Menelik Watson, Florida State
Ideally, the Ravens would take a look at Menelik Watson in the second round, but his draft stock may force them to think about him even earlier.
Watson is one of just a handful of second-tier players with left tackle potential. Players with his athletic ability are rare, so despite his relative inexperience, Watson will be a hot commodity.
The Ravens need to determine if they could turn Watson's upside into production. If they feel confident, Watson could be a worthy first-round selection. Their need at left tackle is great enough to take that risk.
D.J. Fluker, Alabama
Though Fluker doesn't have left tackle potential, he is a mauler who would be a great fit on the right side for the Ravens.
At 339 pounds, Fluker is among the biggest tackles in the draft, and he plays like it. He also possesses freakishly long arms that help him keep pass rushers at bay and manhandle opponents in the ground game.
Grabbing Fluker in the first would allow the Ravens to keep Kelechi Osemele at his more natural guard position, upgrading two positions in one pick.
Terron Armstead, Arkansas Pine-Bluff
If the Ravens are serious about getting a potential left tackle, Terron Armstead would be a perfect fit later in the draft. His athleticism and raw ability is second-to-none, but his level of competition is a concern.
On the positive side, the Ravens could afford to let Armstead sit and learn for a year with Michael Oher or possibly even Bryant McKinnie manning the left side. With time, Armstead could be a real find in the second or third round.
David Quessenberry, San Jose State
Another potential left tackle, Quessenberry has the requisite speed and foot-quickness to man the blindside. He'll need some seasoning and added strength, but Quessenberry has all the natural ability to succeed.
Like Armstead, Quessenberry would be a better fit for the Ravens a year from now, but he's worth a shot as a potential starter at left tackle down the road.
