The Ravens most impressive rookie so far this summer is...

Some team officials believe that the best rookie in Ravens training camp has been Lardarius Webb and that’s saying a bunch given the play so far of the team’s top 2 picks, Michael Oher and Paul Kruger. If Fabian Washington goes down for a game or two (and that’s pretty much an even money bet given his propensity for injury), don’t be surprised if Washington loses his job to Webb. Washington is playing for his next contract and given Webb’s promising future and the hardly dry ink on Domonique Foxworth’s contract, this is probably Washington’s final season in Baltimore barring some unforeseen circumstance.

I am glad Webb is doing well but I think your way off on Washington. The Ravens learned the hard way, what happens if you dont have good depth at corner, Ozzie isnt going to repeat that mistake again. Heck thats why he went out and traded for Washington in the first place. Imagine if we didnt have him last year... Our starters would have been Frank Walker in Corey Ivy for 6 games- thats a scary thought imo. In the NFL, you need 3 or 4 corners that can be starters. Samari Rolle isnt getting any younger or healtheir. Derrick Martin, Evan Olgesby, Frank Walker, and Chris Carr are not guys I want to depend on if we have a freak year like 07 and we lose our top 2 corners. Ozzie finds a way to keep Washington and we part with Pryce, Heap or McGahee.
