"Man who votes for the Top 100," Oher wrote on his Twitter account. "I can't Believe Marshal Yanda didn't make it. If the players voted he would have been top 20!!
"I'm shocked," he continued. "The guy was easily the most dominant Offensive lineman in the league last year easy!! 1st team All pro but whatever!"
Oher is one of the most well respected guys in the Ravens' locker room because he's tough, he doesn't complain and he sticks up for teammates on and off the field. So it's completely in his character to take up for Yanda in this case.
But it's probably worth pointing out a few things about the voting. Only six offensive linemen were recognized from picks 11 to 100, and only one of them was a guard – the New England Patriots' Logan Mankins who was 82nd. The other offensive linemen selected were tackles Joe Thomas (Cleveland Browns, 28th), Duane Brown (Houston Texans, 48th), Joe Staley (San Francisco 49ers, 78th) and Trent Williams (Washington Redskins, 99th) and center Max Unger (Seattle Seahawks, 95th).
Guys that play the more glamorous positions are obviously the ones that get more recognition, evidenced by the fact that 11 quarterbacks have already been ranked and that does not include Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers who are expected to be unveiled in the top 10.
