    Re: LT Prospects



    Mike Mayock is now saying that 6 OTs could be picked in round 1 with Watson and Pugh getting picked at the botom of the round and Flucker a little higher than that. To me that says two things: 1) we could take one of those guys if we are interested but 2) with 6 OTs being picked other players will drop to us that we are more interested in.

    Which means they would do anything they could to keep Oher at RT. If glee don't have a legit LT this year you could see a left side of KO and Jah Reid.

    Any thoughts on Armstead with our natural 2nd?

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    I like him alot, i dont think he gets to 62 but i think he's an option if we trade down from 32. He's gonna have to get stronger in his lower body and i wouldnt feel great about him playing as a rookie but he has all the tools imo.

    Re: LT Prospects

    At one time I liked Brennan Williams a lot, but he's strictly RT. Not sure I want us penciled into that.

    LT developmental guys that intrigue me...

    Chris Faulk
    Quessenberry
    Marquardt
    Rogers Gaines
    Aboushi
    Bakhtiari
    Xavier Nixon?

    Terron Armstead is the guy I'd like most if we're not talking 1st round, but as said above, he's not likely to fall all the way down to our natural 2nd rounder. Just get a feeling someone else will overvalue him.

    Yep in round 2 you'd look at Armstead or Bakhtiari with Bakhtiari being more ready but both would be developmental. And both could be gone by the time we pick. Honestly I would put Watson and Pugh here too but it sounds like they are going possibly in round 1.

    Or, if the Ravens decide the BPA in the draft is a guard, they could slide KO out to LT and insert a guard better than Jah Reid into that LT spot. If they had a shot at taking Justin Pugh or Kyle Long, they might go that direction.

    Dallas Thomas is a mid-round guy I like a lot that hasn't been mentioned in this thread. Nice pass protection pedigree at Tennessee and has the ability to play guard as well (started at LG every game his senior year).

    I fear there's not going to be much value at the position in this year's draft, however. There aren't 6 1st-round talent tackles this year, and it's entirely possible 6 get taken. That'll dilute the value of a tackle with later picks, most likely.

    The Ravens have displayed a lot of interest in Ohio State offensive tackle Reid Fragel, per a source.
    This weekend I'm going to watch and in many cases re-watch the OTs to see which mid-round guys make me comfortable.

    I haven't watched any Ohio State stuff, but Fragel's Combine numbers were pretty good. His arm length is quite short for a tackle, though--33" flat (1/2" shorter than Oher). The scouting reports I've read seem to have him pegged as a RT only prospect with good athleticism for a zone-blocking scheme, but a lot of technique issues.

    I continue to think that the Ravens' apparent interest in RT-only type guys signals a comfort with Oher or Osemele on the blind side, FWIW.

    How do you guys feel about Jordan Mills? I think he could be a pretty interesting candidate as a mid-round LT prospect.

    Been hearing good things about him, some of the draft guys i follow on twitter feel like he has a chance as a LT, gotta study him and Fragel now.

    He's on the watch list.
    Someone I follow wrote a detailed piece of him about two weeks ago.
    I can't remember shortcomings he described. Need to dig it up.

    Re: LT Prospects

    Greg Cosell is on tape saying that he likes Pugh at left tackle. He also imagines that different teams have Pugh slotted at tackle, left or right, and guard. Finally he says that if Pugh is thought of by a team as a viable left tackle then he goes off the board at the end of round 1. If he's viewed as a guard, he'll last till round 2.

    First Mayock and now Coselll are saying Pugh may go at the end of round one. Mayock's new Big Board has Pugh as his 24th best player.


    I'm looking at YOU Ozzie. I'm not seeing other teams at the end of the round looking for a left tackle like the Ravens are looking and Cosell knows Ozzie.
