The Baltimore Ravens have become known as somewhat of a Pro Bowl powerhouse in recent years. And the 2021 season might not prove to be any different.

The first wave of Pro Bowl voting was released by the NFL on Wednesday and the Ravens came in ranked fifth in overall voting behind just the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, Los Angeles Rams, and Kansas City Chiefs.

Among the leading vote recipients are kicker Justin Tucker and fullback Patrick Ricard who each lead their respective positions in votes in the AFC. Aside from them, the Ravens have a host of other players who rank in the top-10 at their positions leaguewide.

Those players include quarterback Lamar Jackson (fourth), center Bradley Bozeman (fourth), tight end Mark Andrews (second), kick returner Devin Duvernay (ninth), special teamer Chris Board (third), punter Sam Koch (ninth), and long snapper Nick Moore (ninth).

And remember, those rankings are all leaguewide, not conference-specific.

The Ravens could have a lot of Pro Bowlers again this year

Back in 2019, the Ravens set an NFL record when they sent a whopping 12 players to the Pro Bowl. And while their 2020 figure didn’t quite reach the same heights, they still saw a very respectable seven players voted in.

No NFL team has sent more players to the Pro Bowl over the last two years than the Ravens have. And they’ll be hoping to continue that trend this season.

Tucker and Ricard seem to have the best shots, at least based on preliminary voting. Tucker has been voted to the Pro Bowl four times including the last three seasons while Ricard has made it in each of the last two seasons.

Others such as Jackson, Andrews, and Koch will be looking to return to the Pro Bowl, although the latter hasn’t made it since 2015.

Bozeman, Duvernay, Board, and Moore would each be first-time Pro Bowlers in 2022. Board came close a year ago and has a chance to make it this year as one of the league’s most respected special-teams contributors.

The Ravens may have lost a few of their Pro-Bowl-caliber players to injuries this season, but that doesn’t mean they won’t still be well-represented in Las Vegas this year.
