Ravens take OL Wagner in 5th round of NFL draft
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP)
The Baltimore Ravens have selected Wisconsin offensive lineman Ricky Wagner in the fifth round of the NFL draft.
The 6-foot-6, 308-pound Wagner was the 168th overall pick, a compensatory selection awarded by the league. Baltimore traded its own fifth-rounder on Friday night to Seattle.
Wagner played left tackle for the Badgers, but he is also capable of lining up at guard. In spite of a knee injury, Wagner missed only one game as a senior last season.
It is unlikely that Wagner can start in his first NFL season. He can, however, provide depth on the line - especially if the Ravens fail to re-sign left tackle Bryant McKinnie.
