After trading away wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown and the No. 100 overall pick to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for the No. 23 overall pick, the Ravens then traded again — sending the No. 23 pick to the Buffalo Bills to move back two spots while picking up an extra fourth-round pick.
With the No. 25 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Baltimore selected Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum.More positive reactions flooded Twitter for the Ravens’ first-round results.
Wow. The @Ravens landed my model's #2 overall prospect (S Kyle Hamilton) at 14 and #9 overall prospect (C Tyler Linderbaum) at 25.— cynthia frelund (@cfrelund) April 29, 2022
Kyle Hamilton and Tyler Linderbaum. Clearly the two best players at their respective positions. Potentially dominant players for a prolonged period of time.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) April 29, 2022
Ravens doing Ravens things.

Tyler Linderbaum doesn't fit the Ravens' typical size profile, but he absolutely fits their physicality. Baltimore got the best center prospect in a long time at No. 25.— Ryan Mink (@ryanmink) April 29, 2022
With the No. 25 overall pick, the Ravens select Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum.— Jamison Hensley (@jamisonhensley) April 29, 2022
It's the first time in the Ravens' 27-year draft history that they've selected a center in the first round.
Yes, I love Tyler Linderbaum to the Ravens. They can expand what they do in the run game!— Steve Palazzolo (@PFF_Steve) April 29, 2022
Tyler Linderbaum is fantastic. Didn’t think he’d go in the first round. Ravens got a dude.— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) April 29, 2022
The Ravens will love what Tyler Linderbaum brings in the screen game if they, you know, run more than TWO of them next year.— Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) April 29, 2022
Man, Ravens have had themselves a nice night. Don't be mad at me. It's just the truth. Kyle Hamilton at safety, now Tyler Linderbaum at center. Both fell.— Dejan Kovacevic (@Dejan_Kovacevic) April 29, 2022
The perfect fit: Iowa C Tyler Linderbaum goes #25 overall to the Baltimore Ravens, the same franchise that enjoyed long-term success with ex-Hawkeye Marshal Yanda.— Chad Leistikow (@ChadLeistikow) April 29, 2022
Linderbaum becomes the 11th first-round #NFLDraft pick of the Kirk Ferentz era.
The Ravens always draft so damn well.— Mike Nicastro (@MikedUpSports1) April 29, 2022
Kyle Hamilton AND Tyler Linderbaum?
Kyle Hamilton and Tyler Linderbaum is such a classic Ravens draft. Two really good players.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) April 29, 2022
Take a bow, #Ravens GM Eric DeCosta. Got the perfect center, Tyler Linderbaum, after taking a freak safety, Kyle Hamilton at 14. And all they needed to do was trade a gutless WR who sulked more than he worked, and pick up a 4th to move two spots down.— Neal Coolong (@NealCoolong) April 29, 2022
While other teams outsmarted themselves, the Ravens got Kyle Hamilton and Tyler Linderbaum.— Andy Staples (@Andy_Staples) April 29, 2022
The Ravens, as always are the winners of the draft. Kyle Hamilton AND Tyler Linderbaum, sheesh— Jordan Pun (@Texans_Thoughts) April 29, 2022
I knew it was an obvious longshot, but the #Bears not being able to get Tyler Linderbaum hurts.— Jacob Infante (@jacobinfante24) April 29, 2022
Kyle Hamilton and Linderbaum is an incredible haul for the Ravens. Two top-10 players on my big board.
