Faalele is 6-9 and generously listed at 380 pounds, giving him more than enough size to be a solid starter at the NFL level. While Faalele is listed as the starter at right tackle after Morgan Moses was traded to the Jets, his starting spot is by no means secure due to how much of a risk he is.

Adding a first-round tackle might be a better investment than Faalele, who has started one game in the last two years. While he has shown to be a solid NFL backup in his limited action, Faalele is still not skilled enough as a lateral athlete to handle NFL-level edge rushers for 17 games and the playoffs.

The Baltimore Ravens could draft a right tackle

Oklahoma's Tyler Guyton, Georgia's Amarius Mims, and Alabama's JC Latham are all available in the first round, which could make them prime targets for DeCosta. On Day 2, look for Houston's Patrick Paul, Kansas' Dominick Puni, and Washington's Roger Rosengarten to come off the board.

If Faalele busts, the Ravens will need to live with the fact they passed on selecting a possible franchise tackle in a year when they were gunning for a title. With Ronnie Stanley also far from what he was, it seems quite likely that offensive line help is coming to Baltimore in some capacity.
