Allowing the board fall to them, the Baltimore Ravens managed to land perhaps the best player in the entire 2022 NFL draft at No. 14 overall, Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton.
The Ravens are loading up on the back end of their defense, after signing Marcus Williams to a big-money deal in free agency, helping to bolster a pass defense that struggled last year.
Hamilton is a long, rangy safety who can play multiple positions on the defense. He’s got excellent instincts, ball skills, and football intelligence that combined to make him one of the best defensive players in college football last year. He can play in multiple spots, excelling in zone, man, or run defense, allowing for a ton of versatility for defensive coordinators.
He will certainly start right away for Baltimore, wherever they need him to play. He will be an “X-factor” player for their historic defense, and can provide them with excellent stability in the secondary. The Ravens nailed this pick, and were correct to allow their patience pay off.
