University of Richmond safety Cooper Taylor visited the Ravens, according to a source.

Taylor, who played in the East-West Shrine Game, has also visited the Buffalo Bills, Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks. He appears to be rising on draft boards.

The 6-foot-4, 228-pound Georgia Tech transfer ran the 40-yard dash in 4.49 and 4.58 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout for 20 NFL teams. He recorded a 36-inch vertical leap, a 10-7 broad jump, a 4.29 short shuttle a 6.96 three-cone drill and bench pressed 225 pounds 23 times.

Taylor started at Georgia Tech before transferring to Richmond where he was a first-team All-FSC selection as a senior with 78 tackles, five for losses, four interceptions, 1 1/2 sacks, three forced fumbles and nine pass deflections.

Taylor chose Georgia Tech over Mississippi State, Virginia and Duke. His father, Jim Bob Taylor, played for the Baltimore Colts and Georgia Tech.
