Here is a list of players the Ravens have met with at the combine. It is no secret that the Ravens are looking to add to the WR group and that the Offensive Line needs some help. But some other positions they are looking at might be a bit more telling. I will provide the list of names, positions, post a link to their combine numbers, and potential round of the draft they might go. This first group is a list of Running Backs. With the off field issues of Ray Rice and his complete wash out of a season last year due to a combination of injuries and being in less than ideal shape and Bernard Pierce trying to come back from shoulder surgery, this may be more of a need than most fans think.
RB: Ka’Deem Carey : Supposedly a first round talent despite lack of ideal size and off field issues.
RB: Carlos Hyde : 6’0” 230lbs of tackle breaking, between the tackles running. Conditioning is questionable and misses games with nagging injuries.
RB: Terrance West : Small, compact, but thickly built local guy who burst on the scene at Towson. Knee injury history, lots of miles on the odometer in college could mean early exit from NFL.
RB: Andre Williams : Prototypical size, decent speed, and runs with power. Is also considered smart and a good blocker. Seems to have all-around skills.
Running backs don’t typically go in the first round anymore unless they have some extremely impressive talent. The Ravens don’t really have a hammering type bruiser back so it wouldn’t shock me to see them go for one of the bigger guys like Hyde or Williams if they manage to drop to the second draft day.
