“When you think about Ray Lewis, you think about an elite linebacker -- speed, physicality, aggression, dominance. I feel like I'm more mobile than he was,” Queen said. “Not taking anything away from him, he was a great linebacker, probably the best to play. But I've got a lot to live up to. The bar is set high.”

Baltimore selected Queen No. 28 overall.

Lewis was selected No. 26 overall. He was a part of a ferocious defense that helped Baltimore win its first Super Bowl during the 2000 season. He would lead the league in tackles three times and finish with 2,059 of them. He also recorded 41 1/2 sacks and 31 interceptions.
