The Baltimore Ravens are once again seeking more help at the wide receiver position, as the uncertain future surrounding Odell Beckham Jr. and the uninspiring collection of veterans on the roster should have John Harbaugh looking long and hard at what went down at the 2024 NFL Combine.

While players like Xavier Worthy and Adonai Mitchell cementing themselves as first-round picks dominated discussion, there were multiple Day 2 players who continued to show they won't be on the board for much longer after some insane testing numbers.

South Carolina wide receiver Xavier Legette, who had been slipping just a tad due to some concerns about his ability to win at the line of scrimmage, helped reassure those who questioned his speed with times and will make sure he doesn't escape the first two rounds.

With two solid times of 4.47 and 4.39 with a frame of 220 pounds, Legette answered questions about his speed and how he would translate to the NFL. If he is still available anywhere near the Ravens' second-round pick at No. 62 overall, they might need to trade up to acquire him.

Baltimore Ravens must target Xavier Legette on Day 2 of 2024 NFL Draft

Legette caught 71 passes for 1,255 yards (17.7 yards per catch) with seven touchdowns last season. Between his impressive straight-line speed and an ability to make contested catches topped only by one or two prospects in this class, Legette put a lot of good moments on tape.

Legette's 9.92 Relative Athletic Score puts him 24th all-time on a list of over 3,000 wideouts in terms of raw talent. With a 40-inch vertical jump and tremendous speed at his weight, no one will doubt the fact Legette has all the tools to become a first-rate receiver in the NFL.

Legette's lateral mobility is still below average, and he could be a bit better when it comes to separating at the line of scrimmage. Legette was only a starter for one of his five seasons with the Gamecocks, which could lead some to believe that he is a one-year flash in the pan and a product of an NFL quarterback prospect in Spencer Rattler.

Legette might be a bit of a risk, but no one would fault Eric DeCosta for rolling the dice on a player with his physical gifts. Jackson hasn't had a receiver with his type of traits in the past, making this an easy decision for the front office.
