Utah cornerback and safety Eric Rowe is scheduled to visit the Ravens before the NFL draft, according to league sources.

Rowe also has visits with the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins and private workouts with the Houston Texans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


Rowe has excellent size at 6 feet 1, 205 pounds and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.45 seconds at the NFL scouting combine, where he also met with the Ravens. Rowe also talked with the Ravens at the Senior Bowl.

At the combine, Rowe had a 39-inch vertical leap, a 10-5 broad jump, a 6.70 three-cone drill, a 3.97 short shuttle and 19 repetitions of 225 pounds in the bench press test.

NFL teams have varied on whether Rowe projects best to cornerback or safety.

A three-year starter at free safety and a former freshman All-American, Rowe moved to cornerback for his senior year.

He had 13 pass breakups last season with one interception, 59 tackles, three for losses, a fumble recovery and a blocked field goal. He was a two-time honorable-mention All-Pac-12 selection.

Growing up in Texas, Rowe played football, basketball and track and was a member of the National Honor Society. He had 207 tackles, four forced fumbles, nine interceptions, three blocked punts and two kickoff returns for touchdowns.
