WATCH: Best Kyu Blu Kelly highlights from Stanford
The Baltimore Ravens’ defensive investment continued in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL draft when the team drafted Stanford cornerback Kyu Blu Kelly with the 157th pick.
This selection netted the team a gritty defender who plays with a physicality that will fit in well with other defenders already on the Ravens’ roster. Though he was one of the lesser-known corners in this class, Kelly’s talent pops off the screen in film sessions and points to a potential steal by Baltimore in the fifth round.
Check out his highlight reel below to get familiar with his skillset ahead of the 2023 season:

Ravens get one of the better players on the board in Kyu Blu Kelly. Plays with great feet and balance. Very good in off coverage. Like him best playing zone but looked good at Senior Bowl in man: pic.twitter.com/jZ92n1M3nS
