Three Ravens Land on Top 101 . List
The Ravens have had their fair share of holes on the top players lists lately, but three Ravens, Marlon Humphrey, Marcus Williams and Jackson, appeared on Touchdownwire’s Top 101 list with Doug Farrar and Mark Schofield.
Humphrey’s ingenuity [is] Farrar wrote a reason for his inclusion, “Humphrey stands out on the frontier as well as for the work he does in the hole. Humphrey’s physical playing style, as well as his recovery skills, make him a solid choice for the crows along the frontier. Humphrey might also be a good fit for inclusion in the list of holeshot defenders.” , but since he’s been spending more time abroad recently, he’s showing up here for the work he’s done abroad.”
This isn’t the first time Humphrey’s skill in the hole has been called better than his playing as an outside cornerback. In early June, PFF’s Anthony Trisch wrote that Humphrey “would take the lead” in the slots list in the back corner, but was ranked ninth as the outside quarterback.
But in 2021, Farrar writes, “few of the deep security tools are better.” “Williams allowed eight finishes on 16 goals for 112 yards, 29 yards after catch, two interceptions, one touchdown, and this opponent’s pass rating is 54.2. The Ravens are clearly not too concerned about the year-to-year variance, and with safety box Chuck Clark and rookie First-round rookie Kyle Hamilton is on board, Baltimore might be the best and most interesting triple safety kit in the NFL. This is a huge problem in an age when all kinds of coverings are the norm.”
“I think two things are true about Jackson’s 2021 campaign,” Farrar wrote. “First, for the first two months of the season, he was playing near MVP level. Second, the rest of the way was a struggle as he dealt with the Baltimore Ravens with mounting injuries. Now perhaps in that second half of the season is what has led some to exclude Jackson from similar rosters, wondering whether a regression occurred, and questioning whether it was wise to give the Ravens a long-term contract extension.But in my view, that ignores what we saw from Jackson at the beginning of the year, who was a full-fledged NFL player who was penalizing defenses by several Ways… With questions approaching, 2022 could be a pivotal year for Jackson. But questions aren’t new to young passersby, like he’s dealt with them since his draft assessment process. And given how he responds to them, I’ll bet a big year is coming from Jackson” .
