5. Kyu Blu Kelly may not make the Baltimore Ravens roster

One of the more fascinating notes from the Ravens preseason opener was their usage at cornerback. With Marlon Humphrey, Rock Ya-Sin, Jalyn Armour-Davis, and both slot options out, there was a chance for someone like Kyu Blu Kelly to show himself.

However, instead of that, the Ravens shifted Brandon Stephens back from safety to cornerback, and they started Kevon Seymour. Seymour played a surprising 63 snaps. He is a veteran and probably earned the snaps over Kelly, but you would think that the team wanted to see their draft pick in his debut for an extended look, not the veteran journeyman.

Kelly did not get into the game until late. He finished with just 17 snaps. Some names who played more than him include Jordan Swann, Jeremy Lucien, Malik Hamm, and Kelle Sanders. All of them are rookie UDFAs, and all of them not only got on the field sooner and they played longer. Considering how weak the cornerback depth is, this is fascinating.

Kelly played 10 snaps on special teams, but he was not great in that role either. The injuries keep bumping him up the roster, but it appears he cannot latch onto a job.
