5 Ravens Who Don’t Get Enough Credit
4 of 5
4. Tavon Young
For his rookie season, saying that Tavon Young did a respectable job would be an understatement.
Young started the 2016 season fighting for playing time, but he quickly moved up the depth chart. With Jimmy Smith failing to stay healthy, and Shareece Wright struggling, Young ended up starting 11 games during the season.
Young got time playing in the slot and on the corners. He was not spectacular by any means, but as a fourth round pick who was thrown into the fire he responded brilliantly.
Sometimes it takes years for young secondary players to adjust to the NFL, and some can never do it (hello, Matt Elam and Terrance Brooks). Young proved that he can play in the NFL, and his rookie season cannot be forgotten by the Ravens.
