Colorado State LB Shaquil Barrett participated in Ravens' local prospect day

Colorado State linebacker Shaquil Barrett participated in the Ravens' local prospect day Monday, according to a league source.

Barrett is graded anywhere from the fifth round to the seventh round by draft analysts.


Barrett had 246 career tackles at Colorado State with 18 sacks, 32.5 tackles for losses, three interceptions, seven forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and six pass deflections.

He was named the Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Year last season, won Defensive Most Valuable Player honors in the New Mexico Bowl and played in the East-West Shrine all-star game.


Last season, Barrett had 80 tackles, 12 sacks, 20.5 tackles for losses, three blocked kicks, four forced fumbles and one interception.

He transferred to Colorado State as a freshman when Nebraska-Omaha disbanded its football program.

At his campus Pro Day workout, the 6-foot-3, 250-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.71 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 16 times with a 29-inch vertical leap and a 9-5 broad jump.

Barrett played his first two high school seasons at Baltimore City College before transferring to Boys Town in Nebraska where he was an all-state defensive lineman and state wresting champion. He had a dozen sacks and five blocked kicks as a senior and was a member of the National Honor Society.
