Height/Weight: 6’7″/305 lbs.
Age: 24/Experience: Rookie
Analysis: Rookie tackle Devin Tyler was signed by the Ravens on August 1 of this year after originally signing as an undrafted free agent in Arizona and then being waived July 28.
The big offensive lineman is a Maryland native who spent his college years at Temple and was recognized for his improvement in the weight room during his five year tenure. Tyler was awarded the 2009 most improved player after gaining 93 pounds in college. He was selected as Temple’s 2009 offensive player of the year and named as the team’s fifth team captain his senior year.
2010 Outlook: With Jared Gaither’s looming back injury the Ravens may have bigger plans for Devin Tyler than they previously expected. Oniel Cousins and Michael Oher are the obvious candidates to fill in for Gaither, but if Tyler proves himself at camp and during the preseason games he may earn a roster spot on this team.
