In light of the recent article on baltimoreravens.com where Ozzie discusses his 2 favorite draft selections (Duane Starks and Jamal Lewis), I thought it might be fun to discuss each of our individual favorite selections.

It doesn't have to be the best selection, just your personal favorite. It could be because a certain player was a favorite of yours in college and we nabbed him... Maybe you love the maneuvering that went into a certain pick, or maybe the pick simply became your favorite player.

Whatever the reason please explain and have a little fun reminiscing!

--

My personal favorite pick was Dennis Pitta. It was the first draft that I got reqlly in to and spent a lot of time evaluating prospects beyond the top-rated, big name players. I loved him as a prospect going into the draft. I felt he was a bit under rated at the time partially because of his age and limited experience playing TE. I really wanted the Ravens to draft him and was pretty disappointed when we took Dickson.

I thought after the Dickson pick that any chance of getting Pitta was gone especially with Todd Heap still on the roster. Then, we decided to double dip at the position and they took him.

Probably because he was one of the first under-the-radar prospects that I invested time in evaluating and was pretty accurate on, because of how badly I wanted him on the team, and the disappointment followed by complete surprise when we picked him after already drafting Dickson - this is my favorite pick.

And having recently learned behind the scenes info about another team offering 3 picks to the ravens to try and get Pitta just made it that much cooler to me.

So what's yours?

Ray Lewis.
No doubt in my mind.

Jamal Lewis would be second.

Ray Lewis, Joe Flacco and Ed Reed. Just my love for these guys. I pretty much started liking the Ravens because of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and as for Flacco He's the only other jersey that I own I hope hes a Raven for the rest of his career and helps deliver more SBs :D

Going to be a hipster and not name any of the big guys because they are given and too mainstream B)

Pitta is a good choice. I like Art Jones, too, dude came in and busted his butt from day 1. Yanda was/is like that, as well.

Gonna be a hipster too and say Arthur Brown. It's just because I, [most of us] wanted it to happen so bad and we did it. I wasn't disappointed when we grabbed Elam, I just thought because of that, we had no chance to grab Brown.

To add a new name to the list: Jared Gaither

 

Hoped we would pick him up in the supp. draft and I was stoked when we did. He could have been a hall of famer if he had any passion/heart/toughness.

All time is probably Jonathan Ogden. I love a good olineman. Currently I'd say Torrey Smith or Lardarius Webb.

Other than obvious choices Reed, Lewis, Lewis, Ogden etc.

 

Mine would be Jarret Johnson

 

Really good value in the 4th round.

Sergio Kindle ... But seriously, if only he didn't crack his dome, the guy could have been a savage for us.

Hard to pick favorites over the already obvious choices, but I liked guys like Chris McAlister and Todd Heeeap. 2 solid guys that I wished would have finished their careers in Baltimore just like they started

Recently A. Brown(steal) or Elam. I didnt hate the Torrey Smith pick but I didnt expect him to come as far as he has within 2 seasons.

Torrey Smith.  I just did not believe he'd be there.  Titus Young was drafted before Torrey Smith, as was Leonard Hankerson.
