The Ravens will be keeping an eye on Oklahoma left offensive tackle Lane Johnson.
He is rated the third-best at the position in the draft, and a lot of the experts have predicted he will go in the top 10 picks, but the Ravens might trade up for him at a reasonable cost. The Ravens have some options because they have 12 picks.
Johnson is athletic, durable and the pro scouts like his demeanor. He plays with the nastiness of a defensive lineman.

After investing so much money in quarterback Joe Flacco during the offseason, the Ravens need a top player to protect his blind side. Veteran Bryant McKinnie is still an option for the Ravens, but they prefer to have a player with more stability at left tackle, which is the most glaring weakness on offense.
McKinnie has remained relatively quiet this offseason, but when he has spoken, he has often stated he wants to come back as a starter, not a backup.
If the Ravens can get Johnson, it would get rid of two headaches. They would fill a weakness and they could tell McKinnie goodbye.
