INDIANAPOLIS — Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in January that he expects to add at least one weapon for quarterback Joe Flacco this offseason, and Newsome and Baltimore have spent the week and weekend meeting with some of the top wide receivers and tight ends in this year’s NFL draft at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Newsome estimated Saturday morning that the Ravens met with six or seven tight end prospects Thursday and Friday.

Projected first-round picks Eric Ebron and Jace Amaro were at least two of them.

Baltimore has also met with several of the top wide receiver prospects, including Texas A&M’s Mike Evans, USC’s Marqise Lee, Florida State’s Kelvin Benjamin and Texas wide receiver Mike Davis.

Evans and Lee are projected as early-to-mid first-round picks. Benjamin, who measured in at 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds with just 4-percent body fat, is also viewed as a possible first-round pick.

Davis is widely looked at as a second- or third-round talent.
