The Baltimore Ravens are still being led by Ozzie Newsome. Here are five quality players that he found in the draft recently:
There has been a lot of talk about Ozzie Newsome and his declining draft results. The Baltimore Ravens have missed the playoffs three of the past four seasons; any general manager is going to get criticized in that time period. Newsome is still a competent football mind, he has forgotten more about football than you or I may ever know. When you’re a GM of an NFL team nothing is going to stop fans from hurling blame your way. That being said, anyone who doesn’t respect Newsome doesn’t respect the game of football.

Newsome was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a tight end. He has had an equally historic run as an executive in the NFL. We have all complained about some of the decisions he has made, but we can never stop being grateful for what he has done. He built two Super Bowl teams. Newsome also played a large role in helping John Harbaugh win at least one playoff game in his first five seasons.
Things have not been as good lately. Everybody understands that. Sometimes, it is just nice to give praise to Newsome for the things he is still doing right. He started off his run in Baltimore drafting Jonathan Ogden an Ray Lewis in the same season. He has drafted several Hall of Fame worthy players and a bunch of Pro Bowl selections. Nothing in this world stays as hot as Newsome was in the NFL Draft. While we have all been whining, here are five underrated players that he found in the past five years.
