MOBILE, ALA - Minnesota defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman is one of the most imposing prospects at the Senior Bowl. Hageman, 6 feet 6 and 318 pounds, is a converted tight end and former basketball player who's projected as a first round draft pick. The All-Big Ten Conference selection has steamrolled blockers, rarely meeting his match except when he was pancaked a few times by Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin . Hageman ran the 40-yard dash between 4.8 and 4.9 seconds, bench presses 475 pounds and is flexible enough to operate in 3-4 or 4-3 schemes.

Retired former Ravens center Matt Birk is staying involved with the NFL. The six-time Pro Bowl center and former Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year was named the league's director of football development today. Birk spent this past year working as an appeals officer for the NFL and NFL Players Association after retiring in 2012 following the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Now the former Ravens and Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman will be involved in development of the game and administration of game-day operations.

-- From his prime vantage point Monday afternoon at Fairhope Stadium, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome could watch the kind of wide receiver he covets. The Ravens have identified a need for a reliable, versatile presence on third downs to complement the speed of Torrey Smith. All of those traits were on display as the Ravens evaluated players during the first day of Senior Bowl practice Monday. Among those players was Vanderbilt wide receiver Jordan Matthews, who showcased sharp routes and sound hands.

INDIANAPOLIS - Standing behind the blocking drills during last month's Senior Bowl, Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith watched Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin closely as he manhandled pass rushers. Whether it was because Martin was the only lineman to consistently handle Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald or because he stonewalled Stanford defensive end Trent Murphy and Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, Martin forged a lasting impression. "I think Zack Martin did an outstanding job," Smith said Thursday at the NFL scouting combine.

Most of the Ravens' top decision-makers are in Mobile, Ala., this week for the Senior Bowl. The week of practices followed by Saturday's game will give team officials and scouts an extended look at many members of the 2014 draft class. It will also give head coach John Harbaugh an opportunity to fill the handful of coaching vacancies on his staff. The Senior Bowl is like a big job fair of sorts as coaches from all levels travel there to network and to express interest in different openings.

MOBILE, Ala.  - Two players on different ends of the tight end spectrum made their respective bids for NFL job opportunities Tuesday at the Senior Bowl. North Carolina junior All-American Eric Ebron isn't eligible to play in the Senior Bowl because he declared early for the draft, but is in town this week networking with NFL teams. Ebron represents the athletic tight end now in vogue, a player with similar traits to receiving tight ends like the New Orleans Saints' Jimmy Graham and the Ravens' Dennis Pitta.

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)

10:30 a.m. [NFL Network] You want to be Mel Kiper Jr.? Watch 1 1/2 hours of practice coverage from the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. Then, at 5 p.m., watch two hours more. After that, go over your notes until bedtime. Then realize doing this every day, day after day after day, only means some jerk in the newspaper will make a lame joke about your hair.

MOBILE, Ala. -- Each day, University of Maryland linebacker Eric Barton wakes up in amazement. He is living the opportunity of a lifetime, performing in front of coaches like Tony Dungy, Mike Ditka and Dennis Green every day. The 6-foot-3, 229-pound Barton will play for the North squad today against the South in the Senior Bowl. "You read about these guys and see them on TV all the time, but it's great playing in front of them," Barton said. "But you can't become too awe-struck because there is too much intensity here.

Admittedly, when I heard the Ravens were on the verge of hiring Wisconsin running backs coach Thomas Hammock, I didn't know anything about him. The Ravens have been looking to poach a couple of young, bright assistants from the college ranks to round out their coaching staff, and Hammock fits the bill. And while I still don't know much about him, it's hard to argue with his track record at Wisconsin . Hammock, who once shared a backfield with Michael Turner at North Illinois, had been working with the Badgers backs since 2011.

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.

On the first night of the NFL draft in early May, the Ravens will be in an unfamiliar position. Accustomed to picking late in the first round during an impressive run of five consecutive postseason appearances, they will have a selection inside the first 20 picks of the draft for the first time since 2008. The Ravens, obviously, would prefer to have the same unfavorable draft slot as they had last year, when they had the last pick in the first round after winning the Super Bowl.

Two weeks ago, when addressing the state of the Ravens heading into this offseason, general manager Ozzie Newsome was vague when discussing the team's stated need of adding another target for quarterback Joe Flacco. The only clue Newsome gave was that the Ravens wanted a wide receiver or tight end “that can make a third-and-7, third-and-8 catch and run after the catch.” This week at the Senior Bowl, in an interview with the team's website , director of college scouting Joe Hortiz specified the type of player they covet -- and it sounds a lot like Anquan Boldin.

MOBILE, Ala. - Auburn cornerback Chris Davis became an Iron Bowl hero when he caught a flubbed Alabama field-goal attempt and dashed the length of the field for the game-winning touchdown against the Crimson Tide. Ever since the game-changing play during a dramatic 34-28 victory over Alabama on Dec. 3, Davis has dealt with the sudden fame from his role in toppling the two-time defending national champions. It's also increased Davis' name recognition with NFL teams as the All-Southeastern Conference second-team selection tries to improve his draft stock.

One year ago, the Ravens' coaching staff was busy preparing for Super Bowl XLVII instead of evaluating draft prospects at the Senior Bowl. It's an entirely different situation this week. Following an 8-8 season where they failed to make the playoffs for the first time in six years, the Ravens' offseason has launched much earlier than they had hoped. And the majority of the Ravens' coaches are at the Senior Bowl -- except for coach John Harbaugh as he continues to interview offensive coordinator candidates back in Baltimore -- along with general manager Ozzie Newsome and the scouting department.
