OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Pitt defensive end Jabaal Sheard is visiting the Baltimore Ravens today, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
Sheard met with the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday.
Sheard is going to Indianapolis this weekend for a combine recheck of his surgically repaired elbow.
Sheard is graded as a late first-round or early second-round target.
The 6-foot-3, 264-pounder was named Big East Defensive Player of the Year last season, recording 52 tackles, 14 1/2 for losses, nine sacks and four forced fumbles.
He shined even though fellow defensive end standout Greg Romeus was out for most of the season with injuries.
As a junior, he posted 42 tackles, 10 1/2 for losses, five sacks and 12 quarterback hurries.
As a sophomore, he registered 45 tackles, 10 1/2 for losses, 5 1/2 sacks and 11 quarterback hurries.
Sheard offers positional flexibility as a potential 4-3 end or a 3-4 outside linebacker.
He was arrested last summer for felony aggravated assault and resisting arrest after an altercation in a bar where he threw a man through a glass door. He pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, was ordered to apologize and pay medical bills. He was suspended from the team for two weeks as well as internal discipline.
