Andrew Wylie
Not sure what happened but Andrew did not sign with the Ravens as expected nor is he listed as a tryout player for them. He posted a cryptic tweet about everything happening for a reason. Interesting.

Hmmmmm. I'm sure he'll get another shot with another team, if he wants it. Unless something came up in a medical/physical exam?

Best of luck to him. Thought he really had a legit shot in the NFL.

RE: Andrew Wylie
I hope he still gets his chance. My guess is that there was a physical problem. Maybe they detected something.

He did wear one of those shoulder harnesses during the year. Never missed any time though, and did everything at his pro day.

Gardner actually had the more public shoulder issues, wore a harness as well I believe, but he participated just fine in the Buccaneers recent camp.

Assume the Lions have already cleared OC's shoulder. Doubt they would spend a draft pick on him without putting him through the full battery of medical tests and MRI's etc.

It's a tryout according to this.

All he needs is a chance. Really on the same level as the UDFA'S since they usually only pay those guys peanuts anyways. Looks like they drafted 1 OT, and signed 2 G's and 1 OT as free agents.

He's got 3 days to stand out and differentiate himself.

Their 4th round pick was Zach Banner from USC. He's projected as a boom/bust type of player because he's a giant 6'8 360 and has had a lot of issues with his weight.

Deyshawn Bond is one UDFA OG/C from Cincinnati that stands 6'1 300. Is there another 6'1 lineman anywhere in the NFL? Can't believe he's gonna make the cut. Wylie will make him look like a midget, as well as the rest of the OL in camp.

Christopher Muller is an OG out of Rutgers who is similar to Wylie at 6'5.5 and 315. Honorable mention All Big 10, so this is likely Wylie's biggest competition.

Jerry Ugokwe is a project from tiny William & Mary, who didn't even play football till his junior year in high school. Massive 6'7.5 321 OT. Wylie likely projects as a G in NFL so not sure this guy is direct competition. Poor combine numbers and he looks really slow in drills. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJm6Ox2Rf2s

Wylie should stand out as one of the most athletic linemen out there. As long as his technique holds up he should have a good shot.

Good luck Andrew!!
