As we await Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome’s arrival, several of the draft’s wide receiver prospects have completed their media responsibilities.

One intriguing option, who could be available to the Ravens in the middle-to-late rounds, is Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill.

Playing in the Yellow Jackets’ run-oriented offense, Hill’s stats certainly don’t stand out as he caught 28 passes for 820 yards. But his size -- 6 feet 6, 206 pounds -- and his speed -- he believes he can run a 4.3 40-yard dash -- will certainly garner some attention.

Hill, who is banking on a big combine to improve his draft status, will meet with Ravens officials this week.

Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd also said he’s scheduled to have a formal meeting with Ravens officials tonight. Floyd, who patterns his game after Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald's, is expected to go around the middle of the first round, but the Ravens figure to be interested if he falls to the 29th pick.
