Who was the Ravens MVP in 2014?

New, comments

Which player (or players) were most instrumental to the Ravens' success in 2014?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 2014 season brought us quite a few candidates for Ravens MVP. Here are this year's candidates:

Joe Flacco

The quarterback is the most important position on the team, especially when your defense is inconsistent to say the least. A big part of the Ravens' bounce-back is owed to Joe Flacco's bounce-back.

Justin Forsett

Forsett was a reliable running back, as he gained 1,000 yards on the ground and was a good receiver and protector in the passing game.

The offensive line

I HATE putting up position groups on individual ballots, but the offensive line took Joe Flacco from being the second most sacked QB in the NFL to one of the least, and took the 30th ranked rushing attack and turned it into one of the best. They're certainly worth consideration.

Steve Smith

Steve Smith was a reliable receiver who knew how to generate big plays like Anquan Boldin did in 2012.

Brandon Williams

The second year man out of Missouri Southern State was an underrated defensive tackle and proved to be a big player vs. the pass and the run.

Elvis Dumervil

Dumervil led the Ravens in sacks this season and he even set a new franchise high in sacks. He was a large part of the Ravens pass rush that tried to bail out a flailing secondary.

C.J. Mosley

Mosley has received accolade after accolade this season and most importantly looks to be a defensive cornerstone for years to come.
