Tennessee State OG Robert Meyers Drafted By Baltimore Ravens With Pick #176

The Ravens believe that Myers has enough potential to contribute.

Te Ravens had two compensatory picks in the fifth round, and opted to take an FCS player with both of them. Only four picks after selecting Deleware TE Nick Boyle, they chose Tennessee State guard Robert Myers.

Myers has been described as a project. Strong and able to recognize defensive schemes, he seems to only struggle when defenders go wide on him.

Smarts and potential seem to be the thing Boyle and Myers have in common, so clearly the Ravens have faith that offensive line coach Juan Castillo can form NFL caliber blockers when given enough clay. With a little bit of muscle mass, and understanding of lateral blocking schemes, Myers should be able to hold a roster spot, and eventually even work his way into the rotation on the line.
