How thin are the Ravens at cornerback?
After letting Corey Graham depart in free agency, Asa Jackson, Chykie Brown, Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb are the only cornerbacks on the roster right now.
Webb and Smith are quality starters, but behind them is a lot of uncertainty. Brown and Jackson combined to play just 39 defensive snaps in 2013, and they can't be counted on to play significant snaps in 2014 and hold up in coverage.
Letting Graham walk without a replacement in mind was a bad move by Baltimore. Graham essentially was a starter in 2013, grabbing a team-high four interceptions to go with 12 passes defensed.
The NFL draft is still a month away, and the free-agent market for cornerbacks is dangerously thin as well. Asante Samuel and Jabari Greer are arguably the two best corners still on the market, but there's a reason both of them are still unsigned and not generating interest from other teams.
Samuel was cut this offseason by the Atlanta Falcons after missing five games due to injury in 2013, and he's 33, so his level of play isn't going to improve.
Greer is coming off a torn ACL that cost him the final six games in '13, and the 32-year-old veteran is also on the wrong side of 30.
Adding a cornerback in free agency is not out of the question. That being said, it might be smarter at this point to wait until the draft to find a young corner to upgrade and solidify the thinnest position on the roster.
