The Ravens have some holes to fill on defense, especially at inside linebacker, and The Sun was reporting Sunday that they might have some interest in one from Howard.

The Sun reported that the Ravens might be looking at Howard linebacker Keith Pough, who's been a very solid player for a much improved Bison team. Pough was picked as the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference's Defensive Player of the Year. NFL.com said he ended the season with 72 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks and four passes broken up.

He's a linebacker who runs down plays all over the field, the kind of guy the Ravens would like to have at inside linebacker. During his younger days, Ray Lewis was especially good at chasing players down all over the place, something that made him so hard to defend at times.

The Sun said he was a four-year starter who ended up with 340 career tackles with 71 for losses, and that he grew up as a Ravens' fan.
