2018 Senior Bowl: Prospects Ravens could be keeping an eye on
The Senior Bowl is the unoffical start to the draft process.
Taking place on Saturday, January 27 in the Mobile, Alabama, it will be the first time Ravens talent evaluators get an up close and personal view at the 2018 draft talent. And it just so happens that the team has drafted more talent from the Senior Bowl than any other team since 2010.
Let's take a look at players the organization could and have taken a look at this week.
