Baltimore Ravens: 3 rookies who could miss out on the 53-man roster
After selecting a potential Week 1 starter in Orlando Brown Jr., Ozzie Newsome doubled up on offensive tackles. He selected Greg Senat in the sixth-round. The Ravens are a team known for targeting Day 3 offensive lineman and they followed through with that philosophy. Players like Rick Wagner and Ryan Jensen have proved to be viable starters over the years.

Senat may fall into this category, but not right away. Simply put, he’s a project player. It’s a chance the team could take given the number of picks and talent they found in the earlier rounds of the draft. Senat was a dual-sport athlete at Wagner and didn’t join the football team until his junior season. He’s a very raw, even more so than Scott.
Senat is an intriguing prospect. At just 305 pounds, he’ll certainly need to bulk up to be a tackle by NFL standards. That’s something a professional strength and conditioning program can easily fix and given his athleticism, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as a potential guard candidate down the road. Versatility always improves playing time.
Out of three players on this list, Senat would be the most likely to be a practice squad candidate. Brown and James Hurst provide ample depth for the season and there’s still plenty of molding to do with the young rookie.
