3. Who should start at center?
It’s hard to pick against Matt Skura here, and there are two reasons why that’s the case. First, Skura is the only natural center on the roster. Secondly, Skura’s playing time at guard went okay and that was just the baseline, he can improve on the job. Skura may not have a great PFF score to fall back on and he may be relatively unknown to the casual fan, but he put in some decent work in the 2017 season. Skura is in a position that Ryan Jensen found himself in a year ago. He’s been a backup, he’s gotten some experience and he could prove to be the surprisingly good answer at the center position.
A Dose of Bozeman?
The Ravens also drafted Bradley Bozeman late on the third day of the 2018 NFL Draft. Bozeman has the size and strength to get the job done. He hails from the Alabama Crimson Tide, so he’s no stranger of championship football. Bozeman is a candidate for the job, but first he has to win a roster spot. The Ravens have a lot of depth at the interior of the offensive line and nothing is just given in the NFL.
There have been a lot of calls for the Ravens to convert a guard to replace Jensen at center. Alex Lewis, whose father was a center, is a popular choice. Nico Siragusa, who spent his rookie season on injured reserve, is another player people are mentioning. The Ravens might do some experimentation at this position however, anything other than Skura would be a project. Skura is a natural fit for the position. Bozeman is a rookie.
