NEW ORLEANS -- Offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden became the first player drafted by the Ravens to be elected into the Hall of Fame.
Ogden was voted into the Hall in his first year of eligibility. He was an 11-time Pro Bowl player who was considered the best left tackle of his generation.
He is the fourth player to play for the Ravens to reach the Hall of Fame, joining defensive back Rod Woodson, tight end Shannon Sharpe and cornerback Deion Sanders.
Ogden was the first draft pick by the Ravens, who selected him with the fourth overall pick in 1996.
