Three more diamonds in the rough:
Edwin Mulitalo (Fourth round 1999)
Mulitalo was a legend from the first Super Bowl run for the Ravens. According to NFL.com, he started 128 out of 132 games in his career. He was with the Ravens from 1999-2006 before finishing his career with the Detroit Lions. Mulitalo was one of the toughest players in Ravens history and he was a consistent player who was one of the best run blockers in team history. Having him and Jonathan Ogden on the same side of the offensive line was one of the best duos in the history of football. The Ravens used to be able to run to the left side better than any team in the NFL.
Casey Rabach (Third round, 2001)
Rabach started 23 games for the Ravens. He started all 16 games for the Ravens in 2004. He will be known much more by Washington Redskins fans because he was a starting center for them for six seasons.
Mike Flynn (Udrafted free agent, 1997)
Flynn started 115 games in 10 seasons with the Ravens. He spent his entire career with the Ravens. He became a starter at right guard in 2000, the year the Ravens won Super Bowl XXXV. When Jeff Mitchell moved on from the purple and black after winning it all, Flynn became the starting center. A good way to remember Flynn is as the Kelly Gregg of the offense. He was a fixture in the middle of the line of scrimmage, who didn’t always get a lot of attention for it. Flynn is one of the most underrated players in franchise history.
The main takeaway here is that Baltimore can find starters anywhere in the draft process when it comes to offensive linemen. The Yanda retirement doesn’t mean the team must change their entire offseason thinking. If history keeps repeating itself, Ben Powers will fill in at right guard.
