NFL Draft Sleepers Ravens Might Covet

USA TODAY Sports

Purely speculation, but here are a group of players in no apparent order, that could be on the Ravens radar after the first round is over.

Chris Harper, WR (KansasState): 6'1" / 229 pounds

Harper is a big, strong WR who could be considered to fill Anquan Boldin's role. He ran a 4.5 40-yard dash and tied for second among wide receivers with 20 reps of the 225-pound bench press.

Justin Pugh, OT (Syracuse): 6'5" / 307 pounds

Pugh is projected to most likely be a right tackle, but is big enough to put on the weight to play on the left side.

Cornelius Washington, DE (Georgia): 6'4" / 265 pounds

Washington was a Combine beast, running a 4.53 40-yard dash, 36 reps in the bench press, a 39" vertical jump and a 10'8" broad jump, all monster numbers for a guy that big.

Brandon Williams, DT (Missouri Southern): 6'1" / 335 pounds

Williams is a plug in the middle, strong enough to stand his ground and clog the run game, as evidenced by his 38 bench press reps.

Jelani Jenkins, ILB (Florida): 6'0" / 243 pounds

Jelani is a pure athlete, with a 4.67 40-yard dash and 27 reps in the bench press at the NFL Combine.

Sio Moore, OLB (Connecticut): 6'1" / 245 pounds

Another guy whose raw athleticism is off the charts, Sio ran a 4.62 40-yard dash, had 29bench press reps and an eye-popping 38" vertical leap.

T.J. McDonald, FS (USC): 6'3" / 219 pounds

McDonald is a big guy, with speed as well as obvious size. He ran a 4.54 40-yard dash and can out-jump most wide receivers, a key skills, with his 40" vertical jump.

Shamarko Thomas, SS (Syracuse): 5'9" / 213 pounds

Thomas may lack the height most teams would like to see, but he makes it up with his weight (see above), speed (4.37 40-yard dash), strength (28 bench press reps) and leaping ability (40.5" vertical).
