To be fair, players will express desire to play for any team in interviews, but given he was a star at Maryland, his desire is likely genuine to remain in the state as a Baltimore Raven.
Moore said he spoke to former Maryland receivers Stefon Diggs and Torrey Smith before the combine. As you know, Smith was drafted by the Ravens in 2011 and had, by far, his best years with them.

Moore has been pegged as a day two selection by most pundits, leaving him as one of many receivers projected to come off the board in rounds two and three. The Ravens could be in a prime position to grab a wide receiver in round two.
During his three years at Maryland, Moore had 146 receptions for 2,027 yards and 17 touchdowns. The Ravens will meet with countless other players in the coming days. The fact that they are starting with several receivers could be a good sign for their desire to add offensive playmakers in the draft.
