ESPN Insider looked a few years into the ever-changing future of the NFL and came up with a list of the Top 15 pass rushers for the 2015 season. Yes, that's not a typo, they are for whatever reason, looking four seasons ahead of 2012. It's tough to project what's going to happen in this coming season, much less three years beyond this.
However, while no members of the Baltimore Ravens made that Top 15 list, one player did get named as an "Honorable Mention." Second year Ravens DE Pernell McPhee was listed on that Honorable Mention list, which is still a nice recognition for a guy who was a draft day afterthought for the most part and a part-time player on the Ravens.
At the same time, McPhee made the most of his playing time, racking up solid stats for the season and giving hope that the pass rush will still be effective despite the loss of the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in Terrell Suggs, and his14 QB sacks. McPhee's six QB sacks was second behind Suggs, pretty impressive for a guy who played sparingly in specific situations for most of the year but figures to get a huge boost in playing time in 2012.
