In 2022, the Ravens had six players selected for the Pro Bowl. That number was tied with the San Francisco 49ers for fourth-most of all teams in the league.
Philadelphia accounted for the most selected players with eight, followed by Dallas and Kansas City, and each initially sent seven players.
The Ravens have completed two games this season and are just hours away from playing their third matchup against the Colts.
With pregame preparation underway, we’re looking at five players who could be first-time Pro Bowlers in 2023.
offensive guard Kevin Zeitler
Last season, Zeitler finished atop fan voting at his position and is an anchor of the Ravens offensive line. Zeitler had the sixth-best grade among AFC guards from PFF and the fifth-best pass-blocking rate of any guard in the NFL.
center Tyler Linderbaum
Linderbaum will miss his second straight game, but when healthy, he’s among the best centers in the league.
linebacker Patrick Queen
Queen is in a contract year, and off to a strong start playing next to Roquan Smith.
Queen is extremely talented, can play with sideline to sideline speed, and could emerge as one of the best inside linebackers in the NFL.
A Pro Bowl for both Baltimore middle linebackers isn’t out the question.
cornerback Brandon Stephens
I charted every Brandon Stephens vs. Ja'Marr Chase one-on-one from Sunday's game. The results:
13 in press coverage
1 pass interference penalty
0 catches allowed beyond LOShttps://t.co/7geryGmc8n

A dynamic playmaker who can play safety and cornerback, Stephens has been lights out through the first two weeks.
Brandon Stephens in single coverage this season:
2 receptions allowed
19 yards allowed
1 forced incompletion
63.5 passer rating

If Stephens can continue his strong play, while erasing top AFC pass catchers, he’ll compete for All-Pro honors along with a Pro Bowl nod.
running back Gus Edwards
With J.K. Dobbins out, Edwards has the potential for a 1,200-yard season if he can stay healthy, and contunue to lead the team in snaps.
