4. Jadeveon Clowney, Edge

Who knew that Jadeveon Clowney would have a career year for the Baltimore Ravens when he signed with them this offseason? Clowney is 30 years old, and after about a decade in the NFL, things finally came together for his best year yet. Clowney has 7.5 sacks. His career-high is 9.5.

So, Odafe Oweh needs 1.5, Kyle Van Noy needs one, and Clowney needs 2.5 sacks to set his career high this year. Clowney has been the reliable one while Van Noy was a free agent, and Oweh was injured. He held things down by himself for the first couple of weeks. 

Still, now that Van Noy and Oweh are here to give him help, we are seeing the best of Clowney. He has four sacks in the last three games. The Ravens' pass rush does not get respect, but with Van Noy, Clowney, and Oweh all playing at the top of their games, this is a solid group.
