We continue our pursuit of the Baltimore Ravens All-Time team. So far we have touched down on the positions of center and safety.

The plan is to carry only one center and hope that one of the guards we select has the ability to fill in at center. We’ll ask your help selecting those guards in a subsequent piece. As for center it appears from the voting thus far that Matt Birk remains the overwhelming favorite.

At safety we will carry three and so far the preferred choices are Ed Reed, Rod Woodson and Dawan Landry.

In this round we’ll tackle the tailback position. We’ll carry three featured backs and the nominees are:
