Draft Scout Michael Campanaro News
05/12/14 - Campanaro patterns his game after NFL slot wide receivers like the Denver Broncos' Wes Welker, the New England Patriots' Danny Amendola and the Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown. Campanaro, though, had superior workout numbers to Welker and Amendola from when they entered the NFL. Campanaro ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds at the NFL scouting combine and had a 39-inch vertical leap, a 10-2 broad jump, a 6.77 three-cone drill and bench pressed 225 pounds 20 times. "I'm always studying those guys and just learning from different things they do," Campanaro said. "Those guys are great competitors. You can study their game and take things from their game and incorporate them into yours." - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - As former Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro left the Ravens' offices in April after auditioning for coaches at their annual local prospects workout, he had a strong gut feeling that it wouldn't be his last time at team headquarters. Campanaro was correct in his assessment. The Ravens traded back into the seventh round Saturday to acquire him, sending their 2015 sixth-round pick to the Cleveland Browns to draft the River Hill graduate with the 218th overall selection. "I felt like I got a great vibe from some of the coaches and definitely felt comfortable just being there, being from the area," said Campanaro, who grew up in Clarksville. "I definitely thought Baltimore was a potential landing spot for me entering the draft."
During his workout for the Ravens, Campanaro was forced to take nearly every snap when another player pulled a muscle. That helped convince Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta about Campanaro being a worthy investment for a trade. "I think he's shifty, I think he's tough, I think he's very quick," DeCosta said. "He plays the slot, which is kind of a niche position and does that very, very well. He's a good run-after-catch guy. He can catch punts. He should have a chance to contribute. Mike basically took every single rep during that workout, and it was impressive. In my mind, it tipped the scales to him being a good prospect for us. "We thought it was a good trade for us based on the board and the feelings we had about Mike and it's kind of a no-brainer. There's a need for a guy like him. He has a unique skill set. We think he brings something different to the team and we think he can compete." - The Sports Xchange
