My gut instincts tells me that Eugene Monroe maybe too small to be the Ravens style at left tackle. He not big enough to maul people like what J. Ogden did in the pass and run game, which is what made him great. The O-line didn't get any better after the acquisition of Monroe.
Defensive ends now a days are a lot bigger and stronger. So it make sense if there are more better bigger and stronger options.
My solution in Free Agency: Jared Valdheer. His size 6'8" and 321 he can easily maul people having him and KO on the left side will make our O-Line considerably better.
If we sign Valdheer our O-line would be the nastiest in the NFL. Valdheer - K.O. - Yanda and whoever our Center and Right Tackle is will be along for the ride.
Please, Please, Please, strongly consider getting Jared Valdheer to be our left tackle!
Our O-line will be in better shape if we have maulers so we can get back to Ravens style of Smashmouth football!
