No. 4 Raven the Jaguars must silence in Week 12: Patrick Queen, LB
The Ravens’ brass were surely glad linebacker Patrick Queen fell to them in the 2019 draft. Although the former LSU Tiger struggled in coverage, he went on to become an important cog in Baltimore’s defense right off the bat.
Queen has gotten better since his rookie season and currently has a Pro Football Focus overall grade of 68.9. This season, he’s logged 70 total tackles, four sacks, one interception, and a forced fumble. He gives Baltimore defensive coordinator Mike McDonald a movable chess piece that can be deployed in many ways. The Jaguars will need to account for him on every play if they want to avoid turning the ball over.
No. 3 Raven the Jaguars must silence in Week 12: Marlon Humphrey, CB
It’s hard to call Marlon Humphrey underrated but you could make the case that he doesn’t get as much recognition as other cornerbacks do. A first-round pick in the 2017 draft, the Alabama product has shown a penchant for forcing fumbles but his coverage skills aren’t anything to scoff at.
This season, Humphrey registered six pass deflections and three interceptions and his 78.4 Pro Football Focus grade ranks ninth in the league among cornerbacks. He can line up inside or outside, so it will be worth watching how the Ravens decide to use him in Week 12.
