Poll: Who starts at Right Tackle for the Ravens?

From the Baltimore Sun:

Does his addition (Will Rackley) make it more plausible to move current starting left guard Kelechi Osemele over to right tackle? The Ravens did not get a replacement for Michael Oher in the draft, leaving unproven Rick Wagner and major disappointment Jah Reid as the top candidates to start at right tackle. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome mentioned Osemele as an option at right tackle after the draft, even though team officials have been consistent to this point in saying that they’d prefer keeping Osemele at guard.

Rick Wagner

That would be second-year right tackle Rick Wagner, who was named the de facto starter at the position by John Harbaugh earlier this offseason. Wagner's main competition will now come from Jah Reid and two undrafted free agents, North Carolina's James Hurst and Oklahoma State's Parker Graham. Hurst could wind up being Wagner's toughest competition, as he was thought of as a second-to-third round pick before suffering a broken leg in his bowl game.

Jah Reid

Has been a major disappointment since being selected 85th overall in the 2011 draft. More of a guard.

James Hurst

During the Ravens' rookie minicamp, Hurst moved well and showed no signs of any lingering problems with his leg and impressed Harbaugh, as did his fellow undrafted rookie offensive linemen Parker Graham (Oklahoma State) and Brett Van Sloten (Iowa).

Parker Graham

It is hard to see how few make it into the NFL, until a consensus All-Big 12 First Team offensive lineman is an undrafted free agent, fighting for just one of the only 53 roster spots available. That is the new battle for former Oklahoma State lineman Parker Graham. Graham who has experience at both tackle positions and the right guard, projects to be at least at the start of his NFL career, a guard. Graham played right guard the final eight games this last season, a season in which Graham would be selected first team Big 12, not only by the media, but by the coaches as well.

David Mims

Career backup that has not registered an offensive snap.
