This is from the Baltimore Sun almost a year ago regarding Michael Oher:
"You can instantly tell that Oher is a mauler, especially when it comes to run blocking. He has great quickness and explosion. He gets off the ball well. But he is going to have to work on his technique as far as pass blocking
. He needs to sink his hips more which means he gets way too high. He also lunges and gets overextended a lot."
And then look at this post in the Baltimore Sun dated August 1, 2009:
"I have a feeling the Ravens are going to be doing a lot of chip blocking with tight end Todd Heap and right offensive tackle Michael Oher early in the season. Oher struggled again this morning getting into his pass set, and was beaten a couple of times to the inside.
Until he improves, the Ravens better get him some help to keep second-year quarterback Joe Flacco healthy."
From this, would Michael Oher be viewed as BUST at that time because his pass blocking needs work? Rookie OTs take time to work on pass blocking but run blocking is not an issue. Oher was like that and I believe Davis will be. But far too early to say bust!
