Offensive Linemen (9)

In: Marshal Yanda, Kelechi Osemele, Eugene Monroe, Jeremy Zuttah, Rick Wagner, Ryan Jensen, James Hurst, John Urschel, Robert Myers

Out: Kaleb Johnson, Blaine Causell, Nick Easton, Jah Reid

Outside of 2010, the Ravens have carried nine offensive linemen on their active roster in each of the past seven seasons.  Don’t expect that to change this year either.

The starting lineup of Yanda, Osemele, Monroe, Zuttah, and Wagner is set in stone, barring injury.  The real battle is taking place behind them.

The big question boils down to whether or not the Ravens will give Reid another shot.  He has had an up and down offseason, but his horrible performance against the Redskins might have cost him his job.

Myers is another sticking point.  The Ravens don’t generally cut their draft picks so quickly, and I don’t think they will.  They like Myers as a developmental prospect, so unless they stash him on I.R., he will probably stick around.

The Ravens also appear to really like Jensen and his versatility, so he should be safe for another year if he doesn’t revert to I.R. with his latest head injury.
