Starters: Jimmy Smith, Lardarius Webb, Will Hill, Kendrick Lewis

Backups: Kyle Arrington, Tray Walker, Brynden Trawick, Anthony Levine, Terrence Brooks, Rashaan Melvin

Practice Squad: Nick Perry, Charles James

The Ravens are much deeper at both the cornerback and safety positions than they were last season after bringing in veterans in Arrington and Lewis to fill the void.  Hill is back on a new deal and should benefit from a full offseason with the Ravens as well.

Walker, a fourth round pick, looked lost this preseason and won’t be rushed into action.  Brooks is recovering from a season ending injury but looked good in limited preseason action.  He figures to be brought along slowly.

Both Perry and James offer upside on the practice squad.  Perry was impressive this offseason and drew glowing reviews from the coaching staff.  James was a fan favorite on this season’s Hard Knocks with the Houston Texans for his relentless motor and high effort play.
