Ravens Insider: Ravens take Washington OT Roger Rosengarten with No. 62 pick in second round of 2024 NFL draft


Recommended Posts

Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta was blunt in his answer Thursday night when asked if he felt Baltimore could get an offensive linemen who could contribute immediately in Friday’s second round of the NFL draft.

“Yes, I do,” he said.

So, no surprise here as the Ravens selected Roger Rosengarten of Washington with the 62nd overall pick.

With three starters from last season’s line having departed via free agency or trade, the unit is perhaps the Ravens’ biggest need in terms of sheer volume. Gone are guards John Simpson and Kevin Zeitler, signing lucrative deals with the New York Jets and Detroit Lions, respectively, while right tackle Morgan Moses was dealt to the Jets in a draft pick swap.

The Ravens have also drafted at least two offensive linemen in six of the past eight drafts, so it was hardly a surprise that they continued that trend late in the second round.

After selecting Clemson cornerback Nate Wiggins with the 30th overall pick on Thursday, offensive line help became their next priority. And with more than a handful of defensive tackles and cornerbacks chosen in the second round, it easily became a reality.

The 6-foot-5, 308-pound Rosengarten was part of a unit that won the Joe Moore Award, given to the nation’s top offensive line, last season. He started all 15 games at right tackle in 2023 and 28 for his career.
