The Ravens are hosting USC receiver and Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year, Marqise Lee this week. The 6-foot 192-pound prospect appears destined to be a first round draft pick.
At the NFL scouting combine, Lee ran a 4.52 40 yard dash and had a 38 inch vertical jump. With deaf parents and an injury filled junior season, Lee has faced adversity well and is highly thought of to be looked at in the first round by many teams. His sophomore year saw him have 118 receptions, 1,712 yards and 14 touchdowns.
The Ravens met with Lee back in February at the NFL scouting combine. When asked how the meeting went, Lee said:
I liked talking with the Ravens. That was a fun, good meeting. We'll see if they pick me in May, you never know.
In most mock drafts Marqise Lee is available at the Ravens' number 17 spot. If the Ravens can find a trade partner and trade down, there is an opportunity that he could be available around the early 20s as well giving the Ravens some additional picks in a draft that is deep at the receiver position.
