Kelechi Osemele: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Osemele, a 2012 second-round draft pick, missed the final nine games of his sophomore campaign and struggled while he was healthy. Given that his poor season came on the heels of a strong rookie year, Osemele should be back as a starter in 2014. He split time between right tackle and left guard as a rookie but was strictly used on the interior last season. With both of the Ravens' starting tackles from 2013 slated for unrestricted free agency, Osemele could be asked to move back outside, though his ceiling is probably higher at guard.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Osemele is expected to start at left guard, after missing most of 2013 due to a back injury. He also has experience at right tackle, which appears to be the weakest spot on Baltimore's offensive line. The Ravens believe that Osemele's ceiling is highest as a guard, but team need may force him to right tackle.
Osemele spent most of his rookie season at right tackle but really shined once he moved to left guard. Although he heads in to the 2013 season as the projected starter at left guard, Osemele could move back to right tackle if the Ravens deal with injuries or ineffectiveness at other positions along the offensive line.
