Wilkerson's Ravens' Visit "Great"

Temple defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson had a private workout with the Baltimore Ravens yesterday after which he termed the visit "great" and says he would love to come back to Baltimore as a member of the team. Wilkerson met with GM Ozzie Newsome, head coach John Harbaugh and defensive line coach Clarence Brooks. Brooks had previously seen Wilkerson work out at Temple's 'Pro Day' but touring him around the Ravens Training Complex at One Winning Drive in Owings Mills obviously impressed the fast rising draft hopeful.

At one point, Wilkerson was not seen as a first round talent but most Mock Drafts now have him being selected somewhere in the second half of the first round. While he played mostly defensive tackle in college, he is projected to be a defensive end in either a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme, both of which would fit in well with the Ravens confusing defensive playbook.

As far as most Ravens fans go, it really doesn't matter where he plays as long as he adds to the team's pass rush and takes some pressure off of Terrell Suggs by getting to the opposing quarterback. See more on the story at the National Football Post.
