The Ravens own a glaring need at the receiver position. They signed veteran Seth Roberts to a corps of Willie Snead, Chris Moore, and 2018 draft picks Jordan Lasley and Jaleel Scott. Baltimore currently doesn’t have a headliner in the group. Could the new Baltimore bass use a top pick to secure a potential game-breaker for a ground-focused offense?

At 6-foot-3, Metcalf owns the physical trait scouts drool over, displaying a rare combo of speed and size. NFL.com draft analyst Lance Zierlein compared Metcalf’s ability to the on-field traits of Josh Gordon.

The Ravens, who could look to snag the receiver with the No. 22 overall pick in the first round, might want to get a closer look at Metcalf due to injury concerns. The 21-year-old suffered a season-ending neck injury that relegated him to seven games. Metcalf also only played two games in 2016, his first at Ole Miss, due to a foot injury.

Other visits we are tracking Monday:

1. The Miami Dolphins, who own the No. 13 pick, are bringing in Florida offensive lineman Jawaan Taylor and Michigan linebacker Devin Bush for visits, per Rapoport.

2. Ohio State receiver Parris Campbell is visiting with the Cincinnati Bengals, Rapoport reported.
