With the 60th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens selected Iowa State Cyclones offensive tackle/guard Kelechi Osemele. Osemele entered the draft as the No. 40 overall prospect on the board and the third-ranked guard, according to Mocking the Draft's rankings.
Osemele was a four-year starter at Iowa State, where he was asked to play multiple positions during his college career. He was named first-team All-Big 12 in his senior season. He's a huge lineman at 6-foot-5 and 333 pounds, and he could play either tackle or guard in the NFL. He has experience at both positions and has been projected by most as a guard in the pros, but could play right tackle as well.
The Ravens traded out of the first round and used the 35th pick in the second round to select Alabama defensive end Courtney Upshaw. Osemele helps fill the void left by Ben Grubbs' departure in free agency.
