The Ravens tied an NFL record with 12 Pro Bowl selections. Only the 1973 Miami Dolphins had as many selections. The Ravens still would need one more selectee to reach the 2007 Dallas Cowboys’ record of 13 Pro Bowlers after roster adjustments, but the Ravens are focused on having zero players play in the Pro Bowl (you know, due to playing in the Super Bowl).
Here is a look at the 12 Pro Bowlers plus two alternate selections.
Lamar Jackson (QB, First Selection)*
The MVP of the league has been simply sensational for the Ravens this season. Jackson leads the NFL in touchdown passes and has eclipsed 1,100 rushing yards on the season, breaking Michael Vick’s record for rushing yards by a quarterback in one season. By almost every metric, Jackson has been one of if not the single best player in football. He led all players in Pro Bowl voting, and he appears to be running away with the MVP.
Mark Ingram (RB, Third)
Ingram has been great in his first year in Baltimore. After making a pair of Pro Bowls in his career with the Saints, Ingram has come to Baltimore and has been an immediate success. Ingram is closing in on 1,000-yard mark for rushing, and he has already hit the 10 touchdown plateau with two weeks to spare. Ingram has also been helpful in the passing game as he has begun to haul in more passes, and he scored a couple of receiving touchdowns in recent weeks. While not the best running back in the AFC, Ingram is a worthy inclusion into the Pro Bowl roster.
Patrick Ricard (FB, First)*
A two-way star for the ravens, Ricard has played very well on both sides of the ball in addition to being a helpful piece on special teams. While Ricard has played fewer and fewer snaps on defense in the second half of the season, he is still a valuable part of the offense, generally receiving about 30 percent of the snaps. Ricard has been a terrific blocker in the Ravens dynamic rushing attack as he is often the lead blocker for Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram, or Gus Edwards.
Mark Andrews (TE, First)
Andrews has been a revelation in the second year with the Ravens. While his numbers have slipped a little bit from his hot start, Andrews is closing in on 800 receiving yards, and he has eight touchdowns on the season. Andrews has been a priceless target, and he will likely eclipse 100 targets for the season.
Ronnie Stanley (LT, First)
Before missing Week 15 with a concussion, Stanley had played almost every meaningful snap for the Ravens on the season. Stanley is a stalwart at left tackle, contributing to the efficiency of the Ravens offense both in the passing game and in the rushing game. Stanley has rarely been beaten off the edge, and he is a major reason why the Ravens have scored the most points in the NFL this season.
Marshal Yanda (RG, Eighth)
Yanda has been selected to his eighth Pro Bowl in the last nine seasons as the guard has once again been fantastic in both pass protection and run blocking. Despite being 35, Yanada has been phenomenal game in and game out and has only missed snaps in blowouts. Yanda is as consistent as NFL players come, and he should be considered to be an All-Pro right guard for the third time in his career.
Orlando Brown (RT, First)
The gargantuan right tackle has been fantastic in 2019. Brown has yet to miss a snap on the season, and he has been efficient as a pass blocker and as a run blocker. Brown led all AFC tackles in Pro Bowl voting, but he’s been selected as an alternate for the season’s Pro Bowl.
Matt Judon (OLB, First)
Judon has been great in 2019. He has recorded a career-high 8.5 sacks and has a career-high 29 quarterback hits, one of the highest figures in the NFL. While he has been one of the only consistent pass-rushing threats from the Ravens defense, Judon has still been highly effective. Judon also has three forced fumbles.
Marlon Humphrey (CB, First)
Humphrey has been a lockdown corner in 2019. Humphrey has 13 pass knockdowns, a pair of interceptions, a pair of fumbles forced, and a trio of fumble recoveries. Humphrey also took two of those fumble recoveries back into the end zone for touchdowns, fueling a Ravens defense that has gotten hot since Week 6.
Marcus Peters (CB, Third)
Despite starting the season with the Rams, Marcus Peters has been one of the best cornerbacks in football with the Ravens this season. Since coming over before Week 7, Peters has a pair of interception returns for touchdowns and has picked off three total passes, including one against his old Rams. Peters has also made nine pass deflections, and he is a driving force in a Ravens defense that now ranks as one of the best in the NFL since his arrival.
Earl Thomas (FS, Seventh)
In his first season in Baltimore, Thomas has returned to the level of elite safety. Thomas has a pair of interceptions as well as a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Thomas has still been able to play the ball-hawking style that he did in Seattle, a style that helped him to six Pro Bowl selections and three appearances on the All-Pro team. While Thomas will likely be kept off the All-Pro team, he has had a huge comeback campaign this season.
Justin Tucker (K, Third)*
Tucker hasn’t been perfect this season, but he has been pretty close. The three-time All-Pro has just missed one field goal on the season, posting the second-highest percentage of makes of his career. While Tucker missed his second and third extra points of this career this season, he leads the NFL in both extra points made and extra points attempted. Tucker is still the best kicker in the NFL, and each season brings them closer to being the greatest kicker of all time.
Sam Koch (P, Second)
A one-time Pro Bowler, Koch has had a strong season for the Ravens despite not being called upon very often. Koch has only had to punt more than three times in a game twice all season, a testament to how well the Ravens have played offensively. Despite having a punt blocked last week, Koch has still been one of the most effective punters in the game as his yards per punt rank in the top 10, and he has done well to pin opponents inside their 20-yard line with his variety of punting styles and angles.
Morgan Cox (LS, Third)*
One of the best long snappers is in the business, Cox has consistently delivered good snaps to Sam Koch regardless of if it is an extra point, field goal, or a punt. There have been very few instances where Cox has delivered a bad snap, contributing to Koch’s effectiveness as a punter and Justin Tucker’s effectiveness as a placekicker. Cox is one of the most consistent players in the league, and he is deserving of his third Pro Bowl nod.
