Did the Ravens discover the Next Michael Oher?

We are all very familiar with the story of Michael Oher not only here in Baltimore but throughout the country. Michael Lewis’ book, The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game and then later Hollywood in a movie based on the book starring Sandra Bullock made sure of it.

Clearly Oher’s story is fascinating, enabled by the selflessness of the Tuohy Family.

Could it be that the Ravens have discovered a candidate who might serve as the subject of The Blind Side sequel in recently drafted tackle Ramon Harewood?

Harewood, a native of Barbados was not introduced to football, never played a down until his freshman year in 2007 at Morehouse College in Atlanta. Harewood arrived at Morehouse on an academic scholarship but this video describes, the Barbadian was convinced that he could put his size to use for the betterment of his family.

This will undoubtedly be one of the more interesting and developing stories to observe during training camp and the preseason.

Perhaps we'll see that during the games if the team had really discovered the next Michael in him. With his size, he could really make use of it as he play.
