The Baltimore Ravens know that they will go as far as their offensive line allows Lamar Jackson to take them. That is why they have invested so much in the depth of this unit to ensure they can withstand any injuries. Through two weeks, how has the offensive line looked? Who are the standouts, and how would you grade the unit?
Baltimore Ravens left tackle
Patrick Mekari: 78 snaps
Primary matchup: Trey Hendrickson, Jonathan Greenard
Patrick Mekari stepped in for Ronnie Stanley about halfway through week one, finished that game, and then started and finished week two. He has been the primary left tackle for about six games now, with 393 snaps in his career. Mekari was fine when called upon in the Texans game, but his play at left tackle against Trey Hendrickson has to be commended. He did an incredible job of pushing Hendrickson outside his pass-rush loop, and he kept Lamar Jackson clean. Beyond that, he was excellent as a run blocker. It was as good as you can ask.
Ronnie Stanley: 49 snaps
Primary matchup: Jonathan Greenard
Ronnie Stanley gave up an early sack to Jonathan Greenard. Overall, Stanley looked okay but was brushing some rust off before he got hurt. His lack of playing time is starting to become a serious issue, and now you have to wonder how it will impact his play when he returns. We probably will not get to see the All-Pro caliber player again.
Patrick Mekari: A
Ronnie Stanley: C-
