Draft Scout Kelechi Osemele News
09/07/15 - OG Kelechi Osemele struggled with an Achilles injury for much of the past month. However, he appears to be ready for the opener at Denver. This is good news for the Ravens, who planned on the offensive line being the strength of their team.
09/01/15 - G Kelechi Osemele was able to practice this week after dealing with foot and Achilles injuries. He had not seen any action since playing against New Orleans in the first preseason game Aug. 13. Osemele is a vital part of the offensive line and the Ravens did not want to rush him back into action. "I think we're going to err on the side of making sure he is ready to go," head coach John Harbaugh said.
08/27/15 - LG Kelechi Osemele (Achilles) will miss the game against the Redskins. He was one of six offensive linemen to miss practice this week. However, G-T Ryan Jensen (undisclosed) and LT James Hurst (concussion) did return Thursday. Head coach John Harbaugh said the injuries likely won't affect the number of reps for quarterback Joe Flacco.
"If something happens in the game, it possibly could," Harbaugh said. "But the way we're going into the game - to start the game - we're comfortable with the guys that are going to play and start on the offensive line," Harbaugh said. "(We think) that they'll do a great job."
08/10/15 - G Kelechi Osemele was able to participate in drills Aug. 10 and appears to have recovered from an ankle/foot injury he suffered last week. Osemele is expected to start on one of the deepest offensive lines in the NFL. The Ravens coaches are expecting him to have a huge season. "(Osemele) wants to be a Pro Bowl player," offensive line coach Juan Castillo said. "He wants to be recognized by his peers as one of the best guards in the NFL."
06/17/15 - G Kelechi Osemele's four-year, $3.356 million rookie contract is set to expire after this season, and the former second-round draft pick is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.
Although he hasn't been named to a Pro Bowl, Osemele's body of work has established himself as one of the best young offensive linemen in the game after starting as a rookie on the Ravens' Super Bowl championship team.
"I feel really good about what I've shown," said Osemele, a 6-foot-5, 330-pound former All-Big 12 selection at Iowa State. "Obviously, it helps to come in here and win a Super Bowl. That's always a good thing, but, on top of that, I've had great teammates and a great coaching staff behind me.
"(Offensive line) coach (Juan) Castillo has been helping me every day, working on my craft. I came in here a raw player, and, right now, I'm feeling like I'm becoming more of a technician. So, I'm feeling really good about that. I'll let my agent handle the contract, and I kind of just focus on my part."
