4. Tyus Bowser
Williams and Tyus Bowser are in a very similar boat. Bowser looked more NFL ready than Williams in his rookie season, despite not making a huge mark. Bowser had three sacks and an interception. He showed flashes of brilliance, he showed that the stage wasn’t too big for him, but he failed to be a game changer for the Ravens. Judon and Suggs ran the show on the edge for the Ravens. Bowser got in when he could.
There is some speculation that Bowser could move to inside linebacker. It is a move that didn’t work out too well for Kamalei Correa, and one that the Ravens haven’t hinted towards. If Bowser did move to inside linebacker, he would get more snaps and his production would rise. This would also give the Ravens too unbelievably athletic linebackers in the middle of their defense.
The Ravens still have Suggs, but the future of the Ravens outside linebacker position is still not locked in. The Ravens have always had a great tradition at this position. In addition to Suggs, Peter Boulware and Jarret Johnson have been legends for the purple and black. Judon looks like the next great outside linebacker. Can Bowser enter that pantheon of stars?
