Baltimore Selects OL Kelechi Osemele in Second Round

 

Raw and Athletic. Is he too much of a project for a second-rounder?

The Baltimore Ravens have selected Iowa State offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele with the 60th overall pick in the NFL draft.

Osemele is a 6-foot-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. Even though he played most of his college games at Tackle he seems to be a better fit at Guard where the Ravens are looking to replace Ben Grubbs.

He appears to a bit more of a project than you might want for a team that has an immediate need to fill but his athleticism and strength were enough to entice Baltimore to grab him late in the round.
