Scott Otto feared he was about to lose one of his most promising players to another sport, so the Nathan Hale High football coach approached sophomore Rick Wagner and offered a compromise. "I said, 'Ricky, I know you're into basketball, but I'd love for you to play football,'" Otto recalled. "Obviously, he was worried about injury, so I said, 'You know what, I'll put you at wide receiver. All you've got to do is catch passes.' At the time, he was probably 6-foot-4, 220 pounds. I said, 'This will actually help you with basketball.

When the Ravens came within striking distance of picking a viable offensive tackle during the NFL draft, the options disappeared. Demand for quality offensive tackles quickly outweighed the supply Thursday as four were taken ahead of the Ravens' selection in the first round, including Notre Dame's Zack Martin by the Dallas Cowboys one pick before the Ravens drafted inside linebacker C.J. Mosley. The Cowboys won a coin flip over the Ravens at the NFL scouting combine in February for the 16th overall pick.

Eugene Monroe joined the Ravens last October as reinforcement for an offensive line that was equal parts injured and ineffective. Now that he's settled in Baltimore, the offensive tackle has begun to jel with the new-look offensive line and look towards a strong 2014 season. “It's definitely a good situation to be here the entire offseason, knowing who you're going to play with and getting better together,” Monroe said Wednesday. “It has been fun. I've been enjoying it.” The Ravens acquired Monroe from Jacksonville for a fourth- and fifth-round pick last season, and signed him to a five-year, $37.5 million contract extension shortly after free agency opened in March.

Adam Terry has no intention of dwelling on the past. The Ravens offensive tackle was impressive in starting last year's final two regular-season games, as the offensive line did not surrender a sack of Steve McNair. Though some Ravens fans may remember the 6-foot-8, 330-pound Terry's manhandling of Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Joey Porter in a 31-7 victory on Christmas Eve that eliminated the defending Super Bowl champions from playoff contention, Terry said he has given little thought to last season's performances.

Mark Clayton won't return to practice for a couple of weeks. The wait is much longer for Adam Terry. Terry, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in the offseason, is experiencing lingering problems with the knee, and the club is leaning toward shelving the fifth-year offensive tackle for the entire 2009 season. "It just looks right now that he's got some new issues with the knee from a healing perspective," coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday after the team's morning practice at McDaniel College in Westminster.

ASHBURN, Va. - At 6 feet 5 and 303 pounds, Chris Samuels is not your prototypical wide receiver. But that's what the burly Washington Redskins offensive tackle was - back in the eighth grade. About five inches and 150 pounds ago, Samuels was a wide receiver for his middle school team. The next year at John Shaw High School in Mobile, Ala., he switched to tight end, backup quarterback and finally tackle. Samuels is still such a fan of the wide receiver position that his role model is a certain Oakland Raider.

The Ravens agreed to a five-year deal with their first-round selection, offensive tackle Michael Oher, late Wednesday night, joining the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets as the only NFL organizations to come to terms with their entire rookie draft classes. Terms of the contract were not released, but Oher, the 23rd overall pick in April's draft, is expected to fly in from Memphis, Tenn., today and travel to the team hotel in Westminster. He is expected to sign the deal, take a physical and join the club on its administrative day. If there is no obstacle, Oher could suit up and practice Friday, when the franchise has its first full-team practice.

Despite a much-improved left ankle, offensive tackle Adam Terry will remain a reserve for the Ravens' Monday night game against the undefeated New England Patriots at M&T Bank Stadium. Terry, who had been projected as the team's starting right tackle after the free-agent departure of Tony Pashos to the Jacksonville Jaguars, will continue to back up left tackle Jonathan Ogden and right tackle Marshal Yanda. Much of the reasoning behind the team's decision to sit Terry in place of Yanda for last Sunday's 32-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers was based on Terry's sprained ankle, which he initially injured against the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 7 and hurt again against the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 18. "It's coming along," Terry said Thursday.

