Ronnie Stanley – Baltimore Ravens #79

Baltimore Ravens #79

Ronnie Stanley was born on 18th March 1994, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He played his college football with the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and as a sophomore in 2013, he was part of an offensive line that allowed just eight sacks – the second fewest in league. He almost entered the 2015 NFL Draft but ultimately decided to play his senior year of college and instead entered the 2016 NFL Draft.

He was selected as the sixth overall pick by the Baltimore Ravens, who signed him to a four-year deal. He started his rookie season as the starting Left Tackle. He started in 12 games, missing four with a foot injury. He was rated as the seventeenth best left tackle in the league in his rookie season.

In 2017, Stanley was again named as the starting LT by head coach, John Harbaugh. He suffered a concussion in week nine, playing fifteen games for the Ravens and moved up to be considered the thirteenth best left tackle in the NFL. 2018 was very similar, as he played in 15 games, missing one with an ankle injury.

In 2019, the Ravens took up the fifth-year option on Stanley’s contract and he was called up to his first Pro Bowl, with some experts now considering him to be the best LT in the NFL.
