Following high school, Queen attended LSU. he played as a true freshman at the linebacker position, which aligned best with his abilities, and stayed on the defensive side throughout his collegiate career. He has the kind of speed that can close on a quarterback or a running back very rapidly.

The athletic linebacker made eight tackles, 2.5 of which were for a loss, and he had a combined sack. These numbers earned Queen Defensive MVP honors for the game, which proved to be his last in the NCAA. Soon after, Queen made a career-altering announcement via Twitter:

Queen impressed enough out of Ravens camp that he was named to the team out of the gate. In his first game, Queen had a combined eight tackles (a team high), a forced fumble and a sack. He has continued his impressive play through the season and has maintained his starting position. This is one hell of a force player that should be in your collection right now.
