Joe D'Alessandris (pronounced dell-ah-SAN-dress), a 43-year coaching veteran, enters his fifth season as Baltimore's offensive line coach. "Joe D" has extensive experience guiding and developing linemen, both in the collegiate ranks and pros. In his four full seasons in Baltimore, D'Alessandris has mentored several young offensive linemen, including Pro Bowlers Ronnie Stanley and Orlando Brown Jr., who made the switch to left tackle in 2020 after Stanley suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 8 vs. Pit. That season, the Ravens finished as the NFL's top-rated rushing attack (191.9 ypg) for the second-straight season and registered the third-most rushing yards (3,071) in a 16-game season. The Ravens' 24 rushing TDs ranked third in the NFL and set a new single-season franchise record. Entering 2021, Baltimore has rushed for 100+ yards in 39-straight games, marking the second-longest streak in pro football history. Since transitioning into the NFL in 2008, D'Alessandris has mentored players for the Chiefs, Bills, Chargers and Ravens. Prior to his time in the NFL, he tutored players in the NCAA, Canadian Football League and World League.
