Hometown wide receiver Michael Campanaro had "awesome" workout today with the Ravens. The former River Hill and Wake Forest wide receiver enjoyed his time at the Ravens' facility. He was drilled by wide receivers coach Bobby Engram and offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.

Campanaro talked about the experience during an interview with the Baltimore Sun:

We did a lot of bag drills to start off and then receiver stuff, footwork, catching the ball clean. We did the Ravens' route tree. It was a great workout.

The 5-foot-9 Campanaro ran the 40 yard dash in 4.46 seconds and is hoping to be drafted as high as the third round. The Ravens would use him as a combination or depth at the wide receiver spot and at special teams. He met with the Ravens informally at both the combine and the Senior Bowl, showing that there is definitely some interest if he were to be available at the right spot.

Campanaro caught a school-record 229 passes for the Demon Deacons and finished with 2,506 career yards and 14 touchdowns and sounded excited and hopeful at the idea of returning and playing for Baltimore.

Definitely, I think it would be a potential landing spot for me. I think the things they do in their offense I can definitely fit that mold. I got good vibes from the coaching staff. Coach Engram said he gives them his outlook on receivers and they get together as a staff to talk about everyone.

I feel good about my meetings with him. We'll just see on draft day. It was a great feeling working out for the Ravens. I'm just thankful for the opportunity to work out for the Baltimore Ravens' coaching staff.

Look for the Ravens to snag Campanaro with the 134th or 138th picks in the NFL draft starting May 8th.
