Dwan Edwards: Where is he now?

When you bring up the name “Dwan Edwards” to a Ravens fan, there comes a slight pause, followed by a, “Who?” If this describes you — and I’m guessing it does — no worries. Doesn’t mean you’re not a true fan. It just means that Edwards may not have made an impression on you the way Haloti Ngata does. Edwards was selected in the second round of the 2004 NFL Draft...

In Ravens’ draft history, which DTs are the best?

As any diehard football fan knows, the game is generally won or lost in the trenches. Since 1996, the Ravens have had immense success drafting their share of big-bodied defensive linemen. This success is no coincidence with Ozzie Newsome at the helm, and the Ravens’ scouting department has proven over the years that they love imposing, yet mobile, men up front.  So let’s take...

Could this be Ngata’s last year in Baltimore?

The Ravens are a franchise predicated on defense — tough, stingy defense, at that.  And for all of the praise that Ray Lewis garnered (rightfully so, mind you) for his stalwart career, much of his success would be impossible had it not been for the mammoths in the middle. The unsung heroes of successful defenses, defensive tackles are responsible for occupying space and blockers...

The best DE drafted by the Ravens might not be obvious…

In going through the Ravens’ impressive draft history, it seems like there would be a surefire Hall of Famer staking claim to the title of best defensive end.  In truth though, they just flat out haven’t drafted many defensive ends.  For this exercise, we’re going to count Terrell Suggs and Peter Boulware as outside linebackers, and Haloti Ngata as a defensive tackle.  All...

Bears could look within NFC North to rebuild defense

As the Chicago Bears look to rebuild their defense, they could start by poaching some players from their division rivals. The Bears have a lot of holes on their defense and their division rivals have a lot of quality veterans who are due to hit free agency and would be immediate upgrades for the Bears. Like the Bears, the Green Bay Packers struggled defensively last season, but they...
