It seems like a massive oversight on the part of the NFL that Kevin Zeitler has never been named to a Pro Bowl.

Despite being one of the better guards in football for the majority of his nine-year career, the Pro Bowl has alluded Zeitler to his point. But perhaps the voting committee finally throws him a bone in 2021.

Part of his shortcomings likely had something to do with the situation he found himself in.

Some of his best years were spent anchoring the offensive lines of the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns — hardly hotbeds for national recognition.

His work in Cleveland, in particular, often went underappreciated given the sheer lack of talent around him. But with Baltimore, that hopefully won’t be a problem.

The 31-year-old will be anchored by the aforementioned Bradley Bozeman and former Pro Bowler Alejandro Villanueva as part of a revamped Ravens offensive line.

The spotlight shouldn’t be an issue for Zeitler. Now, he’ll just have to perform at the level most expect him to.

When discussing Ravens players who haven’t made the Pro Bowl in their careers, Zeitler likely isn’t someone who comes to mind.

But the nine-year veteran has been overlooked for far too long. Perhaps he finally gets the recognition he deserves in Year 10.
