Marlon Humphrey is by far the star of little-used Ravens' rookie class

Here's a look at the first half impact of the Baltimore Ravens' draft class:

Marlon Humphrey, CB, first round: The No. 16 overall pick has never felt overwhelmed, which comes from the fact that he played big games at Alabama and is the son of former Pro Bowl running back Bobby Humphrey. He is currently the No. 3 corner on the team, but he would be playing even more snaps if not for Jimmy Smith and Brandon Carr playing so well. Humphrey has been aggressive in coverage and has broken up five passes, which is tied for the second-most on the NFL's No. 3 pass defense. He has played 201 snaps, which is almost double than any other rookie on the team. The Ravens see him as a future high-end starter. Grade: Above average.

Tyus Bowser, LB, second round: He broke out in Week 2 when he recorded an interception and a sack. Beyond that, Bowser has been nonexistent with one sack in the other seven games. Part of Bowser's limited productivity can be attributed to surprisingly low snap total. Grade: Average.

Chris Wormley, DE, third round: He was inactive for the first four games, and he likely would've had a "redshirt" rookie season if not for the injuries along the defensive line. Wormley has yet to stand out, making five tackles in five games. The Ravens passed on NFL leading rusher Kareem Hunt, who was taken 12 picks after Wormley. Grade: Below average.

Tim Williams, LB, third round: Considered one of the best pure pass-rushers, Williams has no sacks and has been inactive four times. He's only played 59 snaps, which ranks 21st among Baltimore's defensive players. Once again, the Ravens passed on Hunt, who was taken eight picks after Williams. Grade: Below average.

Nico Siragusa, C-G, fourth round: He tore his ACL, PCL and MCL on Aug. 1 after getting caught in a pile during a running play in camp. If not for that injury, Siragusa would be starting at left or right guard for the Ravens right now. Grade: Incomplete.

Jermaine Eluemunor, OL, fifth round: The Ravens knew Eluemunor was a developmental prospect when they drafted him. He only started one year at Texas A&M. So, it wasn't a surprise when he struggled mightily when forced into the starting lineup after a run of injuries along the offensive line. The Ravens do see potential in him. Grade: Below average.

Chuck Clark, S, sixth round: He's been solid as one of the Ravens' core special teams players. Clark ranks second on the team in tackles on coverage teams. He's played sparingly on defense. Grade: Average.
