Overshadowed by superstar safety, Ed Reed, the Baltimore Ravens not only have great, but young depth at the cornerback position, crowded with Dominique Foxworth, Fabian Washington, Chris Carr, and Ladarius Webb.
You may ask yourselves, why would a team with such depth at the position, be ranked so low. The answer to question is consistency. The Ravens will be shuffling and rotating the cornerback position that valuable reps will be taken from what could be a future star.
To explain this, in the 2009 season, each of the four cornerbacks posted average, but solid statistics displayed here:
Chris Carr (7th season) 44 Tackles, two forced fumbles, two interceptions, and 1.5 sacks.
Dominique Foxworth (6th season) 53 tackles, four interceptions
Fabian Washington (6th season) 37 tackles
Ladarius Webb (2nd season) 35 tackles, one sack
Ladarius Webb is obviously the future, but the Ravens may have to trade one of their veterans for a mid round pick or another young corner, as Reed is aging also.
