PFF Grades the Ravens' Top Performers

New, comments

Much like the team's performance, the grades weren't very good too.

Much like this week's game, a lot of PFF's best-graded players were on the offensive side of the ball, not defense. Even the top defensive player went down injured. While there were some bright spots, it was an all-around bad performance, and not even PFF couldn't make the team look good. However, this piece is about the good, and not the bad. Here is what Pro Football Focus had to say about this week's top performers.

  • LT Eugene Monroe (+5.9) Our injured anchor at LT came back strong, earning the highest rating of any Raven. He only allowed one hurry in 38 dropbacks, and gave up only one pressure resulting in a sack.
  • LG Kelechi Osemele (+5.0) The budding star showed his true colors in this game. He even outscored Marshal Yanda, who is typically the stud of this offensive line.
  • ILB C.J. Mosley (-4.1) Was terrible, or so they say. This -4.1 rating was his worst since entering the league. His run defense was poor as he only made a pair of stops in 26 snaps, and was also easily blocked. In pass rushing scenarios, he had one hurry in 17 dropbacks. Worst of all, in pass coverage, he allowed 7-of-10 targets to be complete for 103 yards.
  • Elvis Dumervil (+2.9) Even though he was only in the game for 21 out of 90 snaps before going down with a groin injury, he was still Baltimore's highest-graded defender. In contrast, Jason Babin, his replacement, finished with a dismal -4.7 grade. That was the result of three penalites and only one hit.
Top Performers:

  • LT Eugene Monroe (+5.9)
  • LG Kelechi Osemele (+5.0)
  • TE Nick Boyle (+3.2)
  • OLB Elvis Dumervil (+2.9)
  • RT Ricky Wagner (+2.5)
  • CB Ladarius Webb (+2.5)
Surprisingly, Lardarius Webb was able to shake off the rust and have a nice game. He's actually looked pretty decent of late, and had a pick that was wiped out by a Lawrence Guy late hit on Josh McCown.

After some shaky play early on in the year, RT Ricky Wagner pulled it together for a nice game. We know Wagner can be good, but he just has to be consistent.

The only rookie making this week's list is the tight end named Boyle, not Williams. Boyle reeled in 3 catches for 27 yards and was a solid blocker. In contrast, Maxx Williams caught 1 pass for 0 yards.
