T Jonathan Ogden
If your house is a Ravens house, then this name is a household name. Jonathan Ogden was the Ravens’ first ever draft pick, Super Bowl XXXV Champion, 11 time (consecutive) Pro-Bowler, five time First-Team All-Pro, member of the NFL All-Decade Team, Ravens Ring of Honor inductee, and Pro Football Hall of Famer.
Ogden is the only Ravens offensive linemen to catch two touchdown passes. He was also the catalyst for many team records, including only allowing 17 sacks in the 2006 season (The Ravens BEST regular season in team history, by the way). That was a franchise low and second lowest in the NFL that season.
Ogden has been ranked as #72 out of the NFL’s top 100 players in league history. His instincts, power, and incredible size paved the way for Jamal Lewis’ historic performance against the Cleveland Browns in 2003, when he rushed for 295 yards. In that same year, Lewis rushed for 2,066 total yards, which is third best in NFL history.
Jonathan Ogden was truly a once in a generation player, and most certainly the best offensive lineman in Ravens’ history.
