With the NFL Draft approaching fairly soon, Baltimore Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta has revealed which positions the team may address later this month.
DeCosta admit that he’s a bit concerned about the Ravens’ lack of depth at cornerback. That could result in Baltimore using an early pick on a defensive back.
“I think we’re definitely concerned,” DeCosta said. “If you guys know us, we always want to have a strong secondary and as many corners as possible. We’ve referred to those guys as race cars in the past, and this year, we got decimated at that position across the board. We have outstanding players coming back, but again, until they come back it’s a question mark.”

This doesn’t mean the Ravens aren’t confident in Marlon Humphrey coming off a torn pectoral muscle. In fact, DeCosta is very confident in the Alabama product’s outlook for the 2022 season.
At the end of the day, Baltimore wants to add more depth to that position because you can never have enough cornerbacks in the NFL.
“We feel like Marlon is going to come back with a vengeance. We feel like Marcus is going to come back with a vengeance,” DeCosta added. “But we feel like behind those two guys, the depth is thin. There are opportunities for us in the first round, second round, third round. Coach [John Harbaugh] has been watching the corners. We feel like we have the opportunity to take one or two corners in the draft that can come in and contribute right away, we’re excited about that.”
The Ravens currently own the 14th overall pick in the draft. They could potentially target Trent McDuffie from Washington or Derek Stingley Jr. out of LSU.
