Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher has switched positions in each of his three seasons in the NFL.
In 2009, the team’s first-round draft pick, who was a left tackle at Mississippi, played right tackle in his rookie season. A year later, the Jared Gaither saga prompted the Ravens to move him to left tackle. After starting 16 games on the blind side, Oher was shuffled back to right tackle in 2011 when Bryant McKinnie was signed.
In an appearance last week on “The Norris & Davis Show” on 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore, Oher said that he would play whatever position on the offensive line the Ravens ask him to play. “It doesn’t matter as long as we’re winning games and getting to championships,” he said. However, Oher explained that it is difficult to switch from spot to spot and said it would be beneficial if he didn’t have to learn (or relearn) another position.
