2. Rock Ya-Sin is expected to start for the Baltimore Ravens

When the Baltimore Ravens let Marcus Peters walk in free agency, the thought was that there would be a competition at cornerback. The team has Rock Ya-Sin, Trayvon Mullen, Kyu Bly Kelly, and Jayln Armour-Davis just to name a few outside options.

Considering Ya-Sin was actually the last of the players to be added to the roster the thought was that he may have to compete for his job. However, everything we have seen so far points to the contrary. Rock Ya-Sin is going to start for the Baltimore Ravens on the outside, barring anything crazy happening. The question is more about the slot and the number four guy.

This may not be too surprising when you break it all down. Yes, Ya-Sin was the last signed, but he probably waited until after the draft to find his best chance to start. He did not want to sign and then find out the team he signed with drafted a cornerback high. When the Ravens took Zay Flowers, Rock Ya-Sin was in.

Still, the fact that there is not even a sign of competition despite the Ravens having so many depth options is a win for the veteran cornerback. We will see if anyone gets more time to mix in when training camp comes.
