Check out Jonathan Ogden's Hall of Fame Speech.

Jonathan Ogden became the youngest NFL player ever inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night.

He was a mammoth left tackle at 6-9 and 345 pounds. Last Monday, Ozzie Newsome said the Ravens never had to worry about which defensive ends they were going against in a particular week because Ogden would neutralize them.

Ogden truly was one of the greatest left tackles to ever play the game.

Ogden opened the Hall of Fame ceremony by speaking first. He touched on a a variety of topics in his speech, which lasted under 15 minutes. He almost cried, it seemed, but held back tears. He thanked his parents, his grandparents, family and friends.

He thanked his high school teammates and coaches, and those that saw him find success in college at UCLA in both football and track.

Ogden also thanked the Ravens' organization for bringing him on board in 1996 as the organization's first-ever draft pick.
