When general manager Ozzie Newsome spoke to the media at last month's “State of the Ravens” news conference, he did everything but guarantee that the organization would add the type of pass catcher that it needs before the start of the 2014 season. “I think we've identified the type of player that we're looking for,” Newsome said. “That player will be available ... whether it's in free agency, whether he's a cap casualty, whether it's in the draft or whether it's through trade.

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith took to his new blog Wednesday to show support for University of Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, who came out publicly Sunday night . "I would personally like to applaud Michael Sam for being the first in this profession to be open and honest about his sexuality," Smith wrote. "This shows his courage and strength. " Sam, whose announcement of his sexual orientation first appeared in The New York Times and ESPN, is poised to become the NFL's first openly gay player if he's selected in May's NFL draft.

Editor's note: Towson junior running back Terrance West declared early for the NFL draft after setting school records with 4,584 rushing yards and 86 touchdowns. The 5-foot-11, 223-pound Baltimore native is not enrolled at Towson this semester as he pursues the NFL and is sharing his draft experiences with Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson. This is the second in an occasional series leading up to the draft in May. I tune it all out. I don't really see all the hype and draft predictions and stuff like that.

The NFL scouting combine is in a couple of weeks, unofficially starting the league's silly season. But even though the NFL draft is still three long months away, draft analysts continue to update their mock drafts.   The last time I rounded up a few notable mock drafts, back in early January , many draft analysts linked the Ravens to Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, whose size and strong hands could make him a fit. This time around, I read several mock drafts that had the Ravens taking Evans with their first-round pick.

While the Ravens' brass will undoubtedly reiterate its intention to draft the “best-player available” countless times before May's draft, it is already widely assumed that the team will use its first pick to either augment the offensive line or add another pass-catching weapon for quarterback Joe Flacco . It would be hard to quibble with either choice but watching the Seattle Seahawks' dismantling of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII was...

MOBILE, ALA -- Michael Campanaro had already crafted a plan, convincing the defense that he intended to run another trademark intermediate route with a quick inside fake. Instead of cutting his pattern short at practice this week heading into Saturday's Senior Bowl all-star game, the Wake Forest wide receiver from River Hill dashed behind the secondary and made an over-the-shoulder touchdown catch. It was the kind of savvy, textbook play that prompted Atlanta Falcons wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie to single out the Clarksville native as an example of how to play the position to the other receivers on the North squad.

MOBILE, Ala. - The Ravens' belief in the value of the Senior Bowl as a tool to compare draft prospects from all levels of college football was evident last April. The team scouted half of its 10-player rookie draft class at the all-star game - from small-school standouts like third-round defensive tackle Brandon Williams (Missouri Southern State), fourth-round fullback Kyle Juszczyk (Harvard) and seventh-round wide receiver Aaron Mellette (Elon) to two players from the Big Ten Conference in fourth-round outside linebacker John Simon (Ohio State)

The NFL draft is four months away -- it got bumped back to May this year -- and the college football season just wrapped up. But that hasn't stopped some draft analysts from putting out early mock drafts. (It may seem a little too early to start thinking about all that, but the insatiable demand for draft information is undeniable. Watch. This blog post will be one of the most-clicked items on our website by lunchtime.) General manager Ozzie Newsome said Wednesday that the Ravens will be looking for bigger, stronger offensive linemen, a sure-handed wide receiver and an athletic safety during the offseason.

Terrance West, the running back who set Football Championship Subdivision records while leading Towson to the school's first title game appearance, confirmed Tuesday morning that he will skip his senior year and enter the NFL draft. “I'm ready for the challenge,” West said. “I'll adapt to anything that's thrown at me. I'm just prepared. I had a good thing with Towson. They prepared me very well, and it should be fun.” West, a Baltimore native and Northwestern graduate, said he made up his mind after meeting with Tigers coach Rob Ambrose on Sunday -- one day after Towson lost, 35-7, to three-time reigning national champion North Dakota State at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

FRISCO, Texas  - Running back Terrance West said he has not made a decision about whether to return to Towson for his senior year, and will meet with coach Rob Ambrose on Sunday to review his options. West rushed for 99 yards on 22 carries, caught five passes for 39 yards and scored on a 3-yard run in the Tigers' 35-7 loss to North Dakota State in the Football Championship Subdivision title game Saturday. He has already set FCS records for rushing yards in a single season (2,509)
