As I prepare to watch the 2015 Senior Bowl, here is a list of players – by position – that the Ravens scouting department has interviewed. It tips the Ravens hand in the direction the team is leaning towards in terms of needs:
- RB – David Cobb – Minnesota
- FB – Zach Zenner – South Dakota State
- TE – Nick Boyle – Delaware
- WR – Justin Hardy – East Carolina, Tyler Lockett – Kansas State, Devin Smith – Ohio State
- G – Tre Jackson – Florida State, Laken Tomlinson – Duke, Jamil Douglas – Arizona State
- DT – Grady Jarrett – Clemson
- DE – Nate Orchard – Utah, Lorenzo Mauldin – Louisville, Owamagbe Odighizuwa – UCLA, Henry Anderson – Stanford
- ILB – Stephone Anthony – Clemson, Bryce Hager – Baylor
- CB – Craig Mager – Texas State, Eric Rowe – Utah, JaCorey Shepherd – Kansas, Quinten Rollins – Miami (Ohio)
The Ravens like mature players. They gravitate towards team captains, as leadership is a trait that they value. They also love game film, and the Senior Bowl presents an opportunity to evaluate these players against their peers. Should be fun to watch, as there is no doubt that we will see a handful of these players in a Ravens uniform sometime between April 30 – May 2, at the conclusion of the 2015 NFL draft.

New Politics is the band that does that song you sing along to despite not knowing a single word.
