Analysis: Hawkins was signed by the Ravens just a few weeks ago after being cut loose by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was not drafted coming out of LSU. He adds another body to look at in the secondary, as the cornerback position has been universally hailed as the team’s weak spot. He has made five tackles, defensed one pass and downed one punt on special teams in two preseason games.
2010 Outlook: Hawkins is probably a long shot to make the squad, but he has good size and decent skills to play the position. He may be a contributor on special teams should he make the team, rather than getting time on the field at cornerback. With Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb coming back from injuries, Hawkins may be kept around if he can beat other some of the other candidates trying to fill the void at corner.
