The Ravens added some much-needed depth to their secondary by sending a fifth-round pick to Seattle for cornerback Josh Wilson. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the pick could become a fourth-rounder depending on Wilson’s playing time.J. Wilson

Wilson was Seattle’s second-round pick in 2007. He started 12 games in both the ’08 and ’09 seasons. In ’09, coaches wanted him to play the slot, but Ken Lucas struggled too mightily to maintain the No. 2 cornerback job. Ironically, the Ravens had Lucas in for a tryout this past summer but decided to pass. That decision to pass, in part, indirectly led to the decision to trade for Wilson.

Wilson is a decent athlete, but he has a strong tendency to give up spacing late in routes. If Lardarius Webb is healthy, the Ravens will likely use Wilson in a No. 4 role. (Of course, given Wilson’s experience in covering the slot, his addition could be an indication that Webb is not as healthy as the Ravens would like). It’s also not entirely out of the question that Wilson could challenge Chris Carr for the No. 2 cornerback job; Carr is better suited as an inside zone defender.
