Ravens to host Sears, others

OWINGS MILLS -- University of Tennessee offensive tackle Arron Sears will visit the Baltimore Ravens' training complex Wednesday as one of the defending AFC North champions' Top 30 visits, according to his agent. Sears is a potential first-round pick who has demonstrated the versatility to play offensive guard or tackle in the NFL. Ravens Insider first reported Sears' visit last week.

He has played every position on the line except for center.
The 6-foot-3 1/2, 319-pounder played left tackle as a senior and won the Jacobs Award as the conference's top blocker. Sears has a reputation for having sound technique and for being decicated to his conditioning.
Because of his size, Sears would likely project best at offensive guard.
Sears is represented by Impact Sports. "I'm really getting the sense that most of the 32 teams are looking at me at the guard position because of my frame and being able to play down inside at the guard position," Sears told reporters at the NFL scouting combine.
Meanwhile, agent Sean Kiernan indicated that the Ravens plan to bring in two of his agency's other clients, Notre Dame outside linebacker/defensive end Victor Abiamiri and Ohio State fullback Stan White, on April 17 for the Ravens' local prospects day. Those visits from the two former Gilman standouts won't count against the team's top 30 visits.
Sears has also scheduled visits to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, St. Lous Rams, Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings.
The Ravens are also scheduled to host University of Houston quarterback Kevin Kolb this week. It will be Kolb's first visit. His next visit is with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Kolb is competing with Stanford's Trent Edwards to be the third quarterback drafted after LSU's JaMarcus Russell and Notre Dame's Brady Quinn. The Ravens are looking for a promising developmental quarterback to groom behind veteran starter Steve McNair, who turned 34 after the season.
