District of Columbia: Jonathan Ogden
If Shawne Merriman could have played a few more years, this would have been a much better debate. He probably would have earned bonus points for playing his college ball close to home at Maryland and not ending up in rival city Baltimore during his pro career. Alas, Jonathan Ogden is undoubtedly the best player to come out of our nation’s capital.
Ogden is a member of both the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He played 12 seasons, all with the Ravens, and made the Pro Bowl every season but his rookie year. At 6’9’’ and 345 pounds, it’s not surprising that Ogden was a dominant lineman who made the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team.
