Baltimore Ravens: Top 10 Draft Picks in Team History
Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

No franchise has a better draft track record since 1996 than the Baltimore Ravens.

Since they entered the NFL, the Ravens have drafted 13 All-Pro players. New England and Tennessee are tied for second with 10 All Pro selections since 1996.

The driving force of Baltimore's success has been general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome.

Since he joined the Ravens 17 years ago, Newsome has helped guide the organization in making each of their 126 draft picks. That comes out to 67 defensive selections, 57 offensive selections and two punters.

The Ravens made their most selections at two positions: defensive back (20) and wide receiver (19). It seems like Newsome knew it was a passing league before the NFL knew itself.

His very first pick, Jonathan Ogden, was recently elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. One day later, Newsome was hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy for a second time.

Not bad.

Of all those picks, who should be considered among the very best? Players like Ogden and Ray Lewis are no-brainers. Which was a better pick, though? Which other selections should be included in a list of their 10 best?
