According to Jamison Hensley, the Ravens have been showing “increasing interest” in Alabama RB Josh Jacobs.
Hensley adds that Ravens HC John Harbaugh has said they could add a playmaking back in this year’s draft and Baltimore is planning to be one of the most committed teams to the run this season.
It’s worth mentioning that the Ravens signed Mark Ingram in free agency, but there’s at least a chance they could add another running back in the draft.
Peter King reported earlier in the week that the Eagles, Colts and Raiders are “quite interested” in Jacobs.
Jacobs visited with the Colts, Eagles and Ravens over the past few weeks.
Jacobs, 5-10, 216 lb, is widely viewed by draft analysts as the top running back prospect in this year’s draft class. He could end up being a first-round pick on Thursday.
During his three-year college career, Jacobs rushed for 1,491 yards on 251 carries (5.9 YPC) to go along with 48 receptions for 571 yards receiving and 21 total touchdowns over the course of 40 games. He also totaled 494 kick return yards and 27 punt return yards and two total touchdowns.
