Best and Worst: Ravens Draft History 1996-2000

The NFL Draft is only one day away (finally no more Mock Drafts) and fans around the league are happy to focus on football and not labor issues. As I clicked around the Internet this morning I came across a breakdown of the Baltimore Ravens draft history at Ravens Insider – the Best and Worst of each Draft class.

Without further ado here are my picks.

1996

BEST: Ray Lewis, LB, Miami, First Round – The Ravens hit a home run (LT- Jonathan Ogden #4 Overall pick) and follow it up with a grand slam in the first round of their first draft. (Is that even possible?) Two Hall of Famers in a draft isn’t too shabby. Note that Lewis was the Fifth Linebacker selected behind players such as Kevin Hardy and John Mobley.

WORST: Deron Jenkins, CB, Tennessee, Third Round – The team traded three picks (In the 3rd, 4th and 7th) to get Jenkins. He only notched two interceptions in four seasons and has to be one of the All-Time Biggest Busts of the franchise.
