    Ozzie says, if the season started today, KO WOULD BE THE LEFT TACKLE!



    Count me among the pleasantly shocked...

    Baltimore Ravens ‏@Ravens 1m
    Ozzie says that Kelechi Osemele could get a chance at LT, and that he'd probably get that shot if the season started today.
    I figured it'd be Oher by default, but sounds like maybe he FINALLY realizes Oher isn't a LT.

    I still rather find a longterm solution at LT and have KO dominate as a guard.

    It is musical chairs with the LT position on this team every year. Time to find a longterm solution.

    I hope that the Ravens won't embark on another two year experiment before they realize that KO isn't a LT either.

    AGREE. Iirc, KO and one of his college coaches both say he is NOT a T. IMHO, LT is a key posittion this offseason.

    Long term solution would be nice. When (in response to a question about a LT solution) DeCosta ran off a list of OTs and didn't mention Armstead at all, until the original questioner came back with "...and Armstead?", and then DeCosta add a couple of generic comments about Armstead. I'm not fooled...

    Long presser. Around 40 minutes so far.

    Note the word "could" and the phrase "if the season started today".

    Ozzie is not going to tip his hat and he's not doing it here. This is GM speak for an open competition at LT.

    Prescident was Yanda at RT when he was one of the best (if not the best) G in the game.

    JO still has us spoiled enough years later that he has been voted into the HOF.

    I too don't want to see KO have to swing outside but I know it is in one of the myriad plans of Ozzie... the LT hole is filled, other teams can't project our picks based on need, and we here know enough to know part of this could easily be smoke and mirrors for the draft and for McK's price tag.

    They don't let information out like this without a purpose....

    Baldinger is one of the better connected NFL analysts out there, He has a ton of connections in coaching circles, including Baltimores newest coach Juan Castillo. Castillo is widely considered to be the best in the league at developing offensive line talent and turning lineman into stars. According to Brian Baldinger, Castillo believes Kelechi Osemele is the future of the left tackle position in Baltimore. Left Tackle.

    For months now I've been posting that KO is going to get a chance to win that LT Harbaugh has always looked at all his options. There is no reason for him not to at least try it.

    Hes is saying that theyre not set with Oher though and handing him the position (like a recent thread suggested). Saying competition and that hed likely win said competition, should not be taken as a vote of confidence for Oher, even if "GM speak" its opening it up. Hes also not the coach though, and Harbs says who's going to play what not Ozzie.

    youll see how serious he is by who we draft. We go G before T and theres probably more truth to it.

    Curious if the Ravens would be interested in Brandon Albert during the draft when the pressure is on the Chiefs to trade an unhappy player.

    OT: Is KO better than Oher on the left side. I don't think they let it get to that point and bring a player in (McKinnie and draft someone).

    Isn't this the infamous "Liar's Lunch"?

    and jsut say NO to Brandon Albert. Mild upgrade over Oher, but compensation in terms of both picks and his contract would not follow that valuation. Pass. I'd rather draft a COUPLE of players on this list:
    Chris Faulk
    Brennan williams
    David Quessenberry
    Luke Marquadt
    Xavier Nixon
