9. Is it Rock Ya-Sin OR Ronald Darby... or maybe Rock Ya-Sin AND Ronald Darby?

In a similar way to how the Ravens tackled the quarterback room in their first depth chart, naming both Tyler Huntley and Josh Johnson as the QB2 for Sunday, they did the same with the opposite cornerback position.

The Ravens listed both free-agent signings Rock Ya-Sin and Ronald Darby as their first-string CB2 opposite Humphrey. That, of course, cannot happen if Humphrey is available, but if he is not quite there yet, then we might already know who will occupy the CB1 and CB2 roles on the outside.

It was widely assumed that Ronald Darby was brought only to cover for Humphrey's injury, but there is a serious chance Darby ends up snatching a starting role opposite Humphrey when the full CB room is healthy.

Expect Ya-Sin and Darby to start on Sunday (barring a miracle recovery by Humphrey), one opposite the other on the outside corner positions. The nickel corner and who will be there, though, is an entirely different question... with a particular player expected to start over there but no clear-cut starter.
