FAN’S CHOICE: Baltimore Ravens All-Time Team, Fullback

Screenshot 2014-07-19 09.19.54

The Ravens for many years were considered to be a smash mouth football team. Play good defense, manage field position, protect the football, take away the football and run the football.

This was a formula that produced many wins and a world championship during the Brian Billick Era.

But to make that formula work you need the right mix of players. On offense this approach only works with a solid fullback and throughout the Ravens history they’ve often fielded a throwback player positioned in front of their tailback that John Madden would be proud of.

So far we’ve vote on 39 of the players we’ll keep on the 53-man roster. Today we’re looking for number 40, a fullback. We’ll ask you to vote for two because the second place finisher we’ll assign to the practice squad, assuming we can slide him through.

Without further ado…

 

 

Which 2 fullbacks are most deserving of the Baltimore Ravens All-Time Team status (1 for practice squad)?
Total voters: 524
Chuck Evans (1%)
Obafemi Ayanbadejo (2%)
Sam Gash (17%)
Ovie Mughelli (4%)
Lorenzo Neal (12%)
Le'Ron McClain (21%)
Vonta Leach (43%)
This poll has completed. Thank you for voting.

    A lot of good options on this list. They were all very good performers for the Ravens, as was the missing Alan Ricard. I went with Leach (the one easy choice) and McClain, but could have easily picked Gash for the second spot.

    I say one thing for the Ravens for their brief history they have had some really good FB’s pass through Baltimore. This was really hard to pick. Neal not enough time spent here. The late Chuck Evans was really underrated.I Knew Chuck Evans really well felt horrible with his untimely death to brain cancer.
    It was hard but went with Leach and McClain. I like how McClain was more of a complete FB that he was able to block and run. Leach was great as a blocker.
    Tony I think you can make a case for Alan Ricard (sp) as a candidate as well. He was a good FB too if my memory serves me well.
