Baltimore Ravens: 4 players set to overachieve in 2020
3. Bradley Bozeman
As a sixth round pick out of the University of Alabama Bozeman was not highly touted, but carried intrigue. He had good size and was very consistent. Although, he doesn’t have any “elite” traits Bozeman by all accounts is a great player and teammate and is the type of player that a coach likes to have. Bozeman, naturally a center in college, has played left guard exclusively during the regular season thus far, but he is able to play all three interior positions.
In his rookie season, Bozeman only played in one game, starting it at left guard. Last season he started all 16 games at left guard, helping pave the way for the best rushing team in the history of the NFL and was very impressive. He was extremely efficient and did not make many mistakes. With only three penalties and four sacks there’s certainly room for improvement, but by no means was he a slouch.

This season Bozeman is entering year three of his young career, second as a starter and he is motivated. Coming off a cross country RV trip with his wife, in which he gave back and spoke with many kids, Bozeman seems ready to play. The offensive line has a huge hole to fill with Marshal Yanda being out and Bozeman seems deemed to be the next man up. At right guard the Ravens will line up either veteran D.J Fluker or rookie Tyre Phillips, but for Bozeman at left guard he will have to step up. As a returning starter on the interior he will be critical in helping replace the communication lose of Yanda.
Bozeman is also bookended by First team all pro offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley. This duo on the left side should be able to hold down the fort for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense. With another improved year, Bozeman can set himself
up with a big payday (he will become eligible after this season) and will hope to be the next stalwart at guard for the Ravens.
Stat Prediction: Two Sacks Allowed, two Penalties, 16 starts, consistently solid play
