Former UCLA offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden was inducted on Saturday into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Ogden, the first-ever draft choice of the Baltimore Ravens, was selected with the fourth pick of the first round of the 1996 NFL Draft. He played tackle for 12 seasons with Baltimore, from 1996-2007, and went on to appear in 11 straight Pro Bowls. In 2001, Baltimore won Super Bowl XXXV against the N.Y. Giants.

Ogden, who was given a 2013 Super Bowl ring by the Ravens, made the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility and, at 39 years old, is its youngest member.

The Class of 2013 also included Cris Carter, Dave Robinson, Larry Allen, Bill Parcells, Curley Culp and Warren Sapp.

Ogden was a four-year starter (41 career starts) at offensive tackle for UCLA in the 1992-95 seasons under Hall of Fame head coach Terry Donahue. He won the 1995 Outland Trophy, was runner-up for the Lombardi Award and earned consensus All-America honors that season. Ogden was selected All-Pac-10 Conference following the 1994 and 1995 campaigns and was awarded the Morris Trophy, as the conference's best offensive lineman in 1995. He helped the Bruins to a share of the Pac-10 title in 1993 and an appearance in the 1994 Rose Bowl. Ogden's #79 jersey was retired in February of 1997, the eighth player in school history to receive that honor. He was inducted into the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame in 2006.
