Ranking Baltimore Ravens amongst AFC North offensive tackle

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The offseason is a good time to look back at the Baltimore Ravens roster. It is also a good time to rank things, so why not combine both with our position room rankings? We are looking at each position room in the AFC North and seeing where the Ravens stand in comparison.

The starters have a big say, but this is also focusing on which teams have the best depth as well. For the offensive tackle position, it got tight.

4. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dan Moore, Broderick Jones, Chuks Okorafor, LaRaven Clark

The Pittsburgh Steelers made a big addition with Broderick Jones, but he is an unproven rookie, and he fell to the 14th pick because some think he will be raw in his first year. Without Jones being a stud, the room is bleak. Dan Moore may start on the left side until Jones is ready, but they drafted Jones to replace Moore. Okorafor is about an average starter, and Clark is a worst-case scenario if he gets into the game.

3. Cleveland Browns: Jed Wills, Jack Conklin, James Hudson, Dawand Jones

The Cleveland Browns can make a strong case for number one. They have some of the name power but not quite the player ability. Conklin can be elite, but he was injured in 2021, and 2022 was a down-year. Wills has been solid but has not entirely lived up to his expectations. The Browns did pick up his fifth-year option, but it at least came with debate.

James Hudson and Dawand Jones were fans of some in the draft media, but neither has shown anything in the NFL. There could be a leap in all areas, and they end up at number one, but for now, they are a bit lower.

2. Baltimore Ravens: Ronnie Stanley, Morgan Moses, Daniel Faalele, Patrick Mekari

You could say we are being a bit optimistic with the Baltimore Ravens, but when we last saw Ronnie Stanley, he was better than Wills and Conklin during their most recent stretch. The Browns fans will argue that Stanley needs to finish an entire season, but he is healthy now, was good, and should be looked at similarly. Beyond that, while Moses is the oldest of the starting tackles, he also held it down well last year.

Faalele has more experience than guys like Dawand Jones and James Hudson, and Mekari is a valuable piece in the room. That is enough to lock them into number two.

1. Cincinatti Bengals: Jonah Williams, Orlando Brown, La'El Collins, Jackson Carman

You could argue the Browns, Ravens, and Bengals are in the top three for a while. On paper, Stanley is better than Brown and Williams, but these two have been consistent, and we saw Brown not only finish a season but win a Super Bowl. Williams is capable, although moving sides does make it a much stronger debate.

Then, there is Collins, who is Injured now, but should be fine at some point this season. That added depth, and the fact that Carman has started a game or two edge the Ravens out just by an inch. If we were guaranteed even 15 games from Stanley this year, they would be number one, but it is less of a lock than anyone else.
