    The New Leaders of the Ravens Defense



    Found it interesting that Suggs tweeted this

    I like Suggs acknowledging that it's time for him and Ngata to step up. If you can't see the picture it's just him and Ngata

    They are the natural heirs to Lewis and Reed given their tenure and status as premier players on this defense.

    I think we'll see other players step up, too. For all we know, McClellan or Bynes is a natural leader.

    I think Webb can be a leader, maybe not the rah rah type but more how he practices and plays.

    I don't know if Jameel McClain will be returning, but I know he's always been an outspoken leader in the locker room.

    Arthur Jones seems like a natural leader too

    I don't know if he'll be here beyond next year. We'll see though.

    I think he's gonna have a big year and get some significant offers.

    They will be just fine, sizzle and Ngata are great players and the whole locker room respects them.

    I worked out that with a projected starting defense that includes Michael Huff at FS, Chris Canty and Art Jones at DE, and McClellan and Bynes at ILB, could have an average age of 24 this year.

    I am hoping Courtney Upshaw will develop into a leader this year.

    I'm pretty sure that a FO draft criterion (though maybe not required) is team captaincy. I recall that from interviews/pressers with Ozzie and Eric over the years.
    If so, that fits perfectly with how comfortable (at least publicly) the FO is with habitually letting vets go.
    Upshaw and KO were captains...not too surprising. Mid-round guys (Gino and Pitta) were captains, but even low round/UDFA cats like Art Jones and McClellan were captains.
    "On their way to the podium, the Ravens FO is going to collectively step over my dead body and select...Breshad Perriman." -- Me, the day before the Draft

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    I guess every player on the defense is a "leader."
