The Baltimore Ravens went through a bit of an overhaul to their offensive line in the 2021 offseason. They signed guards Kevin Zeitler and Michael Schofield as well as tackles Alejandro Villanueva and Ja’Wuan James while also bringing in guard Ben Cleveland in the draft.

When asked about how he feels about his new offensive line unit so far, head coach John Harbaugh said that he was ‘very pleased’ with them.

“Right, same thing. Getting those guys that are new, so getting them merged into the offense is a big part of it, and then also watching them play has been a pleasure. They’re all ball, all the time – both of those guys. Whether it’s meeting room, weight room, conditioning [or] on the field work – they’re all ball, all the time. I love that about them. I think they’re going to be a formidable tandem on the right side. I’m really pleased with them so far.”

Many predict that Baltimore’s offensive line from left to right will be Ronnie Stanley, Ben Cleveland, Bradley Bozeman, Kevin Zeitler, and Alejandro Villanueva. If that is indeed the group that starts in Week 1, it would mean a different player would be playing at each position compared to how the line looked in the final game of 2020, with Bradley Bozeman being the only constant, although he was playing left guard, not center.

The Ravens struggled with injuries and some poor play on their line last season. With the talent and depth that they’ve added in 2021, it seems that Baltimore isn’t planning on being thin at the position this year, and Harbaugh is happy with what he’s seen out of his offensive line so far.
