A look at some notable running back and wide receiver performances from Sunday's combine workout

The Ravens are in the market for both a running back and a wide receiver.

Here are how some of the players Baltimore may be interested in fared during on-field workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine Sunday:

- Texas A&M Mike Evans had a formal meeting with the Ravens in Indianapolis, but he may have ensured Sunday that he will be off the board well before Baltimore picks at No. 17 in May. One of the primary question marks about Evans has been his speed. But at 6-foot-5, 231 pounds, he ran the 40-yard dash in a very solid 4.53 seconds.

- Another potential Ravens first-round target, USC wide receiver Marqise Lee, didn't fare as well. His time (4.52) was better than Evans', but he's also five inches shorter than Evans and 39 pounds lighter. He remains a legitimate option for Baltimore, though, especially considering that he appears capable of helping in the slot.

- Along the lines of receivers that could help in the slot, Oregon State's Brandin Cooks had the fastest 40-yard dash time among wide receivers (4.33). That time may have put him even more in the mix to be a first-round pick come April.

- Wake Forest slot receiver Michael Campanaro, a Clarksville native, also helped himself Sunday. He ran a solid 4.46 40. He did 20 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, which was tied for fourth-most among receivers. He also had a 39-inch vertical jump and was among the leaders in the 60-yard shuttle.

- Other notable wide receiver 40 times include Ole Miss' Donte Moncrief, whose time (4.40) was tied for third among receivers. What makes that more impressive is that he is 6-foot-2, 221 pounds. projects him to go in the third or fourth round.

- As far as other potential Ravens targets, Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews ran a solid 4.46 40. LSU's Jarvis Landry had the slowest time among receivers (4.77), but the slow time was reportedly a result of him hurting his leg during his run.

- In terms of running backs that could be of interest to Baltimore, Towson's Terrance West ran the third-fastest 40-yard dash (4.54) among running backs 220 pounds or heavier. Boston College's Andre Williams, who is 230 pounds, ran a solid 4.56.

- Meanwhile, LSU's Jeremy Hill ran an average time (4.66), and Western Kentucky's Antonio Andrews, a potential late round Ravens target, ran one of the slowest times among running backs (4.82).

- Ten running backs ran the 40 in 4.49 seconds or faster, including Kent State's Dri Archer (4.26) and former Georgia Southern quarterback and running back Jerick McKinnon (4.41). McKinnon, who worked out as a running back, also did the most reps of 225 pounds on the bench press among running backs (32), had the second-best broad jump among running backs and had the second-best vertical jump (40.5) inches. McKinnon, who is 5-foot-9, 209 pounds, ran for 1,817 yards as an option quarterback in 2012. He played both quarterback and running back in 2013.

- Heisman trophy finalist Tre Mason from Auburn posted a respectable time in the 40 (4.50) and was among the top performers in the running back group in both the vertical jump and broad jump.
