BALTIMORE (WJZ) — For the past couple of weeks names like Jalen Ramsey, Joey Bosa and Laremy Tunsil were being discussed as the top picks for the Ravens. Just ten minutes before the draft started, a suspicious video of Tunsil surfaced on Twitter causing the Ravens to remove him from the board, and both Bosa and Ramsey were both picked in the top five.
So with the Ravens on the clock, and rather than trading for later picks, they chose OT Ronnie Stanley from Notre Dame.
As a sophomore in 2013, he started all 13 games at right tackle, and was part of an offensive line that allowed just eight sacks and ranked second in the FBS in fewest sacks allowed.
As a junior in 2014, he moved to left tackle and started all 13 games, allowing only just one sack all year.
Stanley weighs in at 315 lbs and is 6’6″ and will be great protection for Joe Flacco.
