New, comments

(Baltimore traded it's "regular" 5th round pick to move up and draft ILB Arthur Jones, but still has the final Compensatory Pick in the round, 168th overall.)

Ricky Wagner, OT (Wisconsin): At 6'6", 308 pounds, Wagner is a typically big Badger offensive lineman. He protected the blind side in 2011 for current Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. Wisconsin focuses on the run game, which is Wagner's strength, according to NFL.com. He is projected as more of a right tackle.

NFL Draft Scout has him rated as the 15th best OT in the draft.

You can watch him in the video above against Ohio State, but in 2011. Ironically, he's matched up against new Ravens draft pick, Ohio State's John Simon.

Here is NFL.com's 'Bottom Line' analysis:

BOTTOM LINE

With the Badgers producing first-round offensive linemen in each of the last two drafts, it is doubtful Wagner will continue that streak. He has been a consistent figure on the left side of Wisconsin's offensive line the last two seasons, but expect Wagner to find his home on the right side in the NFL with an outside shot at playing left tackle in a pinch.
