The Ravens are not interested in winning the free agency Super Bowl. However, they will sign free agents on the open market to what Newsome calls “the right player at the right price.” You will rarely see the Ravens pay an Albert Haynesworth a $100M contract for example. They will sign a key addition like Vonta Leach in 2011.Newsome makes his money on draft day, where they draft the best player on their board more so than drafting for need. Newsome has a knack for drafting late-round talent who grow into starters for the Ravens:Lardarius Webb (third round in 2009)Marshal Yanda (third round in 2007)Adalius Thomas (sixth round in 2000)Jarret Johnson (fourth round in 2003) The Ravens, along with the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers, are among the best NFL teams during the Draft under the leadership of team president Ozzie Newsome. The Baltimoreans call the phenomenon “In Ozzie We Trust.”Since relocating from Cleveland in 1996, the Ravens have won two Super Bowls, and have fielded a defense that has ranked in the top-half of the NFL in points against, yards against, and turnover differential since winning their first Super Bowl in 2000.I humbly submit to you the five biggest draft day memories in Baltimore Ravens’ history.Feel free to comment if you agree or disagree. SOURCES:Pro-Football-Reference.comwww.profootballhof.com
