This list is harder to compile because you have to put the greatest Kicker on the list. Where do you rank a guy like Flacco?
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.
Rod Woodson didn’t play for the Ravens that long. But the four seasons he did play in Baltimore did wonders for Ray Lewis’s growth.
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).
Marshall Yanda was a guard for the Baltimore Ravens for 13 seasons, retiring at the end of the 2019 NFL season. While playing for them, Yanda earned 8 Pro Bowl appearances and was selected to the 2010 All-Decade Team, one of five Ravens selected. Additionally, he was part of the Super Bowl XLVII Championship team, along with many others on this list.
Football analytics company Pro Football Focus named Yanda the highest-ranked guard for three years from 2014 to 2016. Additionally, in 2022 he was inducted into the Baltimore Ravens Ring of Honor during their game against Denver Broncos.
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.
In 2008, Joe Flacco joined the Ravens and quickly made a lasting impact. Before him, quarterbacking had been doomed to failure; with eight post-season victories on the road alone – Flacco is the only quarterback in NFL history to do so! When it mattered most, Flacco always rose to the occasion.
Justin Tucker is one of the greatest kickers in NFL history, having signed for Baltimore after going unselected in the 2012 NFL Draft. A 6-time Pro Bowler and member of the Super Bowl XLVII’s winning team, Tucker earned himself a place on both the All-Decade Team and holds three NFL records, including the highest field goal percentage, longest successful field goal attempt, and most 50+ yard field goals in a season.
Suggs is undoubtedly headed for the Hall of Fame for a good reason. He’s one of the greatest all-around linebackers in NFL history, with 132.5 sacks in 16 seasons as a Raven. Suggs also had an exceptional ability to play flats against a passing attack, slowing the run and setting an edge that set him apart from other edge defenders who rush quarterbacks or play against running plays. Additionally, Suggs served as a strong leader on and off the field throughout his tenure with Baltimore, never shying away from harsh criticism either.
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.
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 dominant. From 1997-2007, he made the Pro Bowl every year.
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.
