Baltimore Ravens: Who deserves a 2018 Pro Bowl nod?
With Marshal Yanda returning to the Ravens offensive line in 2018, he has been the only player keeping the interior of the line from collapsing regularly. If only Yanda could play both guard spots and center… Either way, Yanda has been just as good in 2018 as he was before his injury shortened 2017 campaign.

When healthy, Marshal Yanda had a legitimate claim to being the best offensive linemen in football regardless of position. While he is another year older (34-years old), he’s shown he has plenty left in the tank to continue being a staple for Baltimore. To reward his efforts, a Pro Bowl selection is more than appreciated for the future Hall of Famer. Of course, his cause is helped thanks to name recognition among fans. Yanda should be a lock to make it back to the Pro Bowl in 2018.
Perhaps Ronnie Stanley has been the Ravens best offensive linemen in 2018. High praise considering Marshal Yanda is playing on the other side of him, but he’s definitely earned an argument for this title at a minimum.
Since being selected sixth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, Ravens fans have been eagerly awaiting the day the rest of the NFL caught up to Stanley and appreciated his play. 2018 may finally be that year, as Stanley has been one of the best pass protectors for an offense that has been extremely effective throwing the football. The Ravens have seen how much they miss Stanley when he’s banged up and he is clearly one of the most valuable pieces to the offense. Here’s hoping Stanley gets a Pro Bowl nod in 2018.
