The Ravens find themselves with 10 out of the 25 total positions on the All-AFC North Team. Highlighted mostly on special teams and defense as most casual fans would know them, the Ravens do have Steve Smith and Marshal Yanda on the offensive side of the ball.

Here are the Ravens players that are featured on the team along with their position:

Steve Smith - Wide Receiver
Marshal Yanda - Guard
Timmy Jernigan - Defensive End
Elvis Dumervil - Outside Linebacker
C.J. Mosley - Inside Linebacker
Terrell Suggs - Outside Linebacker
Jimmy Smith - Cornerback
Will Hill - Safety
Justin Tucker - Kicker
Sam Koch - Punter

All of the analysis is pretty spot on and while most Ravens fans will want to see guys like Daryl Smith at inside linebacker and Ricky Wagner at right tackle, the selections they have in their spots are at least not completely wrong.

Dave Dameshek does point that quarterback Joe Flacco is next on the quarterback depth chart mostly because of his January abilities, but notes that there is still a shadow left by the aging Ben Roethlisberger. Again, most fans might not be happy with that assessment, but it is accurate right now.

Hopefully by the end of the season, the Ravens will be featured in quite a few more spots. Personally, I can easily see the Ravens taking over the offensive and defensive lines as they look to be even more fearsome than they were last season.

So who do you not like on this list and who do you think got cheated out of a spot?
