2. Rick Wagner
The Ravens asked a lot from their fifth round pick in the 2013 Draft. They had Rick Wagner become the starting right tackle in his second season. Since then he has only missed three starts. There is a reason that Wagner is not a left tackle. However, he is a serviceable player on the right side. When the Ravens lost Michael Oher, they needed an affordable option to fill his shoes. Wagner has taken the job and hasn’t looked back.
The Ravens have made a habit of making players that other teams passed up into role filling picks. Wagner has outproduced what a fifth round pick is supposed to do. Wagner is never going to break the bank, but he will have a job in the NFL for a while. Decent right tackles are hard to find these days.
The Ravens find talent in the trenches better than most teams. It is the area that Newsome is most comfortable drafting. This is why Baltimore always has an answer to their problems along the line of scrimmage.
