Baltimore Ravens: 3 All-Time Best Players At Every Position
The 3 Best Cornerbacks In Ravens History:
1. Chris McAlister: Chris McAlister takes the number one spot on the list, because he played with the Ravens the longest, though Starks is very much his equal. McAlister had 343 tackles and 26 interceptions in his 11 year career. He was the most physical cornerback I have ever seen.
2. Duane Starks: The Ravens 2000 defense was lucky enough to have two great cornerbacks. Starks was the 10th overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. He recorded 20 of his 25 career interceptions as a Raven. He had three interceptions in the 2000 playoff run, including one he returned for a touchdown in the Super Bowl.
3. Jimmy Smith: Boy, did we learn the importance of Jimmy Smith this season. Smith who defended Michael Crabtree in the end zone in Super Bowl XLVII, has been a top tier cornerback for the Ravens. When he is on the field, the defense is dramatically better.
