Some dude named Bart Scott
Ravens LB, and he demonstrated last year that he can play.

He's also your AFC defensive player of the month. Personally, I thought Shawne Merriman has looked like the most dominating AFC defensive player; but San Diego had a bye in the first month and the Ravens did not, so Scott had a greater opportunity to pad stats.
When linebacker Bart Scott was asked on Wednesday afternoon how it felt to lead the NFL with five sacks, he replied: "It is flattering, but it's early yet. It's a marathon; they don't give out prizes for the first month or the first three games of the season."
Scott spoke too soon; later in the day, he was named the AFC defensive player of the month. Scott [is] a former undrafted rookie who is in his first full season as a starter
