How many bonafide top-tier players are currently part of the league-leading Baltimore Ravens? How many performers could be considered the best at their position? How many would you say lead the way on, at the very least, one particular skill in the NFL?

Well, those questions now have an answer. ESPN analyst Matt Bowen wrote a fun and interesting in-depth analysis of the best NFL players based on specific traits and skills for the 2023 season. He came up with 101 different traits and then picked the best player across the league at that particular skill.

While this is not meant to be taken as the be-all and end-all, definitive proclamation of the absolute best NFL players out there, it's interesting to see where Baltimore and the Ravens fall into those categories individually.

Bowen's analysis is based on observations from game tape and supported by statistical data, per the author. He was aiming to provide a thorough and insightful look into the talents and capabilities that make up the best players in the NFL, so enjoy it for what it is!

Baltimore's players, according to Bowen, are the best at eight particular traits. In total, seven players were listed as the leaders of one of the 101 categories identified by Bown, with QB Lamar Jackson listed twice by the ESPN analyst. Here's a breakdown of the picks, including what Bown had to say about the players and their skills.
