Cornerbacks: Jimmy Smith, Lardarius Webb, Chykie Brown, Asa Jackson, Tramain Jacobs

We may take heat for choosing Jacobs over Dominique Franks, but we like to live dangerously.  The Ravens know what they are getting in Franks – a substandard starter with a low ceiling who has done nothing but get burned in his three years in the league.  Or, they could keep Jacobs, who has had a stand out camp but is a rookie free agent.  Unfortunately, the team will likely keep Brown because they don’t have many other alternatives.
