1996. Ray Lewis (Pick: Keyshawn Johnson)
The 1996 NFL Draft replenished the league with boatloads of talented players, including future Hall of Fame players like offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden, safety Brian Dawkins, and wide receivers Marvin Harrison and Terrell Owens. But regardless of how some fans might feel about him, virtually nobody would will question that Ray Lewis was the top player from this year’s class.
For generations to come, Lewis — a nine-time All-Pro and two-time Super Bowl champion — will always be mentioned among the greatest linebackers in NFL history.
