Missouri pass rusher Shane Ray to visit Ravens, sources say

Missouri's Shane Ray had 13.5 sacks this past season, including this one against South Dakota State quarterback Jacob Menage during a game in August.

The Ravens have scheduled a visit with Missouri outside linebacker Shane Ray, according to league sources.

The Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year also met with the Ravens at the NFL scouting combine.


Ray is one of the top pass rushers in the NFL draft. As a defensive end in college, he had 13.5 sacks and 20.5 tackles for loss last season.

He also has visits scheduled with several other NFL teams, including the Atlanta Falcons, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans.


Ray didn't work out at the combine due to a foot injury, but he is scheduled to run Thursday at his campus Pro Day workout.

The 6-foot-3, 245-pound Ray has tested out well in the past, including times of 4.44 seconds in the 40-yard dash, a 40-inch vertical leap and bench pressing over 400 pounds.

Ray's father, Wendell Ray, was a Minnesota Vikings fifth-round draft pick in 1981.
