Aaron Wilson is reporting that the Ravens are bringing in Michigan safety Jabrill Peppers and Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster for official visits on Tuesday.
- Albert Breer adds that the Ravens also met with Western Michigan WR Corey Davis and Kansas State DE/OLB Jordan Willis for visits.
- According to Breer, will host Houston DE/OLB Tyus Bowser on Wednesday.
Foster has been busy in recent weeks. He has visited with the Colts, Saints, Bengals, Lions, Titans, Ravens, Chiefs and Jaguars and reportedly a meeting lined up with the Raiders before he had to cancel it.
Peppers met with the Buccaneers, Saints and Cardinals last month.
Peppers, 21, is one of the most dynamic players in this year’s draft class and played on both sides of the ball during his college career.
Earlier in the year, many felt that Peppers was likely to be a top-10 pick in the next draft. However, some are now questioning whether he’ll be able to be the same kind of player at the next level and if he would be better off playing either safety or linebacker.
During his college career at Michigan, Peppers recorded 119 tackles, 18.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, one interception and 11 pass defenses. On offense, Peppers rushed for 239 yards on 45 carries (4.5 YPC) to go along with 10 receptions for 82 yards receiving and five total touchdowns.
Foster is considered by many to not only be the best linebacker in this year’s draft class, but also one of the top defensive players overall.
According to Ian Rapoport, Foster has had his shoulder rechecked after the incident that took place at the Combine and he has full range of motion. Rapoport adds that Foster would have been at medical re-checks, regardless but he also needs to complete the full medical evaluation.
At the combine, Foster was sent home after he got into a heated altercation with a hospital worker. Foster was waiting for an extended period for his “pre-exam” when he grew increasingly impatient and began questioning a hospital worker, who didn’t appreciate Foster’s words. This led to the heated exchange.
During his college three-year career at Alabama, Foster recorded 211 tackles, 23 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, and nine pass defenses over the course of 39 games.
