The Ravens don’t have a good answer for what they are going to do with the offensive line. It doesn’t matter who you put in at left guard, there is going to be a good number of doubt that comes with that position. Jermaine Eluemunor was carted off the field in the joint practice between the Ravens and Eagles and he has missed some practice time. Eluemunor has played the best at the position so far, however that’s not the highest bar. Eluemunor looks improved, so hopefully he is the answer. The keyword in the previous sentence was hopefully.
The Ravens could plug James Hurst, Pat Mekari, Ben Powers or even Bradley Bozeman at this position and there would be almost the same level of confidence. It looks like the Ravens just have a bunch of guys at the left guard spot. Nobody has won the job in an obvious fashion. The left tackle spot belongs to Ronnie Stanley. Matt Skura has not been unseated at center and Marshal Yanda is always the answer at right guard. Orlando Brown Jr. is at right tackle. If the Ravens stay healthy up front, the left guard spot is the only glaring problem area.
In the third preseason game, the Ravens didn’t play Stanley or Yanda. The complete lack of depth was an eyesore that evening. The Ravens don’t know what they are going to get out of the offensive line. The left guard spot remains a concern. Quality depth remains problematic as well.
