Michael Oher may be one of the few Ravens players who has as much notoriety off the field as he has on it. Oher’s life story was the subject of the hit movie The Blind Side which starred Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock, and the book of the same name, written by Michael Lewis. While the movie was becoming a box-office smash, Oher was winning rave reviews as a rookie starter at right tackle for the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens’ first-round pick in the 2009 draft had a solid rookie season playing mostly on the right side of the line, while subbing for Jared Gaither at left tackle, his natural position, for a few games while Gaither was injured.
2010 Outlook: With Gaither’s reliability in question whether because of injury or want of a new contract, Oher did work at left tackle during OTA’s and minicamps. Oher will more than likely begin the season at right tackle, but may end up at left tackle sooner rather than later, depending on how things go with Gaither. With one season under his belt, the team will be looking for Oher to remain solid and even improve upon his impressive rookie season.
