Ravens met with Denarius Moore

OWINGS MILLS -- Ever since the season ended, Tennessee wide receiver Denarius Moore has boosted his draft stock into third-round to fourth-round consideration.

The latest example was his 4.37 in the 40-yard dash at his campus Pro Day workout after running a 4.43 at the NFL scouting combine to go with a 36-inch vertical leap, a 9-10 broad jump, a 1.55 10-yard split and 13 repetitions in the bench press.

Now, Moore is reaping some of the benefits of his athleticism with some face time with NFL teams. He visited the Miami Dolphins over the past two days and visits the Pittsburgh Steelers later this week.

He has already visited the New York Giants and has conducted a private workout for the Atlanta Falcons.

He also had a meeting with the Baltimore Ravens in Knoxville, Tenn., the night before his Pro Day.

The nearly 6-foot, 194-pounder caught a touchdown pass in the Texas vs. the Nation all-star game. As a senior, he caught 43 passes for nine touchdowns and 981 yards and averaged nearly 21 yards per reception. As a junior, he caught 40 passes for 540 yards and seven touchdowns.
