5. Rod Woodson – 20 Interceptions

Rod Woodson is tied with our number four on the list but played four more games than the fourth-ranked player. Woodson joined the Baltimore Ravens in 1998, just two years after the inaugural Ravens season. He then left the Ravens in 2001 and played with the Oakland Raiders for two years until retiring in 2003.

Anyone can undoubtedly say that Woodson had some of his best years in the Ravens purple and black. Throughout his four-year tenure with the Ravens, he averaged five interceptions each year, had his career high in pick sixes which was two, won a Super Bowl with the Ravens, and also led the league in interceptions with seven in 1999.

Woodson ended his career with 14 Pro Bowl nominations, six first-team All-Pro and two second-team All-Pro selections, an NFL Defensive Player of the Year award, and an AFC Player of the Year award, all of which contributed to his induction into the Hall of Fame.

Also, an interesting fact about Woodson: he holds the NFL record for most pick-sixes in a career with 12!
