Oher Headed To Baltimore

It may just be the best story out of the NFL Draft.

Michael Oher, literally from the streets of Memphis to multi-millionaire.

Today is the day the left tackle from Ole Miss finds out where the book continues and where he'll take his talents at the next level...

Oher will wear the purple and black of Baltimore, after being selected 23rd by the Ravens in this year's NFL Draft.

The consensus All-American O-lineman helped lead the Rebs to a ranking of 2nd in the SEC in rushing and third in total offense.

The 6'5", 320lb kid out of Briarcrest High school led all SEC blockers with an 87.77% grade for blocking consistency, and produced 99 knockdowns with a league-high seventeen touchdown-resulting blocks.

Oher was also a unanimous All-SEC first-team pick this past season and winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy and one of three finalists for the Outland Trophy, given to the nation's top blocker.

Oher was expected to go early to mid first round, but a lot of teams overlooked him.
