As we get closer to the 2023 NFL season, we will be looking back at the Baltimore Ravens roster and ranking each player from the 90th man down to number one. This will be looking at how much of an impact these players can have on the 2023 season in particular.
We are still early in the list as we look to Jordan Swann, a rookie cornerback.
Baltimore Ravens roster ranking: No. 88 CB Jordan Swann
Jordan Swann took a longer path to the NFL; he finished his sixth season in college last year. He started his career at UConn but did not play much. He transferred to Maine and redshirted that year before playing two seasons.
However, after the pandemic season, he transferred to James Madison. With all of that said, Jordan Swann has 1,768 snaps in his career and just 995 snaps in coverage. That inexperience and age are the reasons he went undrafted.
He also did not test well at his Pro Day and is a bit on the smaller side. The Baltimore Ravens may be looking at him as a slot player in the NFL, but he only has 46 slot snaps during his collegiate career.
So, if he does move out to the slot, the result may be one season on the practice squad before getting involved. If he does not move to the slot, the result is definitely going to be missing the roster and maybe struggling to make the practice squad.
The cornerback room is not loaded with talent beyond Marlon Humphrey, but it definitely is deeper than you would want if you are a rookie UDFA. Rock Ya-Sin, Trayvon Mullen, and Daryl Worley all have NFL experience that will be hard to beat.
Then, there is Jalyn Armour-Davis, and Kyu Blu Kelly, who hold draft status above him. That does not bring in Pepe Williams or Kayvon Seymour; the list seems to go on.
The Baltimore Ravens are smart to try to add as much cornerback depth as possible, but they may have only landed someone like Swann because a rookie UDFA will have a hard time making this roster.
