The always controversial NFL Top 100 players list has returned, making us wonder which Baltimore Ravens earned a spot on the list.
There’s no list that annoys me more than the NFL’s top 100 player list. Maybe it’s because I find the Baltimore Ravens to be overlooked, but I truly don’t know how it’s made, and neither do others. Is it voted on for the upcoming season? Is it based off 2018 performances? What factors into the votes?
Most importantly, who is voting? As many players have come out and said they’ve never been asked to vote on the list…
Nonetheless, it remains a highly publicized lineup of some of the best players in the league. We may often disagree on the correct order for them, but at least a majority of the time the voters get the players right.
I’m here today to discuss who I believe to be not only the best players on the Baltimore Ravens, but also which of them rank among the 100 best in the league. This was far from an easy decision, as this took a lot of thought as to who is truly a top 100 player in the league and who is just vastly underrated.
For my choices, I tried to eliminate players who are currently on the Ravens roster, as well as who played for the team in 2018. The criteria is based below:
- Not included because they left Baltimore: Terrell Suggs, C.J. Mosley, Za’Darius Smith
- Not included because they spent 2018 with a different team: Earl Thomas, Mark Ingram
Naturally, I still couldn’t fit all the players I believe are among the best of the best without being a tad bit biased, so I included the following as honorable mentions: Brandon Williams, Matt Judon, Mark Andrews, Orlando Brown Jr.
Without further ado, here’s the few Baltimore Ravens who I believe to be in the top 100 players in the NFL…
