As the days go by and we wait until the Baltimore Ravens get to training camp, we will be ranking the roster from 90 all the way down to number one throughout the summer. This list will focus on which players have the most significant impact on the 2023 season only.
We are about to close out the 80s as we hit number 81 on our list.
Baltimore Ravens roster ranking: No. 81 Corey Mayfield Jr.
Corey Mayfield Jr. is a rookie UDFA from UTSA. He spent five years with the Road Runners, getting an extra year of eligibility due to the pandemic-shortened season. He came along a bit as a sophomore in 2019 but mainly started for three seasons from 2020 through 2022.
He did not get invited to the NFL combine, but for his size, he had fine overall athletic abilities but nothing that would blow you away. With a fine but not spectacular profile, he fell to the UDFA status.
Corey Mayfield Jr. has more in his profile than other UDFA cornerbacks that we profiled, such as Jeremy Lucien and Jordan Swann. That is what has him over them. However, the cornerback room is deeper than you would think, and it may be tough for the rookie UDFAs to crack the roster.
There are not big names, but there are so many names that it is hard to say that Mayfield can step up. Guys such as Jalyn Armour-Davis and Kyu Blu Kelly have draft capital and as much youth as Mayfield, while Rock Ya-Sin, Trayvon Mullen, and Daryl Worley have much more experience. That does not factor in Marlon Humphrey, who is a lock to be the top cornerback on the roster.
So, the room is not flush with elite names, but there are so many names that Mayfield is going to be an underdog to get onto the roster. He may be the top UDFA rookie cornerback, and after a year on the practice squad, he may shoot up higher before next year, but for now, his best option is to make the Baltimore Ravens practice squad.
