Ideally, the Ravens keep Corey Graham this offseason and he doesn't trek to Buffalo to get the money he's rightfully owed after the three seasons he spent in Baltimore.

But Graham's price tag got too high after some quality seasons, first as a special teams standout and later as the second and third corner. All Graham wanted was a chance in Baltimore, and he did more than folks thought with his opportunity. But his departure leaves a void to be filled. With the Ravens deciding not to take a cornerback in the first three rounds of the draft, the door is open for Chykie Brown to take the spot.

As of now, the job appears to be coming down to Brown and Asa Jackson. Conventional wisdom would suggest Brown has the upper hand for the spot.

"Asa's my man, but business is business," Brown told The Baltimore Sun. "I'm going for that third spot, and I pray I have a good season and I stay healthy. I feel confident. I feel good about how everything is going."

Is it ever too early to start thinking about fantasy football?

Probably not. And Slater Jackson at Purple Reign Show wants to make sure you guys get a good grasp on which Ravens players could boom or bust this season in the fake football game.

As of now, only two players are in their position's top 10, according to Jackson.
