2. The cornerback and the safety room are nearly finalized

Harbaugh wasn't as crystal-clear when discussing secondary as he was when he made clear that Tyler Huntley is the go-to QB2 of the franchise, but his comments shed enough light to pencil in the final cornerback and safety rooms ahead of the 53-man roster announcement.

Starting with the players locked into the final roster, those would be CBs Marlon Humphrey, Rock Ya-Sin, Ronald Darby, and Brandon Stephens, and S Kyle Hamilton, Marcus Williams, Geno Stone, and Daryl Worley.

Harbaugh mentioned Brandon Stephens in his post-practice presser, and he also spoke highly and most interestingly about sophomore corner Jalyn Armour-Davis.

"[JAD] is anxious, he wants to get back out there," Harbaugh said after his player left the practice field earlier than expected on Saturday. "He might play Monday. If he doesn't, he should be fine next week. Very hopeful for him to get out there and play."

The sophomore left practice and didn't return, but coach Harbs is confident he could play as early as Monday, and later if not then. Pencil him in as a final-roster piece.

After the addition of Ronald Darby and with Brandon Stephens poised to adapt to the team's needs whether that means playing cornerback or safety, the secondary is basically set.

Nickel corner and pre-training-camp signing Arthur Maulet is another lock if only because the team needs someone to man the slot, and that's already nine players in the secondary.

Last season, the Ravens boasted 10 defensive backs, so the only spot left to fill that quota would come down to one of Kyu Kelly, Kevon Seymour, or Ar'Darius Washington. Don't expect more signings here as this is pretty much a fulfilled unit.
