Nebraska defensive end-outside linebacker Randy Gregory, one of the top pass rushers in the draft, is scheduled to visit the Ravens, according to league sources.

Gregory also met with the Ravens informally at the NFL scouting combine.

An athletic hybrid defensive player at 6-foot-5, 235 pounds, Gregory likely projects to a 3-4 outside linebacker spot in the NFL.

Gregory ran the 40-yard dash in 4.64 seconds at the combine and bench pressed 225 pounds 24 times. He had a 36.5-inch vertical leap and a 10-5 broad jump.

At his campus Pro Day workout, Gregory had a 4.30 short shuttle, 6.73 in the three-cone drill and 11.64 in the 60-yard shuttle.

"For me, even at 235 pounds, I still think I set the edge pretty well just because of my technique," Gregory said during the NFL scouting combine. "And I think I use my strength well for how much I weigh. I'll only get stronger."

Gregory was an All-Big Ten Conference selection with the Cornhuskers.

Last season, Gregory dealt with injuries and still had 50 tackles, 10 for losses, seven sacks and two blocked kicks. He missed two games with a knee injury and parts of two others.

Gregory recorded 66 tackles, 19 for losses and 10.5 sacks after transferring from Arizona Western Junior College in 2013.

"I understand where the game is going," Gregory said. "There's a lot of passing going. You need somebody to throw the ball. You somebody to block for him, so you need a left tackle. And you also need a defensive end who can rush the passer.

"I understand that aspect of the game and I'm glad that I'm in a position where I possibly could get taken early because of the fact that I'm pretty decent at being a pass rusher."
