Offensive tackle is still the biggest need for the Ravens. With popular mock draft picks like Arizona's Jordan Morgan and Oklahoma's Tyler Guyton off the board just a few picks before Baltimore was on the clock, Eric DeCosta was forced to wait until Day 2 to find any linemen to target.

Suamataia is a first-round player from a physical point of view, but some technical shortcomings may have been what ultimately relegated him to a role as a second-round player. Baltimore should take advantage of his fall, making him a potential successor to Ronnie Stanley at the left tackle spot.

Few in this draft can equal Suamataia when it comes to both being a physical beast who can steamroll as a run-blocker and an immovable anchor in pass protection who is ready to handle pro pass rushers. His inconsistencies in hand placement and being too aggressive off the line can be coached.

After addressing some defensive shortcomings with the Wiggins pick, DeCosta can consider this draft a home run if the Ravens are able to add a lineman with the potential that Suamataia has. While he may not last until No. 62, DeCosta could consider a quick move up.
