Raven is a tad undersized standing at about 5’10” and 165 lbs., but he more than makes up for it with his quickness. Raven utilizes his change of direction in tandem with his excellent timing, which he was able to jump a few passes last year for an interception. The 2023’s acceleration into his top speed is solid. He shows really good hip quickness and does an excellent job flipping them and sprinting upfield staying step for step with the receiver. You can see his basketball background in full display in those situations. Raven was also a threat on special teams where he returned back one punt, and came up a few yards short last season. Ultimately, Raven will have an excellent opportunity to earn offers this summer. We really like the fluidity and the excellent top-end acceleration to the football, which should bode well for his college potential as a field corner.
