With the Pro-Bowl wrapped up two days ago, and the game was mainly chucking the ball deep to star receivers and defensive backs I realized we didn't get to see any skill position players do much. After all, two players were special teams, and the other two were in the trenches.
Keeping that in mind, I decided to look when the last time the Ravens had a Pro Bowl talent at each position.
Last time the Ravens had a Pro Bowl talent by offensive positions:
Quarterback: Steve McNair | 2006
Runningback: Justin Forsett | 2014
Fullback: Vonta Leach | 2012
Wide Receiver: N/A | Never
Tackle: Jonathan Ogden | 2007
Guard: Marshal Yanda | 2015
Center: N/A | Never
Last time the Ravens had a Pro Bowl talent by defensive positions:
Defensive Tackle: Haloti Ngata | 2013
Defensive End: Michael McCrary | 1999
Outside Linebacker: Elvis Dumervil | 2015
Inside Linebacker: C.J. Mosley | 2014
Cornerback: Chris McAlister | 2006
Safety: Ed Reed: 2012
Last time the Ravens had a Pro Bowl talent on Special Teams positions:
Punter: Sam Koch | 2015
Kicker: Justin Tucker | 2013
Long Snapper: Morgan Cox | 2015
Return Specialist: Jacoby Jones | 2012
All really cool information, and goes to show the Ravens are really lackluster in some areas. Never possessing a pro bowl wide-out, and never showing up in the center category either.
Some of these numbers are skewed, as last season Joe Flacco was offered an invitation to the Pro Bowl but declined due to his pregnant wife. The NFL Quarterback position is also quite full until Hall of Famers Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees help usher in the new generation. Now not all those names are always in there, but they do take up one extra spot, and just maybe that is the difference in Flacco seeing his true first pro-bowl or not.
