Offensive Line: Overall Grade B-
The offensive linemen are going to get individual grades. Much like the wide receiver position there are good grades and bad grades to give out. Only the starters will receive a grade with the exception of Vlad Ducasse.
Ronnie Stanley: B
The Ravens rookie tackle exceeded my expectations. The sixth overall pick showed that he belonged on the big stage. What Stanley did really well, was taking on the bull rush from defensive ends and linebackers. He absorbed the rush and for the most part kept the pass rushers out of the play. Stanley had ups and downs. He missed several games with an injury. When we grade Stanley’s performance that has to be taken into account.
Alex Lewis: A-
I was very impressed with Alex Lewis. I would argue that he was the most consistent player on the entire team before getting hurt against the Browns. Lewis is a solid run blocker and a surprisingly reliable pass protector. Lewis could be a long-term starter for the Ravens next to Ronnie Stanley. He also proved that he could hold his own at the right tackle position.
Jeremy Zuttah C
I think the Ravens need to find a better option at the center position. Zuttah had some struggles this season. He has always been a little on the undersized scale, this season it really started to catch up to him. There have been worse performances by a Ravens center but it wasn’t pretty this season.
Marshall Yanda: A
The Ravens were really lucky that they had Marshall Yanda when Alex Lewis went down. Yanda moved over from the right guard position to left guard. Yanda’s versatility and toughness was on full display this season.
Rick Wagner: B-
Rick Wagner is not a bad right tackle but he is a right tackle for a reason. He has trouble with speed off the edge and the Ravens could consider an upgrade at the right tackle position. Wagner is usually solid overall.
Vlad Ducasse: C
Ducasse got extended playing time at right guard. It was not a thrilling performance but it was solid enough to prevent disaster.
