Rick Wagner is the Ravens' starting right tackle.
Wagner is a former high school basketball player and receiver. He went to Wisconsin as a tight end but became a tackle after he grew into the position. Wagner is obviously a plus athlete. Jah Reid and Ryan Jensen were supposed to compete with Wagner for the starting job, but didn't bring much to the table. Wagner is a question mark, but can't be any worse than Michael Oher.

The Ravens are banking on Rick Wagner as their starting right tackle.

Most observers expected the Ravens to address the tackle position in the draft or sign a veteran like Eric Winston. They did neither. Now it's up to Wagner, a 2013 fifth-rounder, to seize control of the job. He can't be much worse than last year's RT Michael Oher, who was brutally ineffective in both the run and pass games.

ESPN Ravens blogger Jamison Hensley expects Ricky Wagner to open the season as the starting right tackle.

Wagner is only battling Ryan Jensen for the starting job, so he's facing little in the way of competition. A veteran signing like Eric Winston can't be ruled out, but the Ravens appear set to move forward with their current depth. Baltimore's projected offensive line is LT Eugene Monroe, LG Kelechi Osemele, C Jeremy Zuttah, RG Marshal Yanda, and RT Wagner.

ESPN Ravens blogger Jamison Hensley puts a 45% on the Ravens drafting a right tackle early in the draft.

Hensley said earlier in the offseason second-year T Ricky Wagner would be given a shot to win the job, but he is "buying" the Ravens' interest in Notre Dame G/T Zack Martin and believes they could select him with the 17th overall pick. Both would be upgrades over former RT Michael Oher, whom the Titans overpaid to the tune of $20 million over four years.

ESPN Ravens blogger Jamison Hensley expects 2013 fifth-round pick Ricky Wagner to get a chance to earn the starting right tackle job in 2014.

Michael Oher is an impending free agent and might not be back in Baltimore. Wagner was the 168th pick in last April's draft after being a three-year starter at Wisconsin. At 6-foot-6, 308, Wagner has long arms and plus athleticism but got manhandled at Senior Bowl practices last year, causing his stock to fall. There's certainly going to be a right-tackle competition in Baltimore.

Ravens agreed to terms with No. 168 overall pick OT Ricky Wagner on a four-year contract.

Wagner (6-foot-5 7/8, 308) was a three-year starter at Wisconsin, playing the last two seasons at left tackle. The 2012 All-Big Ten selection will provide depth in Baltimore, and he could develop into a swing tackle.

The Ravens do not consider fifth-round OT Ricky Wagner a candidate for their left tackle opening.

Kelechi Osemele would be Baltimore's left tackle if the season began today. Wagner is merely competing for a roster spot. Assistant GM Eric DeCosta referred to Wagner as "a great depth guy for us initially with a chance to emerge."

Ravens selected Wisconsin OT Ricky Wagner with the No. 168 overall pick.

Wagner (6-foot-5 7/8, 308) was a three-year college starter, playing right tackle in 2010 before succeeding Gabe Carimi as the Badgers' starting left tackle in 2011 and 2012. Wagner has plus athleticism and 34-inch arms, but he's going to have to add strength. Also displaying inconsistent feet, Wagner is a bit of a 'tweener left/right tackle. His NFL ceiling may be a swing-tackle reserve. The Ravens still need a starting left tackle.
