Michael Oher

Remember this name. I circulated this NYT article in 2006 when it came out, about the superhuman giant homeless kid that was being groomed into being the next big thing in the NFL.

What I didnt realize is that the Left Tackle is the second highest paying position on the field, after Quarterback. Apparently it's part of the arms race with the Defensive Backs and a reaction to the likes of Lawrence Taylor etc.

Michael Oher was drafted 23rd in the first round by The Baltimore Ravens this weekend.
