College highlights: Correa was named All-Mountain West as a sophomore, after he recorded 12 sacks and 19 tackles for loss. His numbers as a junior actually dipped a bit, but he was still naed second-team all-conference. Correa ran the 40-yard dash in 4.69 seconds at the NFL Combine. That ranked third best among defensive ends.
Personal: The 6-foot-3, 243-pounder hails from Honolulu, Hawaii. And while he’s joining an defensive line with a certified talker (Terrell Suggs), Correa is more the quiet type. He admits he doesn’t talk much, but his motor on the field is always running. As for an NFL comparison, Correa told the Buffalo News that he patterns his game after Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews.
Analysis: The Ravens needed a pass rusher and got a guy who’s calling card is doing just that. His production in college was uneven, but he has the type of physical tools you look for in someone at that position. It seems the Ravens got their man and did a good job to get more picks out of it.
