Justin Tucker, kicker

GS: 0 | GP: 16 | Snaps: 165 Season in review: Tucker, whom the Ravens signed as an undrafted free agent last spring, beat out incumbent Billy Cundiff in the most compelling training camp battle of last summer. He never showed signs of cracking then, and it was a sign of things to come. The rookie was as clutch as kickers come, missing just three of his 33 field-goal attempts during the regular season and none in the Super Bowl run. Signature moment: Tucker's 47-yard game-winning field goal in double overtime in Denver will go down in Baltimore sports lore. Years from now, though, we may forget just how easy he made that kick seem. Stat that stands out: 61 -- touchbacks booted by Tucker last season, including 12 in four playoff games. Pro Football Focus grade: +46.6 overall | +31.8 on kickoffs | +14.3 on field goals and extra points. Outlook for 2013 and beyond: Tucker was one of the unlikeliest of stories in the team's Super Bowl season. He was brought in to push Cundiff and ended up having one of the best seasons a kicker has had in Ravens history. Tucker was also excellent on touchbacks, something that was a question mark while he was in college. If Tucker can perform like this every season, he will be heading to multiple Pro Bowls.
