The Ravens reworked a lot of their offensive line in the offseason signing Kevin Zeitler and Alejandro Villanueva in free agency and adding Ben Cleveland in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The starting jobs, aside from left guard, are all solidified. But the battle for some of the depth spots remains up in the air.

In particular, it remains to be seen who will emerge as the Ravens’ primary swing tackle. One player who could sneak onto the roster is undrafted rookie Adrian Ealy.

A two-year starter at Oklahoma, Ealy was voted second-team All-Big 12 as both a sophomore and junior but somewhat surprisingly went unselected in this year’s draft.

Ealy projects as an ideal developmental tackle with excellent raw size and athleticism that serve as an ideal base. That should at least help him earn a spot on the practice squad, but perhaps he could push for more.

Tyre Phillips played mostly guard as a rookie, but the Ravens have been using him at tackle as well this summer. The same could be said for Patrick Mekari who is primarily a center, but is versatile enough to play all over the offensive line.

Veteran Andre Smith is still hanging around, although his chances of making the final roster seem to be growing slimmer by the week.

Ealy has a chance to stick around as the third or fourth tackle on the depth chart. But he’ll need a strong final couple of weeks to make a worthy case.
