2015 Ravens Depth Chart: Cornerback

New, comments

Examining the Ravens depth at cornerback.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Players:

Jimmy Smith, Lardarius Webb, Kyle Arrington, Tray Walker, Asa Jackson, Cassius Vaughn, Chris Greenwood, Tramain Jacobs, Quinton Pointer, Rashaan Melvin

Guaranteed:

Jimmy Smith

Jimmy is the best corner on the team and he just signed a lucrative extension that keeps him in Baltimore for the rest of the decade. He's guaranteed to make the roster.

Lardarius Webb

He's guaranteed to be on the team; this year. However, if he isn't healthy or if he doesn't return to form, the same can't be said next year when the Ravens can save $3.5 million by cutting him.

Kyle Arrington

The Ravens made it a point to snag this guy after the Patriots released him. He's not getting cut.

Tray Walker

Walker is a fourth round pick, so his spot is guaranteed. Especially seeing as the Ravens have a high opinion of him. That being said, I don't see Walker making the active list very often, but instead I see him sitting behind Webb, Jimmy, and Arrington to develop.

Probable:

Rashaan Melvin

Melvin has five good games under his belt from last year. He's a good development project and a back-up.

In Competion:

Asa Jackson and Cassius Vaughn are fighting for the sixth and last corner spot. I see this battle coming down to who is better at returning kicks and whether Asa is able to stay healthy. Whoever loses is gone.

Practice Squad:

Chris Greenwood, Tramain Jacobs, Quinton Pointer

These three are fighting for one or two practice squad spots. If anyone looks particularly great, one of these guys could push in competition.
