Candidates: Chykie Brown, Domonique Franks, Asa Jackson, Tramain Jacobs, Marrio Norman, Deji Olatoye, Sammy Seamster Current favorites: Browns, Jackson Rising: Jackson, Jacobs Falling: Franks Skinny: Cornerback depth is the Ravens' biggest concern with Lardarius Webb, the team's top player at the position, still sidelined with a back injury and Aaron Ross out for the season after tearing his Achilles tendon. Brown, the favorite for the third cornerback role coming into training camp, had a brutal start. But he has played much better over the past couple days. Jackson has had a strong camp, but at 5 feet 10 and 182 pounds, there are questions about how he'd hold up physically on the outside. Jacobs, an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M, has opened up a lot of eyes, and he looks to have the inside track for a roster spot. Fellow undrafted free agents Olatoye and Seamster have also had their moments. A veteran, Franks took a couple days to pass his conditioning test and has made little impact thus far. At this point, Brown and Jackson are still ahead of the rest of the candidates, but the Ravens are still looking externally for upgrades at the position.
