Lamar Jackson placed high expectations on Patrick Queen on Thursday night, when the reigning NFL MVP connected the Baltimore Ravens’ first-round pick with one of the greatest middle linebackers to ever play.
After the Ravens used the No. 28 overall pick on Queen, Jackson shouted, “Ray Lewis Jr.!” on Instagram Live.
Asked about the comparison to Lewis, Queen said Thursday night, “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. 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.”

Lewis reached 13 Pro Bowls in 17 NFL seasons (1996 to 2012), winning two Super Bowls and two NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018.
