Wow, Ozzie completely forgot about that whole Alabama/Auburn thing on Saturday. With the Ravens first pick, they selected Auburn’s Ben Grubb, a 6’3″, 315 pound guard the Ravens expect to be their guard of the future.
There were other players available at this spot, but the Ravens, as always, choice the best player available, but at a needed position. Grubb jumps into a spot that may be vacated if the Ravens decide to let Keydrick Vincent go . If the Ravens decide to keep Vincent, Grubb can sit and watch, or “get in where he fits in.” Whatever role Grubbs plays in his rookie year, Raven fans can be sure that he will eventually play a very significant role for this franchise.
