If the Ravens don't take a receiver in the first round, there's a good chance they look for one in the second.

One player to look out for is Fresno State receiver Davante Adams. Adams led all receivers in the NCAA in receptions (131), yards (1,718) and touchdowns (24). He's an big-game receiver with great hands, something the Ravens have probably already taken notice of.

He also has solid size at 6-2, 215 pounds, meaning that if Jacoby Jones heads elsewhere, his frame would fit right in on the outside just fine. His 40-yard dash time is in the mid 4.5s, meaning he's not a burner down the field. But he could be a quality possession receiver with the ability to line up at multiple spots.

Here's a clip from this past season featuring highlights of Adams in action:
