Top 50 Baltimore Ravens

You have to feel for the city of Cleveland when you discuss the Baltimore Ravens.

You know the story. Cleveland Browns owner, Art Modell, relocated the team to Baltimore in 1996 and as part of the settlement with the city of Cleveland the history and logo of the Browns remained in Northern Ohio. This renders for historical (and for our) purposes a franchise that has a history that begins in 1996 and anything done prior to that has nothing to do with our list.

The Baltimore Ravens accomplished what the original (and current) incarnation has failed to do. They are two time Super Bowl Champions (XXXV) and (XLVII) and fit in just fine in the AFC North, one of the most bruising divisions in the National Football League.

This list is up to the end of the 2014 regular season.

Note: Football lists are based on an amalgamation of tenure, traditional statistics, advanced statistics, playoff statistics and post-season accolades.
For a brief period of time, Anquan Boldin was one of the elite Wide Receivers of the National Football League and when he was a Raven would help the franchise win Super Bowl XLVII.  As a Raven, Boldin won a Super Bowl Ring and netted over 2,500 Yards.
Travis Taylor, the MVP of the 1999 Orange Bowl,would shortly thereafter win a Super Bowl Ring with the Baltimore Raven in the 35th big game.  Taylor’s best season was in 2002 where he had over 800 Yards Receiving.
Dawan Landry gave the Baltimore Ravens four good seasons (he was injured for most of one) in the Strong Safety position and showed toughness coming back from a spinal injury to reclaim his starting job in 2009.  That would earn him the Ed Block Courage award for Baltimore that year.
Qadry Ismail was never a Pro Bowl Wide Receiver, but he had three good seasons in Baltimore, two of which saw him exceed 1,000 Yards Receiving and he also caught a 47 Yard pass in his team’s Super Bowl XXXV win.  Ismail would score 18 Touchdowns for the franchise.

Vinny Testaverde did not have much of a winning record in his two years in Baltimore (he was with the organization in Cleveland for three years) but in the first season in Baltimore, he would make the Pro Bowl.  The pivot would hurl 51 Touchdowns, which is an acceptable amount for a two year period.
A Special Teams Player in his rookie year, Ed Hartwell would be promoted to the starting Left Inside Linebacker for three seasons.  He would have over 300 combined tackles as a Raven.
Arriving to Baltimore as part of the franchise relocation, Michael Jackson would be a Raven for three seasons and in 1996 would lead the NFL in Receiving Touchdowns.  That would be the only year in his career where he exceeded 1,000 Receiving Yards.
While Trevor Pryce was a far more effective football player when he was with Denver (winning two Super Bowls and going to four Pro Bowls), as a member of the Baltimore Ravens later in his career he was still a decent pass rusher and brought an additional veteran presence to the defensive side of the ball.
Chris Chester would have his best years with the Baltimore Ravens and the Offensive Lineman form Oklahoma would start 47 Games at Right Guard for the Ravens.
For a short time, Running Back, Willis McGahee was the hottest commodity in the NCAA, and later a star in the NFL.  McGahee would make his first of two Pro Bowls as a Raven.
Still with the Baltimore Ravens as of this writing, Sam Koch was one of the few punters to be drafted (he played his college ball at Nebraska) and the choice has proven well for the team.  Koch would make the Pro Bowl in 2015 and to date has been in the top ten in Yards per Punt four times.  He…
Undrafted and with a brief (of course it was brief) career in the XFL, Bennie Anderson emerged as the starting Right Guard for the Baltimore Ravens for four years, proving to be an effective player on the O-Line.
