1. Ray Lewis
Could it really be anyone else? The surefire first ballot Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, did everything a fan could a Ravens fan could ask for. The charismatic Linebacker was on both Super Bowl Championship Teams, and was named the MVP in his first one.

Do you want more accolades?

Lewis was named the Defensive Player of the Year twice, a thirteen time Pro Bowler and a seven time First Team All Pro Selection. Lewis the career tackling leader for the Ravens, had 41.5 Quarterback Sacks, 31 Interceptions and was the locker room leader for over a decade.

There could be no other person who could top this list and nobody else in the 2000’s who Quarterbacks feared more.
