Potential, Potential, Potential. Zach Sieler is absolutely oozing with potential.
Sieler is a mammoth of a man at 6’6″ 290-lbs. At the combine, Sieler ran a 4.83 40-yard dash and put up 31 reps on the bench. Need I say more? Sieler, a walk on at Ferris State, didn’t even play football his first two years at the school. He walked on to the team, and dominated. In 2016, Sieler had 19.5 sacks, 29.5 tackles for loss, and five forced fumbles. He followed that up with another seven sack season in 2017. It was after his ridiculous performance at Michigan’s Pro Day that his phone started ringing.
Sieler truly is a diamond in the rough, and a player who the Ravens need to keep around. If Sieler is kept, that likely leaves Carl Davis and/or Bronson Kaufusi without a roster spot, which shouldn’t be a problem given Sieler’s performance so far this preseason.
He’s a monster on the inside, with the ability to play either nose tackle or defensive tackle. He has a very real chance to join Brandon Williams and Willie Henry as breakout stars along the Ravens defensive line.
Bradley Bozeman, a sixth round pick by the Ravens in 2018, is a player who should get a fair chance in the NFL. The Alabama product was a starter as a junior and a Team Captain as a senior, so it’s clear that he can play with the best of them.
Bozeman is best described in one word: Solid. He’s not going to wow you with athletic ability or put up eye popping numbers during a workout, but at 6’5″ 315-lbs. Bozeman gets the job done. He has the ability to be play center and lead a team’s offensive line, or slide over to guard and continue to be just as effective. He’s a player who understands techniques, leverage, hip and hand placement, and just about everything else that goes into playing offensive line.
He’s a technician, and it’s obvious he was coached up well at Alabama. Bozeman would provide remarkable depth for the interior of the offensive line and could really flourish if he ever got the chance to play consistently at center.
