Ravens Select Suggs With 10th Pick
The ex-Sun Devil great hurt his draft status with a pair sub par workouts. For a league that tends to over emphasize physical attributes, a 4.8 40 time and 19 reps of 225 pounds didn't bode well for a player who last month was considered a bona fide top 3 pick. Some may argue that an off-field fighting incident, which involved the defensive end, may have made a bad situation even worse. Suggs has always claimed, and rightfully so, that he's a football player that doesn't chase quarterbacks from 40 yards out. The Ravens who desperately need a pass rusher were filled with joy when Suggs fell into their laps at number 10. Suggs will be reunited with ex-teammate and pro bowler Todd Heap, and will learn the tricks of the trade from one of the best linebackers in the business – Ray Lewis. As a player who holds the NCAA Division I record for sacks (24), being picked only at number 10 could be interrupted as a slap in the face. Suggs didn't boast about proving wrong the teams that skipped over him, but he will undoubtedly keep that notion in his mind as he lines up every Sunday. If things go his way, the player nicknamed T-Sizzles could emerge as the hottest rookie in the upcoming 2003 NFL season.
