ravens do end up taking Kerrigan with the 26th pick of the first round in April's NFL Draft, it will say a lot about their confidence (or lack thereof) in both former second round picks Paul Kruger and Sergio Kindle. Kruger has not developed into the player they expected when they originally drafted him and recently tried to turn him into a pass rushing specialist. Kindle's health is still in question as he has still not been released to begin football-related contact drills.

The lack of a pass rush has plagued the Ravens the past coule of years and makes Terrell Suggs' great year in 2010 even more amazing, as he could really use a bookend pass rusher to complement him and take some attention and double teams off of him.
