5 Fun Facts About Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens

Filed under: 5 Fun Facts — by Mark on September 13, 2014

Ray Rice broke into the NFL as a rookie out of Rutgers University in 2008. He made an immediate impression and in very short time made his move up the ranks and by the second season was named the starting running back for the Baltimore Ravens. He and quarterback Joe Flacco became the face of the Ravens’ offense, eventually leading the team to a victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII following the 2012 season.

Here are five fun facts about Ray Rice.

No Wonder They Drafted Him

Ray Rice was timed with a 4.37 second 40 yard dash, had a 39.5 inch vertical leap, and turned in a 10 foot and one inch broad jump at the 2008 NFL Scouting Combine held prior to the NFL Draft.

What’s in a Number?

Prior to wearing #27, which he has worn throughout his NFL career, Ray Rice wore jersey #39 during preseason of his rookie year. When cornerback Ronnie Prude was cut it freed up number 27 which Rice had worn in college.

Per Carry? Are You Serious?!?

In a 2009 win over Detroit, Ray Rice carried the ball 13 times for 166 yards which gave him a per carry average of 12.77 yards.

First Touchdowns!

Ray Rice’s first NFL touchdown came on a nine yard run in a win over the Browns in 2009. His first playoff touchdown came on an 83 yard run in a win over the Patriots following the 2009 season.

Finally!

In a loss to the Bengals on December 29, 2013 in the last game of the 2013 regular season, Ray Rice scored the very first two point conversion of his NFL career.
