You can add two more names to the list of players invited to the Baltimore Ravens’ local prospects day workout, as reported by the Baltimore Sun: Oklahoma State safety Josh Furman and Towson cornerback Tye Smith.  So far the Ravens have invited a total of six players, with four of them being defensive backs.

Josh Furman was an outside linebacker at Oklahoma State, but projects as a safety in the NFL due to his size.  The 6’1″, 210 pound Old Mill graduate ran a 4.47 40 yard dash at his pro day and recorded a 38 inch vertical leap and a 10-4 broad jump.  Furman played in 32 games, recording 64 tackles (14 for a loss), 7 sacks, and one forced fumble last season.

Tye Smith measures in at 6′, 184 pounds.  He ran the 40 in (ironically enough) 4.47 seconds at his pro day workout.  He was a three year starter at Towson and racked up 312 tackles, 6 interceptions, 6 forced fumbles, and 25 passes defensed in his college career.  A projected late round pick, Smith recorded a 36.5 inch vertical, 10-4 broad jump, and 15 reps on the bench at the NFL Combine.

The Ravens’ local prospects day will take place at the team’s facilities on April 21st.
