OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens have selected Notre Dame offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley with the sixth overall pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-6, 312-pound Stanley shined at left tackle for the Irish throughout his four-year career. He started all 13 games in 2014 as the team’s offensive lineman of the year.

The Ravens haven’t had a standout left tackle since Hall of Fame entrant Jonathan Ogden retired in 2007.

Baltimore thought it found the answer in Eugene Monroe, but he’s been slowed by injury since signing a five-year contract in March 2014. Monroe played in 11 games that year, and last season suited up only six times before placed on injured reserve in December.
