OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have selected Iowa State offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele with the 60th overall pick in the NFL draft.

Osemele is a 6’5″, 333-pounder who started 43 straight games on the Iowa State line. He played 38 of those games at left tackle and five at left guard.

The Ravens needed an offensive lineman after losing free agent Ben Grubbs to the New Orleans Saints.

Earlier in the second round, Baltimore made its first pick of the draft. General manager Ozzie Newsome chose Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw with the 35th overall selection, a pick obtained in a trade Thursday night with the Minnesota Vikings.

Newsome dealt the 29th overall pick to Minnesota for the 35th overall selection and a fourth-rounder.
