This is the Ravens' most vulnerable group, but it should get better. Cary Williams (pictured) has been a pleasant surprise though he gets picked on a lot. Lardarius Webb has done well as a starting cornerback but might be bumped when the injured Jimmy Smith returns. Injuries to Tom Zbikowski and Haruki Nakamura have thinned the depth at safety, which lives and dies with Pro Bowl player Ed Reed. Reed filled several roles against the Jets, including punt returner.
