Offensive lineman Ryan Jensen hadn't felt like his normal self for a long time. He was visibly groggy from a lack of sleep. He was more irritable than usual. And he didn't feel as energetic as he needed to be on the Ravens' practice field. It turned out there was a reason why. Jensen recently was diagnosed with and treated for severe sleep apnea, a life-threatening disorder when left untreated. It also might have played a role in Jensen's being cut by the Ravens on Saturday after a preseason performance the 2013 sixth-round draft pick from Colorado State-Pueblo wasn't pleased with.

"When I saw Lauvao do that, I kind of was just [upset]

All was not lost for the Maryland football team, not on a night when it received its first commitment for the Class of 2015. Hours after the Terps fell to No. 9 Clemson, 40-27, Linganore offensive lineman E.J. Donahue announced Saturday night on Twitter that he had orally committed to the Terps: "I will be staying home and playing for my home state. I'm committing to University of Maryland!!! #GoTerps " At a listed 6 feet 5, 330 pounds, Donahue is a big get. There's been something of a bumper crop locally for offensive linemen, with Class of 2014 commits Jared Cohen, Derwin Gray, Larry Mazyck and targets Damian Prince and Brock Ruble all hailing from the DMV, and Donahue, a 247sports.com four-star prospect, seems to fit that mold.

They gathered in the living room at their mother's Northwest Houston home the way they did so many times growing up. But for Kelechi Osemele, this April night was all about moving forward rather than looking back. The sibling rivalry he endured with his three older sisters had helped prepare him for this moment. His relationship with his mother was turbulent at times, but he now knew why Imelda Osemele had always been so strict and demanding. His father was not present for his big night, nor had he been around for much of his life.

Maryland defensive lineman Isaiah Ross has been suspended for a year for violations of university policy. Another player -- offensive lineman Pete White -- is leaving the team although he remains enrolled at the school. Ross is also still enrolled. Maryland would not offer details about Ross. The only offense cited in the university's "Policy on Conduct and Ethics for Student-Athletes" and the "Drug Policy for Student-Athletes" that specifically mandates a year-long suspension is a third violation of the drug policy.

Near the end of yesterday's draft luncheon, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome produced the biggest revelation of the day when he said there could be a quarterback that the team would take with the 29th pick of the first round. A few minutes after the news conference concluded, Newsome told a smaller group of reporters: "Nothing I said today will allow you to know what we're going to do at the draft because I said we might take a quarterback at 29." Subterfuge aside, it's more likely the Ravens will take an offensive lineman instead of a quarterback in the first round of next week's draft.

Jason Brown still remembers waiting until the second day of the 2005 draft before the Ravens called the University of North Carolina offensive lineman's name in the fourth round. He carries the responsibility of providing for a large family, which includes a wife who is a dental school student at North Carolina. Most of all, Brown is driven by the memory of his brother Lunsford, an Army soldier who died in a mortar attack in Iraq three years ago. His goal is to prove that he belongs in the NFL. Judging by the Ravens' decision to promote Brown to starting left guard position after Edwin Mulitalo's season-ending triceps injury, Brown is on his way. "With my situation right now, I just feel so humbled," said Brown, who is will make his second career start Monday night against the Denver Broncos.

Fulfilling their top free agent priority, the  Ravens  have agreed to a five-year deal with left tackle  Eugene Monroe , the first step in an expected offensive line makeover.  Monroe, whom the Ravens acquired from the  Jacksonville Jaguars  in October for fourth- and fifth-round picks, was considered one of the top left tackles on the free-agent market. However, the Ravens were able to lock him up to a five-year, $37.5 million deal not long after the market opened at 4 p.m. According to a source, the deal includes an $11 million signing bonus and $19 million in guarantee money.

Former Ravens offensive lineman Jonathan Ogden is considered a strong candidate to be part of the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame class. But before that, Ogden learned that he'll be enshrined into another Hall of Fame. The former UCLA star was one of 14 players to be selected for the College Hall of Fame. He'll be inducted in September. Ogden was a four-year starter at left tackle for the Bruins. In his final season at UCLA, Ogden was awarded the Outland Trophy, given to college football's top lineman, and named a unanimous first-team All-American.  He was then drafted by the Ravens with the fourth overall pick in the 1996 draft.

In many ways, Antron Harper personifies what the 2005 Navy football team is all about. He is young, a sophomore who had never played a down for the varsity until last Saturday's heartbreaking 23-20 defeat to Maryland at M&T Bank Stadium. He is far undersized, a 249-pound offensive guard who ranks as the lightest starting offensive lineman in NCAA Division I-A football. And he is feisty, tenacious, intelligent and quick, all qualities that characterize the battling band that threw a major scare into the Terrapins, who finally prevailed with 1:01 to play in the game.

When the Ravens traded for Eugene Monroe two months ago, the belief was that he would immediately upgrade the left tackle position and the hope was that he would become one of the team's best linemen. It was a rough start for Monroe. He allowed a sack against the Green Bay Packers in his first start at left tackle, according to Pro Football Focus, and was beaten for four in his first five games here, including two in the Week 11 loss to the Chicago Bears. Coach John Harbaugh publicly said he could play better.

There's a boogie board in his basement, a mountain bike in the garage and a black lab named Jake at the back door, begging for a five-mile walk. At 69, Elmer Collett doesn't want for things to do. A pile of firewood needs splitting, the motors on both of his fishing boats need remounting and his 12-year-old pick-up should have a tuneup before Collett heads back to the hills to mine for gold in the High Sierras. Clearly, the former Colt and Pro Bowl guard found life after football.
