Former Terp cornerback Dexter McDougle met with the Ravens at the local prospect day at the team headquarters. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound corner reportedly ran the 40 yard dash between 4.43 and 4.48 seconds but is coming off a nasty fractured shoulder blade, which limited him at the NFL combine and made him miss the final 9 games of last season with Maryland.

The Ravens are in need of a nickle cornerback after former Ravens corner Corey Graham signed with the Buffalo Bills this offseason. With Jimmy Smith eligible for a 5th year option and Lardarius Webb getting healthy after tearing his ACL in 2012, the Ravens appear to be set with their starting corners for a while, but the secondary is always a spot where having too much talent is never a bad thing.

While McDougle's size is a concern, he is a smart and quick corner that is quick to come up and tackle. Because of that, he is susceptable to biting on fakes and will need to settle down a little. Coming to the Ravens would reunite McDougle with Torrey Smith, his high school teammate.

A hard working player with tremendous heart, his physical attributes and injury will undoubtedly push him into the mid to later rounds where the Ravens could pick up a good option to compete for the open nickle corner position.
