First, there was Tastykakes. Now, there is Honey Buns.In the revolving door known as the Ravens' offensive line, the latest possible starter to spin out is 6-foot-2, 310-pound first-year guard Ben Cavil. Or is that center Wally Williams?Cavil looks like Williams. Cavil is built like Williams. They sport pretty much the same hairstyle, and Williams wears the number Cavil wore and adored in college (63).And both have an affection for sweets."Wally eats at least two Tastykakes a day," said offensive tackle Orlando Brown.

Severna Park catcher Brandon Cavil often had a rough time during Friday's game against South River, but he erased that with one swing of the bat. Cavil hit a two-run, two-out single in the seventh inning that gave No. 7 Severna Park an 11-10 victory over visiting South River in an Anne Arundel County game. Cavil came up with the bases loaded. South River (12-4, 10-2) had taken a 10-9 lead on Nick Sia's RBI double in the top inning, but Severna Park (10-4, 8-4) wouldn't give in. The Falcons loaded the bases with one out before Scott Mitchell struck out Bradley Keith.

The youth movement the Ravens set into motion last winter became official yesterday, when the team waived 10 players and reduced its roster size to 51, nearly a third of whom have never played a regular-season down in the NFL.On a day when all teams had to cut rosters to at least 53 players, the Ravens also were busy addressing depth problems on their offensive line.After waiving rookie free-agent offensive linemen Alex Bernstein, Randy Bierman, Jerome Daniels, Mike Flynn and Dennis Whitmore, the Ravens acquired veteran tackle-guard Bernard Dafney and second-year guard Ben Cavil by swinging trades with Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

The Ravens had another changing of the guards yesterday, moving veteran Leo Goeas back into the starting lineup in place of first-year player Ben Cavil.Goeas, who was signed to a three-year, $2 million contract in March, said offensive line coach Kirk Ferentz informed him of the move Monday, and the transition took place yesterday in the Ravens' first practice for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Memorial Stadium.Cavil started for Goeas the past four games at left guard, but the two probably will alternate quarters for the next couple of games.

Ben Cavil knows how anonymously an offensive lineman lives on the field. Sale Isaia knows all too well how quickly that luxury can vanish.Cavil's chances at winning the starting left guard position rose yesterday, at the terrible expense of Isaia, whose injury-marred career with the Ravens may be over.Tests revealed Isaia has a torn left Achilles' tendon, knocking him out of action for the 1998 season and dealing him his second devastating injury in as many training camps. Last year on the first day of camp, he went down with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

As a Raven, Ben Cavil was as big as a house. Now, he's selling them. "I enjoy what I'm doing - pointing first-time buyers in the right direction," said Cavil, a new home counselor in Houston. At 320 pounds, the former offensive guard still takes up a healthy chunk of real estate. The man whom Ravens teammates called "Honey Buns" for his sweet tooth is 35 now and has been battling diabetes for four years. "That hit me hard," said Cavil, who believes he has the disease under control. "It was my wake-up call.

Ravens center Quentin Neujahr has handled his demotion as well as could be expected.Neujahr, in his third season, played well in the team's first six games, filling in for starter Wally Williams, who injured an Achilles' tendon in late April.But when the Ravens play the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Memorial Stadium, Williams will start and Neujahr will be observing. The move doesn't seem to have surprised Neujahr."There was an understanding. I knew it was coming," he said. "It wasn't like I had the job, didn't play well and lost it. I think I played all right.

Ravens left guard Sale Isaia is expected to have a magnetic resonance imaging exam today after injuring his left Achilles' tendon yesterday on a running play at training camp, an injury that could cause some major shuffling on the offensive line.Coach Ted Marchibroda said he didn't think the tendon was severed, but a torn Achilles' would put the 6-foot-5, 315-pound Isaia out for the season. Isaia missed all of last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee suffered during a noncontact drill on the first day of training camp.

Spooked by their prospects at left guard, the Ravens turned to the supernatural powers of Wally Williams, then replaced him at center with a ghost.That's what the players called Jeff Mitchell last season -- "The Ghost." He was invisible, all right, a rookie lost for the season two days into the first full week of training camp.Mitchell, 24, has yet to play a down in the NFL. He is coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Yet, the Ravens are ready to stick him in the middle of their vaunted offensive line.
