Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Michael Oher wasn't the first offensive tackle off the board, but the Mississippi product should make an immediate impact at right tackle. There have been questions about his ability to pick up the offense, but Oher is a physical, determined lineman who will maul defenders. A closer look at the Ravens' picks: Round 1/23 -- Michael Oher, OT, 6-4, 309, Mississippi...The Ravens never expected Oher to fall into the second half of the first round. Team officials had rated him among the top 15 prospects in the draft. Thinking the Buffalo Bills might jump over them to get Oher, the Ravens traded a fifth-round pick to the New England Patriots to move from No. 26 to No. 23. Oher slipped because some questioned his intelligence, but the Ravens stressed that he is tough-minded. He will compete with Willie Anderson for the starting right tackle job. - by The Sports Xchange
