No. 2: Marlon Humphrey (2017)

Humphrey hasn't been the healthiest player since the Ravens nabbed the former Alabama star, but he has been a quality cornerback year in and year out for on of the best defenses in the league. In a pivotal 2024 campaign, Humphrey remains CB1 once again for Baltimore.

Humphrey has made a Pro Bowl in every year since 2019 in which he played more than 12 games, even being named a First-Team All-Pro in 2019. The Ravens haven't spent a ton of money on big names like Stephon Gilmore in free agency. That has to be a very strong sign of trust in what he can do.

Lamar Jackson was an amazing pick for the Baltimore Ravens

No. 1: Lamar Jackson (2018)

Come on, you knew this was happening. After witnessing a painful Draft Day slide in which Jackson fell from the top-half of the first round all the way to the last pick, Baltimore traded to acquire the No. 32 pick and make the greatest offensive draft pick in franchise history outside of Jonathan Ogden.

The two-time MVP is destined to break all of Joe Flacco's passing records, all while challenging Michael Vick's quarterback rushing yards record once thought to be totally unreachable. While he hasn't got to a Super Bowl, Jackson has been everything the Ravens could have hoped he would be, and then some.
