Ravens Draft Kyle Hamilton At No. 14 Overall

Notre Dame’s Kyle Hamilton has seen his first round slide end at No. 14 overall in the 2022 NFL Draft. The Ravens get the top-ranked safety on the board who was viewed at points of the pre-draft process at a top-5 draft pick. 

Hamilton had a highly productive three-year career with the Fighting Irish. He totaled 138 tackles and eight interceptions, demonstrating positional flexibility and leadership qualities along the way. His testing numbers, season-ending knee injury and overall athletic profile, however, have led to a belief he could drop to at least the second half of the first round.

Luckily for Hamilton, his fall has ended and he landed himself in a franchise that prides itself on defense. The Ravens lost safety DeShon Elliott, but replaced him with former-Saints safety Marcus Williams.

Whether the Ravens will utilize Hamilton to help replace Elliott’s production or to boost a lackluster linebacker group is to be seen. Hamilton’s versatility will give them plenty of options in the upcoming season.
