One of the Ravens' pleasant early-season surprises has been CB Cary Williams, who has worked his way from being one of the last options at the position to becoming a starter. Williams, head coach John Harbaugh told reporters before the season opener, "got better as a football player. (He) got more physically strong and all that, but just became a better corner, a better player, through his own efforts, and then applied that. He's gotten better every day." Williams' progress is a positive sign for a secondary that had its problems against the pass last season and has had some key cornerbacks, most notably Domonique Foxworth, dealing with injury at various points during the summer. Another story line to watch at cornerback: the development of rookie Jimmy Smith, whose sheer raw ability could be tough for the Ravens not to utilize even if he endures some on-the-job growing pains, the way we hear it.
