Ohio State offensive tackle Reid Fragel has drawn a lot of interest from the Ravens, according to sources.

Fragel has visited the New England Patriots, New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fragel is a 6-foot-8, 308-pound converted tight end who started every game at right offensive tackle as a senior and earned honorable-mention All-Big Ten Conference honors.

At the NFL scouting combine, Fragel ran the 40-yard dash in 5.09 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 33 times. He registered a 30-inch vertical leap, a 9-5 broad jump, a 4.68 20-yard shuttle and a 7.62 three-cone drill. 

Fragel was a blocking tight end previously, catching five passes for 64 yards as a junior and nine passes for 121 yards and a touchdown as a sophomore.

The Detroit native has maintained his athleticism and mobility after gaining strength and bulk to grow into the offensive tackle position.

Fragel has drawn high marks from draft analysts for his aggressiveness, movement and improving technique. He's regarded as an ascending draft prospect.
