Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley, the sixth pick in the 2016 draft, has faced some criticism for the perception he won’t always roll up his sleeves and rumble. On Saturday afternoon, Stanley has done just that, albeit on Twitter.
In the wake of a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter that the Ravens would have taken Laremy Tunsil over Stanley but for the gas-mask-and-bong video that surfaced right before the draft began, Stanley said this: “Hey Adam, you’re wrong.”
Stanley obviously cares about the report because it creates the impression that he was viewed as a fallback to Tunsil, propelled to the sixth pick only by Tunsil’s bizarre misfortune. Which suggests that the Ravens have told Stanley that he was their guy, regardless of the video.
Even if Tunsil really would have been the pick.
