Last year, the Baltimore Ravens took their left tackle of the future with Notre Dame’s Ronnie Stanley, and now they are looking for a bookend to go with Stanley after losing starting right tackle Ricky Wagner in free agency to the Detroit Lions. Losing Wanger left a big hole on the right side of their offensive line, and Baltimore hasn’t filled it in free agency. In speaking with sources, the Ravens have Alabama’s Cam Robinson as their top-rated offensive tackle, and he is one of the players they are considering drafting with their first-round pick. 

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has a reputation for loving Alabama players, and Robinson fills a big need. Sources say the team graded Robinson ahead of the other top two offensive tackles in Wisconsin’s Ryan Ramczyk and Utah’s Garett Bolles. There has been some debate about Robinson’s future NFL position and how high he should go in the draft. With the Ravens, Robinson would be the long-term right tackle to go with Stanley.

Baltimore has other positions they could consider like cornerback, running back, and wide receiver. All three of those positions are much deeper, and the Ravens could land quality players at those spots on the second day of the draft. Offensive tackle, on the other hand, is one of the weaker positions in the draft, so if the Ravens don’t take one in the first round, they could have a hard time finding a player that can step in as a replacement for Wagner. Sources say the Ravens are high on Robinson, and he is a definite contender to be their first-round pick. I currently hve Baltimore selecting Robinson in my updated mock draft.
