2018 Ravens Draft Watch: Oklahoma WR Jeff Badet

March 1, 2018
An NFL team meeting with individual players is a significant part of the draft process. These meetings can happen at the NFL Combine, pro days, the Senior Bowl or a private workout. 
For fans following the process, these meetings are sort of like poker tells for the draft, as they indicate what positions a team could be focusing on. Do teams draft players they haven't met? Yes, they do. It happens all the time, but they have often spoken to other players at that position. 

Who have the Baltimore Ravens met with so far? Check out the list at

The Ravens met with Oklahoma wide receiver Jeff Badet at the East-West Shrine game. Let's get to know him better. 

Tale of the Tape: 

Height: 6-foot-0

Weight: 180 pounds 

Strengths: Speed. Badet should run the 40-yard dash in the 4.40-4.45-second range. Badet is excellent in the open field, as he makes defenders miss. He should be a solid kick returner at the NFL level. He uses his hands well and can track balls in the air. He has the ability to make contested catches and plays with a chip on his shoulder.

Areas for Improvement: He needs to add some strength and improve his route tree.

Other Notes: Badet transferred as a graduate student from Kentucky. While at Kentucky in 2016, he was named team captain in nine of the Wildcats 13 games. That year he also ranked sixth in the SEC in kick return average with more than 22 yards per return. Throughout his college career he averaged more than 16 yards a catch.

Draft Projection: Badet will either be a late (sixth- or seventh-round) round pick or an undrafted free agent. He is the type of player -- high character/team captain -- that the Ravens like to draft late.
