3. Ravens target: Tariq Woolen, CB, UTSA

Tariq Woolen is an NFL Combine dream. Standing at an absurd 6-foot-4, Woolen is a former wide receiver who is a safe bet to be the talk of Indianapolis at this year’s Combine.

Apart from his ridiculous size, Woolen is an incredible athlete who could run very well in the 40-yard dash. Expect Woolen to make himself a lot of money this week.

4. Ravens target: Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn State

The Ravens need safety help, and although they aren’t going to have a shot at Kyle Hamilton, Penn State’s Jaquan Brisker could be a solid consolation prize.

Brisker opted out of his team’s bowl game and the Senior Bowl, meaning that his performance this week holds more weight than it normally would. He could establish himself as the second-best safety in this class with a strong showing.

5. Ravens target: Daxton Hill, S, Michigan

One player in competition with Brisker for that title is Michigan’s Daxton Hill. Hill was a do-it-all chess piece at Michigan, and he has the athleticism to impress scouts at the Combine.

New Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald obviously has experience with Hill. That could make him a target for the Ravens in the draft, possibly at pick 45 if he makes it that far.

6. Ravens target: Nick Cross, S, Maryland

Nick Cross is a player who should be very familiar to fans of Maryland football. An experienced starter, Cross is a defensive playmaker with ample range and athleticism.

The Ravens are looking for a true free safety and going the local route with Cross makes sense. He’s a Day 3 prospect on tape alone, but his performance at the Combine could skyrocket his stock.
