Stanley compiled a strong rookie season after being selected sixth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, grading out as the 26th-best offensive tackle out of 78 eligible candidates, according to Pro Football Focus.
While preparing for the upcoming season, Stanley gained high praise from Hall of Fame tackle Jonathan Ogden, who spent his entire career with the Ravens.
“He told me to just keep doing what I’m doing,” Stanley said via ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. “He likes what he sees, so I’m happy with that.”
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh echoed Ogden’s sentiments.
“I would say probably out of all the offensive linemen, he asks the best questions out of anybody I have been around – certainly any young player,” Harbaugh said.
Stanley is one of the NFL’s best young tackles and it appears he could be destined for greatness after living up to his lofty draft position.
