As the Ravens near the bye week and all 32 NFL teams have played at least half of the scheduled 16 this season, several national media outlets have put out midseason All-Pro teams.
For Ravens fans, there's a common thread for every one: Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda. But two first-year starters join him on several lists, as did two blossoming stars whose prospects were dimmed by injury. Here's how some national writers rate the Ravens so far:
Wagner, a second-year player who is a full-time starter for the first time, joins his linemate Yanda on the analysis site's rankings. Osemele, the Ravens' left guard, was playing at a first-team level before a knee injury limited him, and he joins Mosley as an honorable mention.
