Oher is a dominant tackle who is a tremendous athlete presented in a massive frame. He’s an outstanding pass protector who blocks with a wide base, has quick feet and easily knocks the opposition off their rush. He gets off the line well and is able to push defenders back in run situations. He demonstrates great balance, patience and passion for the game.

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis Baltimore got a nice value here with Oher who might initially play on the right side to compete for the starting job against veteran Willie Anderson. It's certainly possible that the coaches move Oher to the left side to compete against incumbent starter Jared Gaither, but Anderson may not have much left in the tank to play more than one another season.
