Taylor Visits Richmond While Awaiting Lockout's End

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- Tyrod Taylor was the Baltimore Ravens' sixth round draft pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, but he has yet to work out with his new team due to the NFL lockout.  Taylor made his way to Richmond on Saturday and was an honorary guest at the Flying Squirrels' game with Harrisburg.

The former Virginia Tech quarterback threw out the first pitch and spent time in the dugout during pregame.  After first-pitch, he made his way to the concourse, where a long line of fans waited for autographs and pictures.

Taylor was one of the most successful quarterbacks in Hokie history, leading the squad to three ACC titles and four bowl games, three of which were BCS games.  He now hopes to get a shot with the Ravens and will figure out where he fits into the mix once camp opens up and he gets a feel for his new team.  He says he's just waiting for the lockout to end and will be ready to compete at a high level once that time comes.  He also looks forward to learning some things from current Ravens' starting signal caller, Joe Flacco.
