Despite NFL Top 100 Ranking, Ravens' Ngata Humble

Even though defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was the highest-ranked player on the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL Top 100 Players of 2012, he still doesn't even consider himself the best player on the team. In a story on, Ngata was considered the third-best defensive player on the list behind New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis (5th) and Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware (6th).

However, Ngata feels he couldn't do what he does without the benefit of having All-Pro's Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs around him. Both Suggs (11th) and Lewis (20th) made the NFL Top 100 list, but were not nearly as highly-ranked as Haloti.

As the story says, it's nice to see a player as good as Ngata humble enough to be willing to share the credit with his teammates, especially veterans who were there before him and obviously contribute to his success on such a solid defensive team.
