4. Duane Starks – 20 Interceptions

Tied with Rod Woodson is Duane Starks, but considering that Starks got 20 interceptions in 62 games while it took Woodson 64, Starks is placed higher. Starks was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the 1998 Draft with the 10th overall pick.

Starks made an instant impact on the Ravens’ defense, recording five interceptions in his rookie season. The cornerback out of the University of Miami had a great four-year run with the Ravens who, at the time, were one the best defenses in the NFL.

One thing that most Ravens fans think of when they hear the name Duane Starks is his interception in Super Bowl 35 in which he stomped out any last chance the New York Giants had at a comeback.

Despite good years with the Baltimore Ravens, after he left the club in 2001 in free agency to the Arizona Cardinals and never really found the same success with any of his other teams than he did with the Ravens. He would be out of the league altogether in 2008 ending a 10-year career.
