Potential Ravens Target Struggles at Combine

koumandijo

INDIANAPOLIS — Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandijo’s draft stock likely took a hit when he struggled during the Crimson Tide’s Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma, and he hasn’t helped by his week in Indianapolis.

Kouandijo is widely regarded as one of the top tackle prospects in this year’s NFL draft and looked like a potential fit for the Ravens because of their need for help along the offensive line, but he tested out horribly Saturday and apparently failed his physical with several teams.

According to NFL.com, Kouandijo, a Hyattsville native, has an arthritic knee, stemming from a failed surgery.

He did still work out, but his 40-yard dash time (5.59 seconds) was the slowest among offensive line. He also got just 21 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, which was tied for second-fewest among offensive linemen.

    Kuandjio, Stock fell Dramatically. But You know who blew the COMBINE AWAY?? Thats right, the 2 most impressive Physically Dominant Offensive Players in College Football this year. The film backs it up and now the combine does, MIKE
    EVANS, and ERIC EBRON!!! Both Ravens targets and now the only legit first round options… 1of these 2 fine ball players must be had for this team.

    Yea but they could be gone.I still like Lee an awful a lot as ell if Evans is off the board.Does what Jacoby does but better or at least much more consistent. PS…Don’t you just know Dallas is going to screw us again by trading with the Jets in front of us and steal a WR or TE that we like.
