Ryan Jensen could factor into left guard discussion

If Kelechi Osemele moves to right tackle, Ryan Jensen could be an option at left guard.

The Ravens' offensive line has been a hot topic since everyone realized it was among the NFL's least productive during the 2013 season.

The unit struggled to spring any of Baltimore's running backs loose and finished the year with a franchise worst 1,328 rushing yards. Offseason talk has centered on how to improve the line, whether it's through position switches, free agency or the draft.

One position switch would involve moving Kelechi Osemele from left guard to right tackle. At the NFL owners' meetings, coach John Harbaugh said the plan was to keep Osemele where he is now.

On Tuesday, he opened up some wiggle room on that.


Ryan Jensen was drafted to be a center for the Ravens. But he wasn't able to factor in the competition after breaking his foot early in training camp. He's a bigger option at center, 6-3, 304, and had a reputation of being a mauler in college at Colorado State-Pueblo. But perhaps he's good enough to crack the top five overall linemen.

It's a tough situation to get a feel for since no one has seen him play a game snap.

We'll have to wait and see. Voluntary workouts are about a month and a half away.
