OWINGS MILLS -- Five Baltimore Ravens were named to the Pro Bowl today, all first-round draft picks, including linebacker Ray Lewis, offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden, safety Ed Reed, cornerback Chris McAlister and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs.
Suggs is the lone first-time all-star.
This will be Ogden's eighth consecutive Pro Bowl appearance. Lewis, twice the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, is going for the seventh time.
This will be Reed and McAlister's second Pro Bowl berths.
Suggs, last year's NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and No. 10 overall pick of the first round, was surprised to make it.
As for Reed, he had little apparent joy in making the game.
"The Pro Bowl doesn't make me," Reed said.
Kicker Matt Stover was named a first alternate for the second year in a row.
