Which Ravens Will Be a Household Name Super Bowl Sunday?

Who’s going to be a household name Super Bowl Sunday?

Seems like every year there is a player who is under the radar that makes a big play or has a dominant game in the Super Bowl.

We ask our Baltimore Gridiron Report columnists who they think will be that player:

Matt Jergensen: 

Paul Kruger: “The former second round pick has had a breakout season as a pass rusher and will earn big money next season either here in Baltimore or elsewhere. I expect him to add to his status after this Sunday.”

Honorable Mention: Jacoby Jones

Jonathan Scruggs:

Jacoby Jones. “Although his heroics have already been well established thanks to the Mile High Miracle, Jacoby Jones will cement his legacy with a handful of acrobatic, game saving catches. That or a well timed kick return for a touchdown.”

Honorable Mention: Paul Kruger

Gene Winner:  

DE Pernell McPhee: “McPhee is not a household name, but come Sunday he well could be. The second year DE/DT has started to come alive after dealing with injuries this year. During these playoffs he seems to be hitting his stride–he also seems to be around the football at the right time. Last week he had a huge tipped pass that resulted in an Ellerbe interception. This Sunday, I can envision McPhee with another tipped pass or recovering a fumble.”

Honorable Mention: OLB Courtney Upshaw
Ben Zinman:

Bernard Pierce. “With the defenders for the 49ers keying on Ray Rice running lanes begin to open up for the rookie and Pierce fills them immediately. He will score a touchdown in the 2nd half.”

Honorable Mention: Dannell Ellerbe
