Second year player, Ryan Jensen is coming off a broken foot during his rookie season and a new position change. The Ravens have decided to push the center/guard over to tackle to help bolster a spot with limited depth to compete with Ricky Wagner.
The Ravens must think highly of the second year player to put him at right tackle to compete for starting snaps. The Ravens have had Jensen work both at left and right tackle during OTAs even though he hasnt played any games as a rookie.
Jensen was a division II All-American and All-Conference selection with 44 consecutive snaps at left tackle. The Ravens selected him in the 6th round of the 2013 NFL draft out of Colorado Sate University. Listed at 6-foot-3, 304-pounds leaving him with quick feet that make him a good candidate for the tackle position, the Ravens had Jensen practice at all five positions on the offensive line since joining the team last year.
Harbaugh had this to say about Jensen's move and the implications of it:
Yes, we moved Ryan. Obviously we moved him, but he’s getting reps at both right tackle and left tackle. We’re going to put him in the mix out there and see how he does. He played tackle in college, so he’s comfortable out there, mentally, it seems like. We’ll see if he’s a fit out there also. It’ll just give us more competition.
