The Ravens love tough, physical football players. They also love Alabama products. Humphrey is both, and he shows off his physicality when playing press coverage.
In the Peach Bowl against Washington, Humphrey was matched up with the most talented wide receiver he had faced all year to that point, John Ross. Ross is small, but his rise into the top 10 of the draft was due to his blazing speed. Humphrey made sure to keep Ross check right off the line of scrimmage by putting his hands on Ross immediately. Ross cuts toward the inside, but Humphrey remains all over him, forcing an incompletion. (You can see the top of Humphrey’s helmet at the bottom of the screen, but he isn’t in the frame the whole time. The replay provides a better angle.)