Four-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Willie Anderson confirmed last night that he will fly to Baltimore today to sign a three-year contract with the Ravens. "I'm looking forward to coming in and fitting in and doing whatever I can to help this team," Anderson said from his home in Atlanta. "I'm not trying to come in with an ego or anything, just coming in and trying to work hard and do my part. It's definitely exciting for me. It's a new challenge." The deal, first reported by The Cincinnati Enquirer, is worth $11 million over the length of the contract.

On the surface, the transition that Ravens' second-year offensive lineman Ryan Jensen is attempting to make looks like a daunting task. Jensen, however, looks at it more like a great opportunity. Ravens officials approached Jensen, who was initially being groomed as a center, earlier this offseason and told him that they'd like him to move outside and give offensive tackle a try. To Jensen, it was a no-brainer. The Ravens already had four other centers on their roster, including Jeremy Zuttah who was acquired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March to start.

The timing couldn't have been much worse for offensive tackle James Hurst when he broke his left leg during North Carolina's bowl game in late December. As a senior last season, Hurst was projected by draft analysts to land in either the second or third round, until he got hurt. Because of the injury, Hurst could not play in the Senior Bowl or participate in the NFL scouting combine. And he still wasn't 100 percent by his pro day workout this spring. If not for that unfortunate set of circumstances, Hurst probably would have been drafted instead of being signed to a free-agent deal by the Ravens this week.

Members of The Baltimore Sun's staff take a moment to grade the draft overall for the Ravens as they prepare for the upcoming season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter Grade: C+ I was reminded of the risk of immediately grading draft picks when baltimoresun.com put up PDF files of past post-draft editions and the 2002 version was decidely lukewarm on the Ed Reed selection .

When the three-day draft ended and the Ravens had made the last of their nine selections, there was just as much talk about what needs they didn't address as those they did. Despite saying there is a wide receiver the Ravens could take in every round, general manager Ozzie Newsome didn't select one with any of his original eight picks, though the team did trade for a seventh-round pick and select local product Michael Campanaro (River Hill)....

Since the Ravens have spent much of the offseason in a wide-ranging attempt to upgrade an uneven offense, it might seem logical to assume that they will shift the emphasis to the other side of the ball when this year's NFL draft begins Thursday night. The team needs help in key defensive areas, to be sure, but the front office should continue to focus on building an elite offense around Joe Flacco if the Ravens really want to bounce off last season's .500 record and contend immediately for another Super Bowl title.

The Ravens did the unexpected Saturday - something team officials never envisioned before the start of the NFL draft - when they moved up to select Mississippi offensive tackle Michael Oher with the 23rd overall pick. While many predicted the Ravens would target other positions in the first round - tight end, wide receiver, cornerback and inside linebacker - they reacted aggressively to grab Oher, trading a fifth-round pick to the New England Patriots to jump three spots.

TAMPA, Fla. - Who says dealing with ticket requests and media masses during Super Bowl week gets old? Not Harry Swayne. "Definitely not old," the Ravens' right offensive tackle said of returning to the Super Bowl for the fourth time in his 14-year career. "I could come back every year." No Raven has been so fortunate, but Swayne, who will turn 36 on Feb. 2, represents the team's elder statesman in Super Bowl experience. (Tight end Shannon Sharpe is in his third.) Thus far, Swayne is 2-for-3 in the Super Bowl, winning the championship with the 1997 and 1998 Denver Broncos and losing with the 1994 San Diego Chargers.

The Ravens have arrived at a rare moment in franchise history. When free agency starts at 4 p.m. Tuesday, the Ravens will have the most financial flexibility they've had since coach John Harbaugh was hired six years ago. The Ravens are carrying $21.987 million in salary cap space, according to NFL Players Association figures. Only 12 other NFL teams have more room under the league limit of $133 million. The Ravens now have plenty of spending power should they choose to veer slightly from their usual tradition of bargain-hunting.

The Ravens have met with Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and Virginia offensive tackle Morgan Moses at the NFL scouting combine. Kouandjio is a 6-foot-5, 322-pound native of Cameroon who grew up playing soccer before becoming a Parade Magazine All-American at DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville. He had 14 knockdown blocks last season and allowed just 1.5 sacks and was named a Walter Camp All-American selection. "I like the Ravens," Kouandjio said of his meeting with the Ravens.
