Patrick Queen (born August 13, 1999) is an American football inside linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at LSU and was drafted 28th overall by the Ravens in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Born to Dwayne and Mary Sue Queen, Queen grew up in Ventress, Louisiana as the youngest (and only boy) of four children. He played football in middle school at False River Academy before moving on to high school. He later attended Livonia High School, where he played on the football team as both a linebacker and running back. Queen was a member of Livonia High School's 2014 state championship football team. As a senior in 2016, he rushed for 1,487 yards and 19 touchdowns on offense and had 66 tackles, seven tackles for losses, and six passes broken up on defense. Queen participated in the 2014 National Combine, and received first team honors as a cornerback.
Despite his four-star prospect rating, Queen had relatively few offers from Power Five conference schools, particularly the Southeastern Conference, where he had long been interested in playing. Queen's early offers came from smaller schools Tulane, Louisiana, Louisiana–Monroe, Colorado State, McNeese State, Louisiana Tech, and South Florida before receiving offers from Nebraska, Indiana, and his preferred destination of LSU, where he committed without any additional school visits on February 28, 2016. Queen became the first player from Livonia to receive a scholarship from LSU. Queen's recruiting profile was complex, as each major sports recruiting website listed him at a different position. 247Sports, which listed him as a versatile athlete,[note 1] ranked him as the 17th best ATH in the country, and the 12th best player from Louisiana. Rivals, which listed him as an outside linebacker, ranked him as the 13th best OLB in his class and 8th best recruit from Louisiana. ESPN.com, which listed him as a running back, ranked him the 30th best RB in the country and the 14th best recruit from Louisiana.
