OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- It was 11 years ago when linebacker Ray Lewis campaigned for the Baltimore Ravens to draft a defensive tackle and the team selected Haloti Ngata in the first round.

At the start of this year's offseason training program, quarterback Joe Flacco indicated he wouldn't take the same approach. Flacco said he isn't going to lobby general manager Ozzie Newsome and other Ravens officials to address offense in this year's draft, even though no one would blame him if he did.
