The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Top-10 Baltimore Ravens of All-Time

Top-10 Baltimore Ravens of All-Time

The team's finest
Publish Date: 03/22/2021
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

This list is harder to compile since we do not allow active players, no doubt Flacco, Ngata, Suggs, Yanda would be high on this list if we did.

10) Jarret Johnson, Outside Linebacker/Defensive End

He’s the Ravens’ all-time leader in games played (129). He wouldn’t play that much if he wasn’t excellent at what he did. Johnson is also fifth all-time on the teams tackle list (523).

9) Michael McCrary, Defensive End

In his six seasons with Baltimore, he recorded 51 sacks in 75 starts. Besides Peter Boulware, McCrary was the pass-rusher the Ravens looked to during the early 2000’s—when they were historically dominant.

8) Jamie Sharper, Outside Linebacker

Sharper was all over the field, filled up the stat sheet and covered receivers much better than average linebackers.

In 2001, Sharper had his best season as a Raven. He made 77 tackles, defended 11 passes, recorded six sacks and recovered one fumble for a touchdown.

7) Todd Heap, Tight End

When it comes to making big catches—specifically for touchdowns—no Raven has ever done it better than Todd Heap. As the franchise’s leader in touchdown receptions (41), he’s put on clinics of how to make tough catches in the red zone.

He was an incredible athlete with strength to match. His blocking was well above average and he was remarkably consistent.

Over 10 years as a Raven, Heap averaged 11 yards per reception. In case you didn’t know, Heap was pretty much the team’s only option on pass plays, too.

6) Rod Woodson, Free Safety

Rod Woodson didn’t play for the Ravens that long. But the four seasons he did play in Baltimore were seasons that did wonders for the growth of Ray Lewis.

From 1998-2001, Woodson made 253 tackles, caused 26 turnovers (20 interceptions, six fumble recoveries) and scored five touchdowns (interception returns). Those five scores helped him become the NFL’s all-time leader in interceptions returned for a touchdown (12).

5) Peter Boulware, Outside Linebacker

In his rookie year, Boulware started every game and made 11.5 sacks. He went on to win the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year award as well.

In 2001, Boulware recorded 15 sacks—which still remains a team record.

4) Jamal Lewis, Running Back

During his time in Baltimore, Lewis averaged 1,300 rushing yards and 7.5 rushing touchdowns per season.

It’s tough to overstate how great Lewis was after what maybe should have been a career-ending knee injury. His combination of speed and power was unstoppable.

3) Ed Reed, Free Safety

He’s the NFL’s all-time leader in interception return yardage (1,541). Reed also has the two longest interception returns in NFL history.

He’s scored 13 career touchdowns in four different ways (punt return, 1; blocked punt return, 3; interception return, 7; fumble recovery, 2).

Reed was as dynamic a player as the Ravens have ever had. He was the quintessential game-changer.

2) Jonathan Ogden, Tackle

Jonathan Ogden was the Ravens’ first-ever draft pick and was the first Raven to be selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Ogden was absolutely dominant. From 1997-2007, he made the Pro Bowl every year.

1) Ray Lewis, Middle Linebacker

One of just five players to win the AP Defensive Player of the Year award twice: Joe Greene (1972, 1974), Lawrence Taylor (1981, 1982),Reggie White (1987, 1998) and Bruce Smith (1990, 96).

Leader of the Ravens great defense that won Super Bowl XXXV.
