The Ravens are expected to try to bolster the wide receiver position through the draft and could use an influx of speed outside after Torrey Smith signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the San Francisco 49ers this offseason.

At the Hurricanes' Pro Day workout, Dorsett ran the 40-yard dash in 4.29 and 4.27 seconds. He had a 38-inch vertical leap, a 10-9 broad jump, a 4.03 short shuttle and a 6.85 three-cone drill.

The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder was a second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection.
