South Florida cornerback and kick returner Chris Dunkley told The Baltimore Sun that he will visit the Ravens next week along with the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions.
Dunkley is a converted wide receiver and Florida transfer who's also had a private workout for the Miami Dolphins and Patriots and visited the San Diego Chargers and Atlanta Falcons.
"It's a childhood dream," Dunkley said in a telephone interview. "It's crazy how it's finally getting closer and closer. My destiny is starting to come true."
Dunkley played in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl all-star game and participated in an NFL regional combine.
Dunkley started 10 games at cornerback last season. At cornerback, Dunkley had 26 tackles, one sack, 1.5 tackles for losses and led the team with five pass breakups. He had one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
"I'm a real good corner," Dunkley said. "Some teams are still shocked that I switched to corner my last year in college. I have better hips than a lot...Read more
Editor's note: As Penn State free safety and cornerback Adrian Amos gets ready for the NFL draft, the former Calvert Hall standout will be sharing details about his preparations with Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson. The 6-foot, 218-pound All-Big Ten Conference honorable mention selection has been projected to be taken anywhere from the third round to the fifth round by draft analysts. Amos played in the Senior Bowl and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout. Here's his 11th entry in the series:
I worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles at Calvert Hall for their head coach, Chip Kelly. It was a great opportunity to show what I can do. I got to show them how I can move and react to the football. I just did a visit there last week.
This was a follow-up workout. It was just another opportunity. I don't look too much further into it than that.
I'm a football fan, so I've been watching coach Kelly since he was at Oregon and with the Eagles. He's a great coach....Read more
Ravens tight end Phillip Supernaw signed his $510,000 exclusive-rights free agent tender Friday.
Supernaw joined the Ravens last offseason following a previous stint with the Houston Texans.
After being off and on the Ravens' practice squad and a two-game stint with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he caught one pass for three yards, Supernaw played six games on the Ravens' active roster. He caught two passes for 27 yards.
Supernaw is the second tight end on the Ravens' depth chart behind starter Crockett Gilllmore with Owen Daniels having signed with the Denver Broncos and Dennis Pitta's future uncertain after twice dislocating and fracturing his right hip. Supernaw could be in line for an expanded role, a potential opportunity that hinges on how he performs as well as what the team does during the NFL draft and with free agents between now and the start of the regular season.
Supernaw first signed with the Texans in 2012 after going undrafted out of Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas,...Read more
Penn State safety Adrian Amos has been invited to the Ravens' local prospect day, according to sources.
The workout is Tuesday at the Ravens' training complex.
The Calvert Hall graduate had a private workout Thursday for Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly and vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz at his high school.
Amos has also visited the Eagles.
He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds at the Nittany Lions' pro day workout. That was an improvement on his 4.56 time at the NFL scouting combine.
The 6-foot, 218-pound Amos also bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times after not doing that test at the combine.
He is projected to be picked somewhere between the third and fifth rounds by draft analysts.
Delaware middle linebacker David Mackall has been invited to Tuesday's Ravens' local prospect day.
The Edmondson graduate recorded 84 tackles (3.5 for losses), one sack, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery last season.
"I need to earn a spot," Mackall said. "That's all I'm thinking about. I have a tough-minded attitude. I'm great in the locker room. I'm a team player. As a football player, you get a smart guy that can do his job.
"I'm explosive. I'm multidimensional. I can play more than one position. I can put my hand in the dirt. I can stand up as an outside linebacker. Covering isn't my strength, but I'm not bad at it and I'm working on that."
A 6-foot-3, 233-pound Maryland transfer, Mackall is a converted defensive end who played outside linebacker at Delaware in 2013 when he started 10 games.
Mackall had 75 tackles and two sacks as a junior with eight tackles for losses, an interception and a forced fumble.
He is planning on retesting at the Ravens' workout...Read more
Western Carolina safety Ace Clark has been invited to the Ravens' local prospect day Tuesday, according to NFL sources.
The Germantown graduate and former Clarksburg standout ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds at his Pro Day workout.

Clark could project to outside linebacker in the NFL.
Clark finished with 339 career tackles, including 168 solo and 6.5 for a loss, and three interceptions. He ranks second in Catamounts history in tackles.
Last season, Clark had 78 tackles, including 3.5 for losses, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and an interception against South Florida.
