Cornerback is a position that the Ravens have done a poor of job of addressing this offseason. After letting Corey Graham depart in free agency, Baltimore did nothing in free agency or the draft to replace him.
Graham played in 1,293 defensive snaps over the past two seasons, so there's a lot of playing time up for grabs.
As of now, Asa Jackson, Chykie Brown, Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb are the only cornerbacks with any NFL experience on the roster.
Webb and Smith are two quality starters, Brown played in just 39 defensive snaps in 2013, and Jackson was only used on special teams.
Entering his fourth NFL season, Brown has a golden opportunity to make an impact on the Ravens defense in 2014. According to Bo Smolka of CSN Baltimore, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has talked with Brown about this coming season being his chance to shine: "At the pre-draft news conference, Newsome said, 'Every time I walk past Chykie, he’s saying, "This is my chance," and I say, ‘Yes, it is.'"
Judging by Baltimore's reluctance to add another corner in NFL free agency or the draft, it looks like the team believes Brown is ready to answer the challenge in 2014.
