The Ravens have been willing to slide rookies into the starting lineup after marinating on the bench for a few years, and Faalele was next in line after trading Morgan Moses. The addition of Washington's Roger Rosengarten in the second round has thrown a wrench into things.

Faalele is as big a tackle as there is in the league at 6-8 and 380 pounds, but his lack of amazingly quick footwork could be a problem as John Harbaugh tries to decide if he is a worthy starter in the pros. Rosengarten, meanwhile, is coming off one of the best seasons any right tackle has had in the last decade.

The Baltimore Ravens could play Roger Rosengarten over Daniel Faalele

Rosengarten didn't allow a sack in pass protection in two years as a starter at Washington, all while serving as the blindside protector for left-handed standout Michael Penix Jr. Rosengarten drew specific acclaim for his pass protection, a skill that will earn him playing time fairly early in Baltimore.

While Faalele would have likely been ready to assume a starting role on many other teams, drafting a player like Rosengarten in the late second round seemed like a no-brainer for Baltimore as such, Faalele may need to compete with Josh Jones to even earn the title of top backup behind Rosengarten.
