LSU corner Jalen Collins visited the Ravens, sources say

LSU cornerback Jalen Collins has visited the Ravens, according to sources.

Collins is one of the top cornerbacks in the draft, but is coming off foot surgery performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C. to repair a fracture and is expected to be ready for minicamps. Collins was sidelined at the Tigers' Pro Day workout.


Collins is a big cornerback at 6-foot-1, 199 pounds.

He declared early for the draft following his junior season after leading the team with 10 passes defended last season.


At the NFL scouting combine, Collins ran the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds and had a 36-inch vertical leap.
