Baltimore Ravens offensive line coach Kirk Ferentz was watching UCLA's offense when he put the video on rewind to watch Jonathan Ogden again. "There was one play where he was about 15 yards downfield and then he starts driving the free safety further down the field," said Ferentz. "He does it so easily that it never occurs to you that he is 6-8 and weighs 318 pounds. He's so fluid and good at what he does that he lulls you to sleep. " Ogden's athleticism is why the club made him the No. 1 pick in Ravens history Saturday, and why it believes he will have an easy transition to playing left guard.

Andre Gurode, a five-time Pro Bowler at center who started at right guard in 2003 and 2004 with the Dallas Cowboys, compared making the switch to left guard to asking a right-handed person to write with his left hand. “I've played guard before,” Gurode said Thursday. “I played on the right side, but I've never played on the left side. It's challenging, but I'm getting better day by day.” Gurode said he and Mark LeVoir are getting reps at left guard while starter Ben Grubbs continues to rehabilitate his injured toe. Grubbs has sat out the team's past two practices and is extremely questionable to play in Sunday's road game against the St. Louis Rams.

Kelechi Osemele and Gino Gradkowski were drafted by the Ravens, in part, because of their ability to play multiple offensive line positions, but they spent the majority of the minicamp at guard. Both rookies will compete with Jah Reid for the vacant starting lineup spot at left guard. Osemele said he played “very, very little” at left tackle, only to give others a breather. He said he struggled to pick up the team's zone-blocking scheme at first, but got the hang of it Sunday.
