FAN’S CHOICE: Baltimore Ravens All-Time Team, Cornerback

Screenshot 2014-07-07 16.42.22

Ozzie Newsome is on record saying often, “You can never have enough good corners.” And in the modern era of the NFL the declaration is even more valid.

During their 18-year history the Baltimore Ravens have had their fair share of solid corners. Today we’ll take a look back at a list that includes a few major talents who played the position for the purple and black as well as some complementary players who served as very solid nickel corners.

From this list we’ll ask you to select 6 for our Baltimore Ravens All-Time Team consisting of 53 players and an 8-man Practice Squad.

So far we’ve named a center and 3 safeties to the team. We’ve added 2 running backs while voters are still debating the third running back we’ll carry. As of this writing both Willis McGahee and Priest Holmes are tied for that third tailback spot. Your vote HERE could help break that draw.

    I’m shocked Corey “All I Do Is Pick Off Peyton Manning and Help The Ravens Go To SB 47″ Graham is not ranked higher.

ANY FAN THAT REPYS AND MANY DO WITH WACKY COMMENTS SHOULD TRY TO DO WHAT YOU DO WITH YOUR MANY SOURCES!
    NOW AS FAR AS dbS GO…. THIS TEAM HAS HAD VERY FEW GOOD ONES AND PICKING 6 THAT ARE TOP ONES IS NOT NEEDED BECASUIE THEY ARE NOT 6. oNL WEEBB STANDS OUT BECUASE SOM E SOME HAD SHORT CAREERSLIKE sANDERS AND cAREY WILLIAMS. ALL THESE PEOPLE THAT THINK STARKS WAS THAT GOOD NEED TO REVIEW HIS FILM. wE MAY DISAGREE AT TIMES BUT I RESPECT WHAT YOU DO AND HOW YOU DO IT ,KEEPUPTHE GREAT GOOD WORK WE AND BALTIMORE SPORTS NEEDS YOU!

    Starks number one..not even close. Twenty picks in 62 games, pick 6 in the Big game, and a hustler without a concern on or off the field. Ladarius is second, CMAC third.

  4. Ravensrock on said:

    There’s no reason Deion should’ve gotten as many votes as he did. We got him at the end of his career. He had one pick six, and more often than not got toasted worse than Bengals DB’s back in the day.

  5. Mike on said:

    You guys do realize this is based on when they joined the team, not in order from best to worst right? Also, people must have short memories. Our top 3 corners from last year were all top 5 in Ravens history?

  6. Downside52 on said:

    I understand Ozzie wanting to always have extra corners on the team, but any more than 3 or maybe 4 on the “All Time” team and you start to get guys that are a bit of a reach. Whether it is because they had maybe 1-2 good seasons or even just a handful of good games. Did Corey Graham cement his place in Ravens history with his huge game in the divisional round against the Broncos? Sure. Will we always love him for it? Sure. Is one great game or even one great season enough to get someone into the “All Time” list? I dont think so. I like Starks, Webb and McAlister for this list and there is a steep dropoff after those three in terms of sustained contribution.

  7. Vic on said:

    Easy choice: Starks, McCallister and Webb… and of course I am assuming Sanders was old as Moses when he got here!

  8. rockmattioli on said:

    are folks upset that cary Williams left?….the guy was solid and is playing well for philly….graham no where near as talented to an objective observer…

  9. RGH on said:

    If the goal is to fill out a roster I think Correy Harris should be on this list. He was an underrated kick returner who had a better average than Jermaine Lewis during the 4 years they played together. Harris acutaully was the primary kick returner 3 of the 4 years. He just lacked break away speed so he rarerly got a TD but he constantly put the Ravens in good field position.

  10. cheri on said:

    I went with McAlister, Starks,Baxter,Webb, Smith and I threw D. Sanders in there only because it was cool to have one of if not the greatest corner to ever play the game on our team even if it was for a brief time and he was pretty much wash up then.I still think it was neat for no other reason :)
