Gino Gradkowski: Ravens' Center Of The Future?

New, comments
David Richard-US PRESSWIRE
With the retirement of Baltimore Ravens Center, Matt Birk, Gino Gradkowski will be the "next man up to the plate". After being drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the 6-foot-3, 300lb. boulder saw limited playing time his rookie year. The 24-year-old out of Delaware looks to have solid potential moving forward but he will be hard-pressed to perform at anywhere the same level that Birk did, but certainly has the talent to be a solid force in the near future. It will be interesting to see, however, if the Baltimore Ravens look to the draft or free agency to fill the void left by Matt Birk's retirement or if they will continue their philosophy of "the next man up" and stick with Gino. Who do you guys think will be the starting Center for the Baltimore Ravens at the beggining of the 2013-2014 NFL Season? Gradkowski or perhaps someone else?
