Cornering the market

The Ravens need to add an additional cornerback or two. This much we know.

It doesn’t look like Nathan Vasher will be one of the guys coming to Charm City this season, however.

Vasher, who was released by the Bears earlier in the month, is close to catching on with the Chargers, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The former first-round pick would be a nice addition for San Diego after they previously traded cornerback Antonio Cromartie to the Jets.

While Vasher is off the market as far as the Ravens are concerned, they’re keeping their eyes on all the available options at cornerback, including Boise State’s Kyle Wilson.

The Ravens sent secondary coach Chuck Pagano to Wilson’s recent Pro Day, according to The Carroll County Times’ Aaron Wilson.

Wilson (the corner, not the reporter) ran between a 4.39 and 4.43 40-yard dash at the workout, which impressed the scouts and coaches in attendance. The 22-year-old is projected as a mid to late first-round pick in next month’s draft, and some mock drafts have him going to the Ravens with the 25th pick.

There’s been a lot of buzz around Wilson lately, however, and if the Ravens were hoping that he’d still be available when they’re on the clock, the positive Pro Day might have hurt that cause.

If the Ravens wanted to go with a cornerback early in the draft, other options might be Rutgers’ Devin McCourty (who was visited by Pagano at his Pro Day as well), Alabama’s Kareem Jackson and Florida State’s Patrick Robinson.
