Rookie will play 'substantial' role

Will rookie Kelechi Osemele start or will he be a backup?

The offensive lineman also known as "KO," who has surprised even his Ravens coaches with his ability to play at guard and tackle, is only certain hell be able to make an impact early.

The Ravens open the seasons Sept. 10 at home vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.

The feel that Im getting is Ill pretty much have a substantial role as far as how my preseason went, said Osemele, who played left tackle at Iowa State. Not really sure how things are going to go as far as starting or at what point.

Im pretty sure Ill be moved around a little just for depth reasons and experience reasons because they want me to be versatile. As the season progresses and we kind of know our guys then Ill probably be at one spot.

Osemele played at right tackle for the Ravens during the preseason and both guard positions, including filling in on the left side for Bobbie Williams, a 13-year veteran who has struggled with returning to form after breaking his ankle late last year.

I had a preference for tackle. Now that Ive played guard I actually like it. I actually think its a little bit easier, Osemele said. You dont have the range difficulties at guard. You dont face the same type of athletes that you do at tackle. It makes it easier.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Left guard competition heating up

Kick off your Monday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. The Ravens are still looking for a left guard and the competition is "wide open" according to Ravens media. Last week, Coach Harbaugh tried out 2017 fifth-round pick Jermaine Eluemunor in the spot, acknowledging his hard work there.

2. Linebacker Kenny Young is expected to be a big playmaker this season. Now that C.J. Mosley is gone, Young is expected to fill that void. “I’m not going to make expectations for myself so soon, but what I expect to do right from the get-go is compete hard and make plays,” Young said to Ravens media. “My expectation is to make plays. That’s it. Make plays.”

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. ET deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
