2. Bradley Bozeman, C, Ravens
The Ravens did some offensive line reshuffling this offseason. Along with the additions of Kevin Zeitler, Alejandro Villanueva, and the aforementioned Ben Cleveland, the team will also be moving Bradley Bozeman over to center.
Bozeman has spent the last two years as Baltimore’s starting left guard, but he’ll be shifting over to his natural position in 2021 in an effort to solidify a position that caused the Ravens some trouble last year.
Bozeman is a good player who has probably been a league-average starter in Baltimore. But don’t tell Madden that.
Despite his reliable play, Madden gave Bozeman a poor 72 overall rating essentially dubbing him a high-end backup at his position.
Among those with higher ratings are veteran special teamer/safety Anthony Levine, defensive lineman Justin Madubuike, and outside linebacker Tyus Bowser.
Somewhat incredibly, Bozeman has the same overall rating as former third-round pick Jaylon Ferguson. It seems silly to argue that a borderline draft bust is just as good as a league-average starting guard/center.
Others with the same rating are young linebacker Malik Harrison and wide receiver Miles Boykin. Again, Bozeman is a better player than each of them.
He’ll have a chance to prove his doubters wrong if he could successfully transition to his new/old position in 2021.
