With the 55th pick of the 2008 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens picked Ray Rice, a running back out of Rutgers. Since entering the league, Rice has rushed for 5,520 yards on 1,216 carries with 33 touchdowns. That places Rice sixth in the NFL in rushing and seventh in attempts in that span.
Rice has played in all 16 games each of the last four seasons and has become one of the best dual threats in the NFL. Rice was an integral part of the Ravens' Super Bowl win in 2012.
