The Ravens will be keeping an eye on Oklahoma left offensive tackle Lane Johnson.

He is rated the third-best at the position in the draft, and a lot of the experts have predicted he will go in the top 10 picks, but the Ravens might trade up for him at a reasonable cost. The Ravens have some options because they have 12 picks.

Johnson is athletic, durable and the pro scouts like his demeanor. He plays with the nastiness of a defensive lineman.

After investing so much money in quarterback Joe Flacco during the offseason, the Ravens need a top player to protect his blind side. Veteran Bryant McKinnie is still an option for the Ravens, but they prefer to have a player with more stability at left tackle, which is the most glaring weakness on offense.
