The Ravens recently held a predraft meeting with Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas, according to a league source.

Thomas worked out for the New England Patriots on Wednesday and has also already met with the Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans.

The Ravens have said they want to acquire a quarterback with backup Tyrod Taylor entering the final year of his rookie deal. They have also met with Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for a predraft visit.

Thomas is an athletic, imposing quarterback prospect at 6-foot-6, 248 pounds. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.61 seconds at the NFL scouting combine, the fastest of any quarterback, and he also had the top vertical leap (35.5 inched), broad jump (118 inches), three-cone drill (7.05 seconds) and short shuttle (4.18 seconds).

Some NFL teams are evaluating Thomas as a potential tight end after he was ranked as the top recruit in the nation at that position coming out of high school.

He's been graded as a middle-round draft target.

He draws high marks for his size, athleticism, arm strength and quick release. He's been criticized for his inconsistent footwork and mechanics, lack of touch and deep-ball accuracy.

He threw 39 career interceptions and had 23 fumbles.

Last season, he passed for 2,907 yards, 16 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

As a junior, Thomas started every game and set the Hokies' single-season record with 3,500 yards of total offense. He led the team with 523 rushing yards.

As a sophomore, he was named second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conferece as he rushed for 11 touchdowns and passed for 3,013 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Thomas rushed for 1,359 career yards and 24 touchdowns and started 40 consecutive games with 593 completions, 9,003 yards and 53 touchdowns.
