Analysis: It is beginning to look like the Ravens scored a significant coup when they signed Cary Williams late in the 2009, after he was released by the Tennessee Titans. Williams looks to be developing into a player that can be a factor in the Ravens secondary. Williams is definitely the biggest corner the Ravens have. Williams’ size allows him to cover both slot receivers as well as receivers lined up on the outside of formations. Williams displays a knack for special teams play and is improving at being a physical man-to man corner.
2010 Outlook: The acquisition of CB Josh Wilson from Seattle will mean that Williams’ role will not be as significant for the Ravens in 2010, but the fragile nature of the secondaries health will likely mean he will see the field on a regular basis. Williams also has to serve a 2 game suspension for a domestic dispute, which sets him back, but he will get looks in the Ravens nickle and dime packages. Williams has shown a nose for the ball this pre-season and his coverage skills have improved greatly. Williams has the potential to be another “diamond in the rough” find for GM Ozzie Newsome, as he could be a part of the Ravens secondary for years to come.
