Benjamin is projected as a potential first-round pick. The Ravens pick at No. 17, although NFL Media analysts Daniel Jeremiah, Charles Davis and Bucky Brooks project in their mock drafts that Benjamin will be chosen no earlier than No. 23 to the Kansas City Chiefs. One club that could be keenly interested to know whether the Ravens are targeting a receiver is the Jets, who draft one pick later at No. 18 and have an even clearer need for pass-catching help. A Jets rival will be watching this situation closely, too -- the Patriots also have held a private workout with Benjamin.
Harbaugh reportedly has hinted at the club's need to address its backup-quarterback situation behind starter Joe Flacco. Garoppolo, who emerged as one of the draft's most intriguing quarterback prospects after strong performances at the East-West Shrine Game, the Reese's Senior Bowl, and the NFL Scouting Combine, worked out privately with the San Francisco 49ers and Houston Texans at his pro day.
