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.

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

Collins started just 10 career games, but started seven games last season and allowed opposing quarterbacks to complete just 35 percent of passes in his direction. He had 38 tackles, three for losses and one interception.

In 2013, he allowed 10 catches for 163 yards on 18 targets.

Collins once ran down Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon and displays impressive speed and change of direction.

Collins is a former freshman All-Southeastern Conference selection who intercepted two passes that season. He had 30 tackles as a freshman.

Collins was a four-star recruit by Rivals out of Olive Branch High School in Mississippi and a first-team all-state selection.
