Source: Ray Fisher works out for Jets
Possible nickel or slot WR / KR prospect..Sounds like UDFA
Indiana University cornerback and kick returner Ray Fisher, an under-the-radar Big Ten draft prospect, conducted a private workout for the New York Jets on Thursday, according to a source close to the program.
Fisher is also scheduled to visit the Indianapolis Colts at the end of the month, per a source.
Fisher is a converted wide receiver who ran the 40-yard dash unofficially in the low 4.3 range at his Pro Day workout.
The honorable-mention All-Big Ten conference selection also registered a 38-inch vertical leap and a 10-2 broad jump.
The 5-foot-8, 171-pounder is being evaluated as a returner and at cornerback.
Fisher played three seasons at wide receiver before making the transition to cornerback as a senior.
In 19 starts at wide receiver, the Cleveland native caught 118 passes for 1,070 yards and nine touchdowns.
He returned 18 kickoffs for 650 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 36.1 yards per return and 9.7 yards on 17 punt returns.
His kick return average led the nation and set a Big Ten single-season record.
In six starts on defense, Fisher registered 49 tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
Fisher injured his knee against Iowa, ending his season, but is healthy now.
Ray Fisher CB, Indiana
Ray Fisher: No. 7, CB/WR/PR (5-10, 185)
A former wideout who made the transition to CB as a senior. Fisher has good short-area quickness and straight-line speed but doesn't look natural as a corner. He has some ability as a PR/KR man but looked more promising as a wideout.
