The Ravens met with Western Kentucky offensive lineman Forrest Lamp. Let's get to know him better.
Tale of the Tape:
Weight: 309 pounds
Strengths: At the NFL Combine, Lamp completed 34 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press, the second-highest total among offensive linemen. He is a physical, run-blocker with great feet and hip positioning. He is a smart lineman who does his homework on his opponents' tendencies and uses that knowledge to his advantage. During his career at Western Kentucky, he was rarely knocked off his feet and onto the ground. He was excellent on stunts and has enough speed and athleticism to be the lead blocker.
Areas for Improvement: He has short arms, which is why many project him as a guard or center at the NFL level. He has had minor leg injuries in the past but no surgeries. He could add some strength to his lower body and improve his technique against speed rushers.
Other Notes: He was named a first-team All-Conference USA lineman during his junior and senior years. Many have compared him to the Dallas Cowboys' Zack Martin, which is fair, as he is just as versatile. He is projected as a guard but could play either tackle position or center. He was voted a two-time captain by his teammates.
Draft Projection: Lamp will be a first-round selection and could be the first offensive lineman selected.
