After just seven seasons and four Pro Bowl berths, it certainly seems early to proclaim Yanda a future Hall of Famer. Coach John Harbaugh disagrees.
"He’s just a special human being and a special player, and he’s a Hall of Famer some day," Harbaugh said in July. "And I’m sure glad he’s on our team.”
Fair enough. He's already earned the mantle of best Ravens offensive lineman not named Jonathan Ogden (the franchise's first-and-so-far-only Hall of Famer).
Not bad for a guy who was the 86th overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft.
