Of all the Baltimore Ravens’ positional strengths in 2014, offensive line was perhaps their greatest. And most underrated (as o-lines often are).
After a horrid 2013 performance, a pair of underrated moves and a return to health solidified this unit as one of the very best in the NFL, paving the way for both Joe Flacco and Justin Forsett’s finest statistical seasons.
With a switch from o-line guru Gary Kubiak to Marc Trestman as the coordinator of the offense, the Ravens aren’t expected to reinvent the wheel here. This team rightfully wants to retain the core of their scheme from last season and continue to build upon that success.
The Ravens will continue to pound the rock and beat opposing defenses into submission, lulling secondaries to sleep with short passes before killing them with the deep ball.
The Ravens rightfully aren’t going to do a major overhaul on the offensive line this season, and they don’t need to. But they have made a few moves that promise to build upon last season and prepare for an uncertain future as well. Let’s take a look at those moves and how the 2015 Baltimore Ravens roster shakes out on paper.
