Cliches are often repeated for a reason though, and that reason is that they’re usually true.In this case, it definitely is, as the teams that are competitive year in and year out typically are strong along both lines. This of course includes the offensive line, a positional group we’ll be evaluating today for the Ravens.Baltimore has a reputation for usually fielding a strong offensive line, something that was mostly true again in 2018. They have a nice mix of solid starters and promising rookies, as well as a perennial All-Pro at the guard position.Let’s take a look at the overall offensive line outlook heading into 2019:Current depth chart:Left tackle: Ronnie Stanley (2019 cap hit = $6,517,744), James Hurst (2019 cap hit = $4,750,00), Jermaine Eleumenor (ERFA)Left guard: Alex Lewis (2019 cap hit = $842,975) Color Rush Justin Tucker Jersey , Bradley Bozeman (2019 cap hit = $599,602), EleumenorCenter: Matt Skura (ERFA), Lewis, BozemanRight Guard: Marshal Yanda (2019 cap hit = $10,125,222), Bozeman, EleumenorRight Tackle: Orlando Brown Jr. (2019 cap hit = $843,430), Hurst, EluemenorOffseason outlook:Starting from left to right, Stanley has had an interesting start to his career as Baltimore. He hasn’t quite turned into the dominant tackle the front office was expecting when they grabbed him at sixth overall in 2016, but he hasn’t been anything close to a bust either.Rather, he’s a solid player Justin Tucker Jersey Boys , who interestingly enough graded out at #16 overall of Pro Football Focus’ tackle rankings, good for middle of the pack among league starters. He’ll certainly need to get a bit better but for now his performance has been adequate enough to keep around as a bookend on the blindside; whether he’ll be worth a massive extension next offseason is a different story at this point.Behind him is swing tackle James Hurst who signed a pretty sizable deal to provide depth and versatility for Baltimore during the next several years. The results were somewhat mixed but the team is probably locked into him for the next few years and can at least count on his ability to play all along the line.The outlook becomes a bit tricky when you begin to look at the left interior into the center position. Alex Lewis is a solid young player who has some versatility a-la Hurst, but has a concerning injury history; the Ravens can definitely do better but for now he’s a cheap solution who has at least proven he can play in this league.Looking at the center position, the situation is even more murky. Matt Skura struggled mightily at times this season and graded out as PFF’s #25 starter this year; Eric DeCosta will almost definitely look for an upgrade this Spring.At right guard is the aforementioned All-Pro Marshal Yanda, who will likely finish the last few years of his career in purple. His stellar play again this season should justify him sticking around, even at a relatively large cap hit for an interior lineman. Next to him is the right tackle of the future and third round steal, Orlando Brown Jr. Brown entered the lineup halfway through the year and finished with the above average PFF grade of 65.1; Baltimore has to be thrilled that his subpar combine showing allowed them to nab him later than he should’ve gone.There aren’t a ton of big names set to hit the market for this position group, as is usually the case with lineman. Having said that, look for DeCosta to potentially swing a trade or invest high draft capital into improving the interior of this unit.Let us know how you expect the front office to address the o-line this offseason.ESPN: How the Ravens can win Super Bowl LIII With the NFL season kicking off, the hope that manifests from the last several months of the offseason still exists for most of the 32 teams. This is the case until each of them begins their season and certain realities begin to set in, which ultimately expose the potentially fatal flaws of of these squads. Until then though, a case can plausibly be made for many of the teams in the league to hoist the Lombardi trophy in Atlanta. In an article for ESPN, Bill Barnwell lays out a blueprint for every single team to do so, including the Baltimore Ravens.While even the most optimistic fans of the purple and black probably aren’t especially hopeful for a title run this season, Barnwell notes that no national media members picked Philadelphia to do so a year ago. As a result Cheap Justin Tucker Jersey , none of the scenarios laid out in his article are especially crazy, including Baltimore’s, who he writes up at 10th likeliest based upon their Super Bowl odds:His point about Jackson possessing a higher ceiling than Flacco is interesting. While Jackson has a ton of potential to be a great quarterback, he still has some growing to do, which may keep the team from a deep playoff run should he take over as the starter.This isn’t to say it couldn’t be done, as Flacco himself nearly put Baltimore in the Super Bowl as a rookie in 2008. However, the veteran’s postseason experience would likely give them a better shot of winning a ring this season, even if Jackson presents more upside down the line.Instead of focusing on the offense though, it’s the defense and special teams that look especially Super Bowl caliber. Jimmy Smith’s suspension certainly hurts, but the same strong defense returns with a hopefully more aggressive coordinator to unleash them.Justin Tucker and Sam Koch are among the best at what they do, led by Jerry Rosburg who is a criminally underrated coordinator in the national landscape. If everything comes together as expected, Baltimore could be a surprise team in the hunt for a Lombardi trophy this winter.
