It feels weird to call Bradley Bozeman a “secret.” After all, the former Alabama standout is entering his third year as a full-time starter and is due a pretty sizable contract extension in the near future.

But such is the case with a former sixth-round pick playing one of the least glamorous positions in football.

Bozeman took over the starting left guard job in his second season and hasn’t looked back since. He’s posted consecutive solid PFF grades, allowed just two sacks, and was flagged only twice in 2020.

Combine that with his versatility and you have a rock-solid starter who hasn’t yet received his due praise.

It makes sense when you think about it, though.

Not only does Bozeman play along the interior offensive line, but he’s regularly been overshadowed by offensive line teammates such as Ronnie Stanley and Orlando Brown Jr.

It isn’t a surprise that few people around the league know who he is.

Bozeman will be sliding inside to his natural position at center in 2021 and the hope is that he could not only provide stability to the position after last season’s debacle, but that he could play the best football of his career as well.

Once Bozeman receives his second contract in the near future, the secret might be out. But for now, he might be the best-kept secret on the entire Ravens’ roster.
