NFLN survey/feared player: Ravens
By Jamison Hensley
If players were asked 10 years ago to name the most feared player in the NFL, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis would've won. If you asked that question a couple of years ago, I'm sure some would've said linebacker Terrell Suggs. Even last season, safety Bernard Pierce probably would've received some of the players' votes. (He got two as a member of the Tennessee Titans this year.)
As it stands now, the Ravens don't have players who strike fear in the opposition. At least, not according to ESPN's anonymous survey of 320 NFL players this year.
The most feared player honor goes to Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who received 61 votes. He edged out a teammate, wide receiver Calvin Johnson, by three votes. Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt was third with 24 votes.
