Ravens OL John Urschel announced his retirement after three seasons in the NFL.
Only 26 and slated to compete for a starting job, this decision comes as a surprise, and it is likely not a coincidence the announcement comes two days after a scary study about the prevalence of CTE in NFL players was released. A doctoral candidate in mathematics at MIT, Urschel has a bright future off the football field. With Urschel out of the running, Ryan Jensen is the favorite to take over at center.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the team will have open competitions at center and right tackle.

Baltimore lost RT Rick Wagner in free agency and traded C Jeremy Zuttah. John Urschel and Ryan Jensen are expected to compete for Zuttah's old spot while James Hurst, De'Ondre Wesley, and Stephane Nembot will battle for the right tackle job. Alex Lewis is also a candidate at both spots, but the Ravens want to keep him at left guard if possible. Both positions could be addressed in the draft.

The Baltimore Sun calls third-year OG John Urschel the Ravens' "likely starter" at left guard.

The Ravens are trying to replace Kelechi Osemele, whom the Raiders signed away for $58.5 million. Ryan Jensen was better than Urschel when given chances to play last season, but the organization invested a higher draft pick into the latter. Rookie Alex Lewis, who played tackle at Nebraska, is also in the mix.

Ravens signed fifth-round OG John Urschel to a four-year contract.

Urschel exclusively played right guard at Penn State, earning first-team All-Big Ten honors twice. He projects as an early-career backup along the interior.

Ravens selected Penn State G John Urschel with the No. 175 overall pick in the NFL draft.

Urschel (6-foot-3, 313) was a two-time first-team All-Big Ten guard on the field in Happy Valley and also shined off of it, graduating in less than three years with a 4.0 GPA in mathematics. He made 25 career starts, all at right guard. Urschel is an average athlete (5.31 forty, 29-inch vertical), but has good arm length (33") for the interior. He'll open his career competing to be a "swing" guard-center reserve.
