Teams in search of an inside linebacker in next month's draft will immediately look to Alabama's Rolando McClain as an option in the first round and guys like Donald Butler, Patrick Angerer and Brandon Spikes as second and third-round possibilities.
One guy who won't come off the board quite that early is Arizona's Vuna Tuihalamaka, but that doesn't mean the 6-foot-2, 230-pound 'backer isn't in demand.
And you can count the Ravens as one of the teams that are looking at the former Wildcat.
Tuihalamaka came to Owings Mills to visit with the Ravens on Monday, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
The 23-year-old Tuihalamaka now has visited with five teams.
A former JuCo All-American, Tuihalamaka transferred to Arizona prior to his junior year. He started all 13 games in his senior season, posting 72 tackles, 5 1/2 tackles for losses and an interception.
Tuihalamaka caught the eye of a number of teams at his Pro Day, where he ran impressive official times of 4.65 and 4.68 in the 40.
Known as a physical guy who likes to get his nose dirty, Tuihalamaka would play on the inside in a 3-4 defense. The Ravens have a number of inside backers who dealt with injury issues last season (Brendon Ayanbadejo, Tavares Gooden, Jason Phillips) and might be looking to add more depth at the position.
Tuihalamaka is projected as a mid to late-round pick and could be an option for the Ravens with one of their two fifth-round picks or their sixth-round selection.
