Michael Oher, offensive lineman

<b>GS: 16 | GP: 16 | Snaps: 1,134</b><br>
<br>
<b>Season in review:</b> Few Ravens were scrutinized more last season than Oher, who started all 16 regular-season games at left tackle. It was the third position switch in as many seasons for Oher, who has yet to find a permanent home at either tackle spot. Oher had some bright spots, but the offensive line was at its best in the playoffs after coach John Harbaugh inserted Bryant McKinnie at left tackle and moved Oher back to the right side.<br>
<br>
<b>Signature moment:</b> Oher took his position change in stride and did well in pass protection during the playoffs, allowing just one sack and six pressures in four playoff games, according to Pro Football Focus. He protected particularly well in road wins in Denver and New England.<br>
<br>
<b>Stat that stands out:</b> 10 -- sacks allowed by Oher during the regular season, tied for third-most in the NFL per to PFF.<br>
<br>
<b>Pro Football Focus grade:</b> -11.5 overall | +3.7 as a pass blocker | -17.1 as a run blocker | +1.9 penalty.
Outlook for 2013 and beyond: Some fans might not like the sound of this, but as of right now, Oher projects to be the starting left tackle when training camp begins. That could change, though, if the Ravens bring back McKinnie or draft a left tackle in this month's NFL draft. There are much worse blind-side protectors around the league than Oher, but it seems pretty clear that he is at this best when he is over at right tackle.
