With the legal uncertainty surrounding Ray Rice at the moment after video surfaced of a casino “incident” with his fiance, the Baltimore Ravens may seek help in the backfield in the upcoming NFL Draft in May, and they may look to fill that need with a former Georgia Bulldogs star that showed the responsibility to reinvigorate his collegiate career after a letdown, Isaiah Crowell.
Crowell, the 2011 SEC freshman of the year, recently disclosed that the Ravens were among three teams–including the Browns and Raiders–that have shown the most interest in acquiring his services since the NFL Scouting Combine.
“I have talked with the Browns and the Raiders, and the Ravens I have talked to several times,” Crowell said.
Unfortunately, this past Tuesday, Crowell wasn’t allowed to impress more teams at his Pro Day for Alabama State as inclement weather put a damper on his hopes, but it still says something this his Combine performance alone is turning heads of at least three teams.
Following that award-winning 2011 season, Crowell was kicked off the Georgia football team for multiple violations, but was able to get himself back together with the Hornets of Alabama State at the FCS level.
