Selection: Baltimore Ravens select Notre Dame OT Ronnie Stanley

Analysis: Many people projected Ole Miss' Laremy Tunsil to be the top tackle off the board, but Stanley earned those honors. Stanley's stock was trending upward in the days leading to the draft and some of Tunsil's off-field issues probably didn't help his cause.

Stanley possesses length, athleticism and experience (40 starts in college). He needs to add strength and refine his technique but he projects as a long-time starter in the NFL.
