Marlon Humphrey (2017):
If Jimmy Smith was a good cornerback for the Baltimore Ravens, then Marlon Humphrey has been an elite cornerback for not just the Baltimore Ravens, but the NFL as a whole.
It’s remarkable what Humphrey has accomplished in his three seasons in the league. Humphrey was a stud from day one for the Ravens, became the league’s most underrated corner in his second year, and then blossomed into a First-Team All-Pro his third year. Humphrey is now regarded as a top-five cornerback in the league.
Baltimore was able to nab Humphrey with the 16th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and has already outplayed his draft position. Considering Marshon Lattimore was taken a few picks ahead of Humphrey, it’s impressive to say he is perhaps the better of the two. For Baltimore, they couldn’t be any happier with the result.
Marlon Humphrey will go into the 2020 season at just 24-years old with his best days ahead of him. Teamed up with Marcus Peters and Earl Thomas, the Baltimore Ravens might end up with the best secondary in all of football. Humphrey is the defense’s most important player and he’s going to sign a fat extension in the near future.
