NFL Draft Ravens Pick Jermaine Eluemunor

After addressing the offensive line in the fourth round, the Baltimore Ravens went back to the trenches in round five, selecting Texas A&M offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor.

Originally from England, Eluemunor is about as raw of a prospect as the Ravens could get in the fifth round, and he will be a developmental project at both guard and tackle. Eluemunor did not work his way into the Texas A&M starting lineup until 2016, starting nine games at right tackle and three games at right guard.

The Ravens consistently value versatility in offensive lineman prospects, and Eluemunor fits the mold as a player who has starts under his belt both at guard and tackle. One of the stronger prospects on the offensive line in this year’s draft, Eluemunor has the measurables to succeed in the NFL, and very well may pan out in time.

In the short term, it is unlikely that Eluemunor makes much of an impact early in his NFL career. Similar to the Ryan Jensen selection in 2013, Eluemunor is a raw, athletic, undeveloped prospect who will take a few seasons to reach his potential.

Contrary to Nico Siragusa – Baltimore’s fourth-round selection – Eluemunor has a long way to go before starting in the NFL. But given his experience at multiple positions up front, he can develop to be a swing backup guard/tackle, which is worth a fifth-round draft choice.
