Before we watch some of the biggest stars and hidden gems in this year's draft class show off their athleticism, let's first reflect on some current Ravens' performances:

Looking back at current Ravens' past appearances at the NFL Scouting Combine over the years.

2023 – WR Zay Flowers

The weigh-in was paramount for Flowers given his size, and he checked the boxes at 5-foot-9 and (more importantly) 182 pounds. Flowers added about 13 pounds before the draft and looked the part. He then proved it on the field, running the 40-yard dash at 4.42 seconds. It's a shame Flowers didn't do the three-cone drill because with his special change of direction skills and explosion, he could have put on a show.

2023 – LB Trenton Simpson

Simpson blew the doors off the 40-yard dash with a 4.43 time – second fastest among all linebackers. The only other Combine drill he did was bench press. His 25 reps were tied for fourth most at his position. Simpson's Next Gen Stats athleticism score of 86 was the third best among linebackers at the Combine.

2022 – S Kyle Hamilton

The expectations were extremely high for Hamilton after the athleticism he showed on tape at Notre Dame. He measured in even bigger than some thought at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds. Then Hamilton posted a strong 38-inch vertical jump and 10'11" broad jump. However, his 40-yard dash time of 4.59 seconds was slower than expected, which left mixed results for a player many had projected to be a top-five pick, and perhaps contributed to him sliding to No. 14.

2022 – OLB David Ojabo

Ojabo tore his Achilles at his Michigan Pro Day, but he had fortunately already had a strong showing at the Combine. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.64 seconds that displayed his superb explosion.

2021 – WR Rashod Bateman

The 2021 Combine was cancelled, so evaluators were forced to rely on Pro Day results. Bateman turned in a 4.39 40-yard dash, which hushed concerns about his deep speed. Bateman's weigh-in created buzz, as at 190 pounds he seemed lighter than previous years. Afterward, Bateman never played over 200 pounds.

2021 – OLB Odafe Oweh

Oweh blew up his Penn State Pro Day with one of the most impressive performances in Pro Day history. His 40-yard dash of 4.36 seconds at 6-foot-5, 257 pounds was eye-popping. Oweh also showed his explosiveness with a 39.5-inch vertical jump and a broad jump of 11 feet, 2 inches. That stamped Oweh as one of the biggest athletic "freaks" in the draft.

2021 – DB Brandon Stephens

As a converted running back, Stephens had a lot to prove at his pro day. Stephens did just that with a 40-yard dash of 4.43 seconds and 38-inch vertical, all while weighing in at 213 pounds. Stephens also put up 19 bench press reps, which would have been the fourth-most of any cornerback.

2021 – G Ben Cleveland

Cleveland's sheer size makes him stand out even amongst offensive lineman. But his 40-yard dash time of 5.05 seconds would have been the third-fastest among his class of guards. Cleveland's 30 bench press reps were also top 10 at his position.

2020 – LB Patrick Queen

Queen showed off his sideline-to-sideline speed with a 40-yard dash in a blazing 4.50 seconds – the fourth-best time among linebackers. Queen also had a strong showing in the other drills he participated in, posting the 14th-best bench press, 11th-best vertical jump and 8th-best broad jump marks at his position.

2020 – DL Justin Madubuike

Madubuike was one of the standouts of the defensive linemen with a 40-yard dash in 4.83 seconds and 31 bench press reps that were the fourth-most at his position. He showed his great feet for a 300-pounder with a three-cone drill in 7.37 seconds. Madubuike left with some first-round buzz.

2020 – WR Devin Duvernay

A high school track star in Texas, Duvernay delivered on his speedy reputation with a 40-yard dash time of 4.39 seconds – a top-10 performance among players at any position. That helped the strong-handed wideout who measured in at 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds.

2019 – RB Justice Hill

Hill was another Combine star, as he was the fastest running back in his class with a 40-yard dash of 4.40 seconds. He also took first place in the vertical jump (40 inches), and broad jump (10 feet, 10 inches).

2018 – QB Lamar Jackson

Jackson did not participate in any of the field drills in Indianapolis, choosing only to throw as he continued to make a statement that he was a quarterback only. The decision made a lot of waves at the time, but evaluators already knew he was fast. Jackson later said a scout for the San Diego Chargers asked if he was going to work out as a wide receiver. The Ravens only saw him as a quarterback.

2018 – TE Mark Andrews

Andrews tied former Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst for the third-fastest 40-yard dash time among tight ends (4.67 seconds). Hurst finished fourth in the broad jump, ninth in vertical and sixth in the shuttle while Andrews came just inside the top 10 in each category. Andrews had 17 bench press reps while Hurst did not participate in the drill.

2017 – S Marcus Williams

Never question whether Williams can elevate. He posted the third-highest vertical jump of any safety in Combine history (43.5 inches). Forty-four inches is the all-time highest, so he wasn't far off the leaders. Williams also ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 seconds.

2017 – CB Marlon Humphrey

A star track athlete at Alabama, Humphrey not surprisingly lit up the Combine. He posted a 4.41 in the 40-yard dash, which tied for the seventh-fastest among defensive backs and was faster than all but four wide receivers. He was also among his position group's top performers at the broad jump (10 feet, five inches) and three-cone drill (6.75 seconds).

2016 – OT Ronnie Stanley

Stanley did not have the strongest Combine performance and was still drafted by the Ravens sixth overall. Stanley fell outside of the top 15 offensive tackles in the 40-yard dash (5.20 seconds), three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle. He did not do the bench press. Stanley has since become arguably the league's best left tackle and went to his first Pro Bowl this year.
