Marlon N. Humphrey (born July 8, 1996) is an American football cornerback for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Alabama, and was drafted by the Ravens 16th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. He is the son of former NFL running back Bobby Humphrey.

High school career[edit]

A native of Hoover, Alabama, Humphrey attended Hoover High School, where he was a three-time All-State selection. During his junior and senior seasons, Hoover went a combined 30–0, winning consecutive AHSAA 6A State Championships in 2012 and 2013.[1] Humphrey was named as a USA Today High School All-American for the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Regarded as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Humphrey was ranked as the No. 2 cornerback prospect of the 2014 class, behind only Jabrill Peppers.[2] Humphrey committed to attend the University of Alabama on January 29, 2014.[3]

In high school, Humphrey also competed at a world-class level in track. He won a silver medal in the 110 metres hurdles at the 2013 World Youth Championships in Donetsk, Ukraine.[4] He lost to Jaheel Hyde of Jamaica, who established a new championship record and came .01 seconds shy of tying the World Youth Best held by Wilhem Belocian. Due to an injury, Humphrey had to skip the 400 metres hurdles final,[5] an event in which he held the World Youth Leading for 2013. Humphrey was named to the USA Today All-American Track and Field Team.[6]

College career[edit]

Humphrey intended to compete in football and track for the Crimson Tide.[7] After redshirting his initial year in Tuscaloosa, he became a starter at cornerback in 2015.

Professional career[edit]

Humphrey received an invitation to the NFL Combine and completed nearly all of the required drills, except for the shuttle and vertical. He participated at Alabama's Pro Day and decided to only do positional drills for the scouts and team representatives. The majority of scouts and analysts projected him to be selected in the first or second rounds. He was ranked the fifth best cornerback in the draft by NFLDraftScout.com and Sports Illustrated, ranked the fourth best cornerback by ESPN, and ranked the third best cornerback by NFL analysts Bucky Brooks and Mike Mayock.[8][9][10][11]

The Baltimore Ravens selected Humphrey in the first round (16th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft.[14]

On May 5, 2017, the Baltimore Ravens signed Humphrey to a fully guaranteed four-year, $11.84 million contract with a signing bonus of $6.75 million.[15][16] He recorded his first career interception in week 11 against the Green Bay Packers, and his second two weeks later against the Detroit Lions. The Ravens won both those games.

Legal troubles[edit]

On January 25, 2018, it was reported that Humphrey was arrested on January 13 on suspicion of harassment and stealing a telephone charger worth $15.[17] The charges were dismissed on March 2, 2018 due to lack of probable cause.[18]
