These are all the links I could find for now, but I know that Eben Britton, Alex Mack, Percy Harvin, Darrius Heyward-Bey, and Sean Smith will/have worked out as well. Props to ravens24x7 and the guys that post over at FF.

Dude, I've been lookin everywhere for this list. Thanks for posting it! +rep :)

glad we are working out WR's. It is far and away our #1 need for the first round and Darrius Heyward-Bey, Kenny Britt and Hakeem Nicks are all WR's that I'd love to have. I could live with Harvin as well.

I find it interesting that we have worked out 2 RB's, and both of them are power guys. A precursor to McGahee's future? I hope not.

No, I was actually kinda hoping we would consider a power back. Mainly because we haven't resigned Lorenzo Neal which means McClain may need to move back to FB. If that happens, then who's the power back for us? I'd be fine with Rice and McGahee but adding a power runner would be nice. Or we could just take Quinn Johnson late day 2 and keep McClain at RB. Johnson just flat out bulldozes linebackers and blows away puny DB's.

I just don't think that we would be willing to move McClain back to a primary lead-blocking role because of how good a weapon he was last year. I'd expect us to re-sign Neal or bring in another FB through the draft/FA before we take another RB.

yeah I agree, I'd rather us keep McClain at RB and draft a FB. But I still want McGahee to get more carries. McClain should be the starter during the november/december stretch. Thats when his style of running is at its best. McGahee should be the feature back for most of the season with Ray Rice in the 4th quarter. Throw in McClain at short yardage and goaline and its a perfect backfield.

My favorite player for the Ravens in the draft, Brandon Pettigrew, visited Wednesday. Check the top of the first post for link.

I love Pettigrew, by far the most complete TE in this draft class and it's not even close. I highly doubt he falls to us but if he did I really hope we'd take him, he is a beast, no better word to describe him.

If I am correct and Pettigrew is long gone by our pick, I want Kenny Britt, there's a good chance he could be at our pick and he has really separated himself from Hakeem Nicks in my eyes. Britt just brings a physicality to the game that I don't think Nicks provides, not to mention Nicks has had an awful off-season and it has really turned me off to the idea of selecting him as a first round pick.

The guy is a physical specimen and if that homerun threat WR isn't there (DHB!!!!!) then we have to take Britt, he would be a great compliment to our smaller shiftier WR's in Clayton and Mason.

I don't think he will be there either, but my dream is that his position and less-than-overwhelming combine numbers drop him... but I doubt it. As for Britt, IDK about him. I just don't like him, and I've hear that he's not as physical when going for the ball as he's made out to be / looks like he should.

Right now my top 3 WR's are easily Crabtree, Maclin, and Heyward-Bey. I'm starting to think that DHB won't fall to us and the other 2 definetly won't. That would leave Harvin, Britt, and Nicks for potential 1st round WR's. I'd be happy with any one of them, but I'd still be wary of them at the same time. Hopefully Vontae Davis, Tyson Jackson, or Brandon Pettigrew would be on the board so we wouldn't have to worry about it...

On my WR rankings Britt has jumped Nicks and is right behind DHB, hence if DHB is gone I want Kenny Britt to be the guy at #26, more so than Pettigrew!

I've loved Britt ever since I watched some of his highlights. He's tough, physical, got great hands and gets good YAC as well. Also a willing blocker. Great attitude as well. I'd love him in Baltimore.

T.J. Lang coming in for a visit.

I know very little on Lang, but I think he can be a very quality backup for us. Wouldn't mind him late.

Its getting down to crunch time and we have so much info on all these guys. I am just glad that I don't have Ozzie's job right now. Every year the data gets deeper and deeper. These guys all have so many talents and can add to our team but who is the perfect fit??
