After Marshal Yanda opted to retire after 13 seasons and eight Pro Bowl selections, the Ravens faced a significant vacancy at right guard that needed to be filled.
Throughout training camp, the competition for that starting position was one of the fiercest.
In the end, rookie third-round pick Tyre Phillips from Mississippi State won the job over seasoned D.J. Fluker.
Despite having an ankle issue earlier in the week, Phillips played brilliantly in the season opener against the Browns.
Phillips is displaying the potential to establish himself as a pillar of the offensive line eventually.
The fact that Phillips played left tackle for Mississippi State is even more astounding.
Phillips had a team-high 821 snaps and started all 13 of the games last season (819 at left tackle and two at left guard).
He received the second-highest offensive grade on the team and the highest offensive grade among Mississippi State offensive linemen from Pro Football Focus (80.1).
Because of his athleticism, the Ravens shifted him to guard, believing he will improve each week.
