2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Gino Gradkowski, OG, Delaware
This pick by Baltimore really feels like a regional scout getting his guy. Remember, Joe Flacco played at Delaware and this could be a player they've had their eye on for a couple of years now.
Gradkowski was a FCS All-American as a senior. He stated in a pre-draft interview that he felt Baltimore would be a good situation for him where he could learn behind veteran Matt Birk. Gradkowski is described as very coachable and plays with a mean streak. He is detail oriented, watches lots of game film and focuses on fundamentals. While lacking ideal athleticism or size, Gradkowski moves well in space and can pull in either direction. Maintains great pad level and identifies blitzes well pre-snap.
Gradkowski established himself as a commodity by scheduling many team workouts leading up to the draft. Getting his name out there and putting in the work pre-draft earned him his spot with the Ravens.
