Rookie CB Walker making good early impression

Tray Walker, the only cornerback the Ravens drafted this year, could find a situational role as a rookie if he continues to develop. A fourth-round pick from Texas Southern, Walker has already impressed coach John Harbaugh during the early stages of OTA’s.

“Tray has done well,” said Ravens coach John Harbaugh. “(We’re) really excited about Tray. He’s a guy that we had targeted. We really hoped to get him in the draft. He’s a guy that we wanted to get in the mid rounds. We were looking to try and draft him, and we were able to do it. We know for a fact that he would have been gone with our next pick in the fifth round. He was going to be taken early in the fifth round, so we got him right in the right spot – great kudos to (assistant general manager) Eric (DeCosta) and (general manager) Ozzie (Newsome) for getting that done – and we’re pleased to have him. He looks very good out here.”

At 6-foot-2, Walker has the size, wingspan, and range that many teams look for in cornerbacks. The leap from Texas Southern to the NFL is a big one. However, the Ravens already have one small school cornerback starting for them in Lardarius Webb, a product of Nicholls St.

The Ravens are determined they will not lack quality depth at cornerback if they are hit by injuries again. So in addition to drafting Walker, the Ravens also signed veterans Kyle Arrington and Cassius Vaughn.

Arrington has the inside track to be the nickel cornerback alongside starters Jimmy Smith and Webb. However, injuries could quickly thrust other players into action, similar to last season. In a crowded cornerback competition, Walker is already getting noticed.
