Baltimore Ravens select CB Marlon Humphrey at 16th overall


  • The Baltimore Ravens selected Marlon Humphrey with its first-round pick in the NFL draft Thursday.
  • QBs avoided Humphrey in 2016, as he ranked third among all SEC CBs (with a minimum of 200 snaps in coverage) with an average of 8.5 coverage snaps per target.
  • Humphrey’s overall grades of 84.4 (2016) and 86.0 (2015) over the past two seasons each ranked within the top five for SEC cornerbacks.
  • 20 of the 30 incompletions on throws into his coverage were a result of either an interception, pass breakup, cutting a receiver off or getting close enough in coverage to force a difficult catch.
  • 87 percent (1,550 out of 1,794) of Humphrey’s defensive snaps in the past two seasons have come from the left cornerback position.
