OLB Roquan Smith: "I never try to change regardless of the situation"

Since he arrived in Baltimore midway through the 2022 season, Roquan Smith has changed the outlook of the Ravens defense entirely while becoming one of (if not the) the best off-ball linebackers in the NFL.

This week there's been a lot of talk about former Ravens legend Ray Lewis and how Smith compares to the legendary linebacker of Baltimore. Lamar called Smith "our Ray Lewis," and Smith discussed the comparison ahead of Week 5.

"Just being mentioned in the same sentence as Ray Lewis, it's humbling for sure. Ray did his thing for many years, considered the greatest to ever play the position in many eyes. I'll always have a great deal of respect for him. "I think the best person to be is yourself. I never try to change regardless of the situation. I think guys respect that, even from afar, as well as guys who are close to me. I never switch up."

Smith talked smack before facing the Cleveland Browns in Week 4 and judging by the result, he'd do good by doing it once more between now and Sunday.

Roquan is a leader, he is vocal, he is smacked right in the middle of every other Ravens defender, and the team has only benefited from his presence in the lineup. Let's keep it going, Ro'!
