2. Ray Lewis – 31 Interceptions

Now this one I barely even need to write about. Every true Ravens fan knows the story of Ray Lewis, who was selected with the Ravens second-ever draft pick in 1996. Then, 21 years later, Lewis’ legacy is bigger than ever and he’s considered the greatest player in Baltimore Ravens’ history.

Lewis played 17 seasons for the Baltimore Ravens, winning two Super Bowls, going to 13 Pro Bowls, winning Defensive Player of The Year twice, and winning Super Bowl MVP in 2000.

In Lewis’ second year he led the league with 184 tackles, then after two more great seasons Ray Lewis would lead the Ravens to a Super Bowl, in which he led a defense which has been coined “The greatest ever in a season.”

Lewis would go on consistently leading the NFL in tackles until he showed signs of wear and tear as injuries became more prominent. This led to him retiring following the 2012 season, in which he won his second Super Bowl, ending a 17-year triumphant career spent entirely in Baltimore.
