Baltimore boasts depth with its defensive backs, but we probably won't know which four will be in the starting lineup until Week 1 rolls around. At cornerback, Jimmy Smith, Domonique Foxworth, Lardarius Webb and Chris Carr are all battling for prime playing time, and each has his pros and cons. At the strong safety spot, the Ravens signed the hard-hitting Bernard Pollard to compete with fourth-year players Haruki Nakamura and Tom Zbikowski. My educated guess: Jimmy Smith and Chris Carr will start at corner, but we should see a revolving door at the position. Ditto for the safeties, but Pollard will get the first crack.
