Baltimore Ravens: 5 most dependable players on the roster
Who are the most dependable players on the Baltimore Ravens? Here’s the top five:
5. Marlon Humphrey:
Remember when the Ravens had to start the season without Tavon Young and Jimmy Smith got hurt in the season opener? The only cornerback who could seemingly get the job done on the entire roster was Humphrey. No matter the circumstance, Humphrey will always be a great cornerback. That’s what we learned in that time. Humphrey is one of the best cornerbacks in the game. What that means is that you can line him up against any receiver in the NFL and feel good about it. That’s dependability.
Humphrey seems to have a clutch gene. When he punched the football out of JuJu Smith-Schuster’s hands against the Steelers he started a 12 game win streak for the Ravens. If he hadn’t made that play, the Ravens probably would have lost that game or it could have ended in a tie. Humphrey tried to do the same thing earlier in the game and it worked out poorly. Humphrey is a locked in player who gives an elite performance when the Ravens need it the most. He absolutely is a flat out gamer.
Other than Jackson and maybe Ronnie Stanley, Humphrey is the best player on the entire roster. He’s consistent and he shows up big when it matters the most. When the Ravens secondary was looking like a weakness of the team because of injuries, Humphrey kept his rate of play up. When the Ravens got Marcus Peters and got Jimmy Smith back, Humphrey was still the best player of the bunch. Humphrey leads the way for the best secondary in the NFL. When the Ravens drafted him in 2017, they found the perfect combination of everything you want in a cornerback. As long as the Ravens have Humphrey on the field, they have at least one player that they can depend on.
