With the No. 14 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft — their highest pick since selecting All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley in 2016 — the Baltimore Ravens selected Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton.
Twitter exploded with reactions to Baltimore’s surprise selection.

I thought if Notre Dame S Kyle Hamilton was available, he would be a big test to the Ravens' best-player available approach. Safety is one of the Ravens' deepest positions. But the Ravens stick to their board and go with the All-American safety at No. 14 overall.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) April 29, 2022
