Inside linebacker C.J. Mosley, guard Marshal Yanda, kicker Justin Tucker and fullback Kyle Juszczyk were the four Ravens named to the Pro Bowl announced Tuesday night by the NFL. Four other Ravens were named as second alternates – safety Eric Weddle, nose tackle Brandon Williams, tight end Dennis Pitta, and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.
It was the sixth consecutive Pro Bowl selection for Yanda, who made the switch from right guard to left guard midway through this season, to offset the impact of a shoulder injury. Even switching positions, Yanda’s play has been superb.
Tucker has had a spectacular season as placekicker, making 33 of 34 attempts, with his only miss coming on a blocked kick against the Patriots. Tucker is 10 for 10 from 50 yards or more, and will be participating in his second Pro Bowl.
It will also be the second Pro Bowl for Mosley, who has made the team in two of his three NFL seasons. He is one of the leaders of the Ravens’ defense, and the former first-round pick should be a perennial Pro Bowler for years to come.
It will be the first Pro Bowl for Juszczyk, who leads NFL fullbacks in pass receptions (33), and continues to excel as a lead blocker.
