Jah Reid, offensive lineman
GS: 7 | GP: 9 | Snaps: 586
Season in review: The Ravens hoped that Reid, a third-round pick in 2011, would secure a starting spot on the offensive line during training camp, but he was sidelined with a calf injury and missed the first two months of the season. When he was finally healthy enough to play, he started at left guard, though he didn't exactly seize the position. Reid was placed on injured reserve after injuring his toe late in the season.
Signature moment: After a rocky game against the San Diego Chargers in Week 12, Reid bounced back to play much better the next week, allowing just one quarterback pressure in a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Stat that stands out: 16 -- quarterback pressures allowed by Reid in eight games, per Pro Football Focus.
Pro Football Focus grade: -4.6 overall | -0.9 as a pass blocker | -2.3 as a run blocker | -1.4 penalty.
Outlook for 2013 and beyond: Reid is one of several young offensive linemen who should compete for playing time next season, though it is unclear exactly where he will fit. Kelechi Osemele played well at left guard after Reid injured his toe and could remain at the position, though Ozzie Newsome said Tuesday that Osemele couuld move to left tackle. Michael Oher could stay at right tackle. That being said, the Ravens always say they will play their best five offensive linemen. If he shows improvement, they will try to find a spot for him somewhere.
