The Baltimore Ravens are still in the process of figuring out which path they should go down in the 2024 NFL Draft. If fans get their way following an offseason full of change on the offensive side of the ball, the Ravens could welcome a new offensive tackle into the fold as they push for yet another championship.

The Ravens sent Morgan Moses away to the New York Jets and chose not to cut veteran Ronnie Stanley loose. While Baltimore has some solid internal options at both guard spots, the Ravens seem to be setting up an uninspiring competition between Daniel Faalele and Josh Jones for the right tackle spot.

The Ravens have been connected to Arizona offensive tackle Jordan Morgan recently, with NFL insiders highlighting the fringe first-round player as someone Baltimore could target at No. 30 overall. Another insider poured more gas on the Morgan fire while also mentioning an interesting alternative on the line.

Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer specifically mentioned Morgan as a player Baltimore has their eyes set on. However, if Baltimore wants to look at a player better situated for the interior offensive line, Breer made mention of Oregon center Jackson Powers-Johnson as a target for the Ravens.

The Ravens could look to kick Morgan inside to guard if they value his power on the interior, but everything about his profile suggests that he is just a few technical improvements away from becoming a solid starting right tackle or a successor to Ronnie Stanley at left tackle.

Morgan might not have the high-end potential of players like Georgia's Amarius Mims, Alabama's JC Latham, or Oklahoma's Tyler Guyton. However, he could be a safer option with more experience and better hand placement in pass protection.

The Ravens would obviously look to convert Powers-Johnson to guard if they picked him due to the presence of Tyler Linderbaum. Such a move might be worth realizing, as the Oregon star was without question the finest pass-blocking interior lineman in the country last season. A Pro Bowl shouldn't be too far in his future.

Powers-Johnson allowed just four pressures during his final season at Oregon, and he has more than enough mobility to move over to guard if the situation should arise. While the idea of using a first-round pick on a lineman may not be set in stone, it seems like Baltimore is leaning in that direction.
