INDIANAPOLIS - Tavon Austin isn't the only wide receiver from Baltimore expecting to fare well when receivers go through on-field workouts Sunday in Indianapolis.
Corey Fuller's fresh off a breakout senior season at Virginia Tech, emerging as a possible third or fourth round selection after catching 43 passes for 815 yards and six touchdowns while averaging 19 yards per catch.
He's considered to still be raw in terms of both his route-running and his technique, but he's an explosive, fluid athlete who said he's expecting to run the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds or faster Sunday.
Fuller said Friday afternoon that he was scheduled to meet with the Ravens later in the day after also meeting with the team at the East-West Shrine Game in January.
Baltimore could look to add a young receiver through the draft even if it decides to not part ways with veteran Anquan Boldin.
Fuller was a standout in track at Kansas before transferring to Virginia Tech to play football in 2010. He saw only minimal playing time as a junior in 2011, but he led the Hokies in touchdown catches this past season and ranked second on the team in both catches and receiving yards.
Fuller graduated from Woodlawn High School in Baltimore in 2007. He played quarterback in high school.
