With the first quarter of the 2017 NFL regular season in the books, let’s check in on some former Baltimore Ravens:

Skill:

  • Tyrod Taylor - Has lead Buffalo to a 3-1 record with a 5:1 touchdown to interception ratio and 862 total yards.
  • Torrey Smith - Is experiencing a minor resurgence in Philadelphia with ten catches for 134 yards.
  • Kamar Aiken - Just six receptions for 47 yards while catching just 35-percent of his targets for the Colts.
  • Deonte Thompson - Has carved out a niche with the Bears by catching eleven balls for 125 yards and a score. Is also averaging 23.3 yards on eight kick returns.
  • Aldrick Robinson - Six receptions for 82 yards in San Francisco.
  • Taquan Mizzell - The rookie undrafted free agent has yet to suit up for Chicago.
  • Kyle Juszczyk - The highest paid fullback in the league has 74 all-purpose yards through four games.
  • Phillip Supernaw - Started one game at tight end for the Titans and has blocked well.
  • Ed Dickson - Has managed only 96 yards on six catches for Carolina despite an uptick in playing time.

Offensive Line:

  • Kelechi Osemele - With Marshal Yanda on injured reserve, ‘K.O.’ has a strong case for consideration as the best overall guard in the NFL.
  • Ricky Wagner - Less than stellar after signing a mega deal in Detroit last offseason.
  • A.Q. Shipley - Has surprisingly started 20 consecutive games at center for Arizona.
  • Nick Easton - After being traded twice in 2015, Easton has now started nine straight games on the Vikings interior.

Defensive Front:

  • Haloti Ngata - In his twelfth season, Ngata has one sack, two quarterback hits, one pass deflected and five tackles thus far.
  • Timmy Jernigan - After being traded to the Eagles, Jernigan has 1.5 sacks, four tackles for a loss and three quarterback hits.
  • Trevon Coley - Was beat out by Michael Pierce for the last defensive tackle spot in 2016. Has assumed a starting role for the Browns with nine tackles, one fumble recovery and a sack.
  • Lawrence Guy - Nine tackles, two quarterback hits and zero sacks over his first four games with New England.
  • Pernell McPhee - A pair of sacks, two tackles for a loss, three quarterback hits, eight tackles and a forced fumble for the Bears despite battling injury.
  • Elvis Dumervil - Serving as a rotational pass rusher for the 49ers, ‘Doom’ posted two sacks, two tackles for a loss and a pair of quarterback hits in Week 4.
  • John Simon - The journeyman outside linebacker has posted two sacks and four tackles for a loss with Indianapolis.
  • Josh Bynes - Eight tackles, a forced fumble and a sack for the Cardinals backup linebacker.

Secondary:

  • Rashaan Melvin - While starting all four games for the Colts, Rashaan has accumulated 16 tackles, two interceptions and seven passes deflected.
  • Darian Stewart - 19 tackles for the Broncos much improved run defense.
  • Terrence Brooks - It is fair to say the Ravens gave up on their former third round selection too early. After flashing playmaking ability with the Eagles in 2016, he has posted two interceptions and three passes defensed for the Jets this year.

Coaches:

  • Hue Jackson - Joe Flacco’s former quarterback coach has lost 19 of 20 contest as the Brown head coach.
  • Chuck Pagano - This defensive minded head coach has a .600 winning percentage while leading Indianapolis.
  • Ted Monachino - His defenses with the Colts have been rather underwhelming after serving six seasons as Baltimore’s linebacker coach.
  • Jim Caldwell - In his fourth year as the Lions head coach, Jim has them currently atop the NFC North with a top-10 offense.
  • Teryl Austin - Is calling the plays for Detroit’s defense, with relatively impressive results.
  • Steve Spagnulo - His Giants defense has been among the best in the NFL over the last two seasons.
  • Rick Dennison - The Gary Kubiak disciple is coordinating the Bills bottom-5 offense.
  • Leslie Frazier - In his first year overseeing Buffalo’s defense, Frazier has spearheaded a noticeable improvement.
