The Ravens are in need of a receiver and could use a running back for depth purposes.

Plenty at both of these positions have had great showings at the NFL combine. Here are a few names to keep an eye on as the offseason continues:

Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans

Evans, of course, has been on the Ravens' radar for some time now. The two parties met at the combine and Evans could be someone the Ravens covet if he begins to drop during the draft. During drills, Evans impressed with a 4.53 40-yard dash, an 11.58 in the 60-yard shuttle and a 37-inch vertical.

USC wide receiver Marqise Lee

Lee had a solid combine with a 38-inch vertical and a 10-foot 7-inch broad jump. The Ravens also met with Lee and should be interested in a receiver that has found a way to get open quite a bit during his college days.

Towson running back Terrance West

West ran an impressive 4.54 40-yard dash, considering he's 225 pounds. He benched 225 pounds 16 times, which was about average for running backs. He also met with the Ravens at the combine and is projected to be a mid-round pick.

Kent State running back Dri Archer

Archer was the running back that stole the show. He ran a 4.26 40-yard dash, benched 225 pounds 20 times, had a 38-inch vertical, a 10-2 broad jump, a 6.86 in the three-cone drills and a 4.06 in the 20-yard shuttle. Archer was very impressive, showcasing not just the speed MAC opponents were used to seeing, but strength and power. His draft stock will surely be on the rise.

Oregon State wide receiver Brandin Cooks

Cooks has been someone whose draft stock has been rising, and running a 4.33 40-yard dash will definitely help keep it moving in that direction. He also had a 6.76 in the three-cone drill and ran a 10.72 in the 60-yard shuttle.
