With the No. 157 pick in the 2023 NFL draft, the Baltimore Ravens select Stanford cornerback Kyu Blu Kelly.

Kyu Blu Kelly Draft Profile

Defender with good size, length and NFL bloodlines, but a concerning lack of recovery speed and coverage stickiness against quality route runners. When in position, Kelly possesses the ball skills and competitiveness to contest catches. He’s patient and efficient from press, but he could struggle to stay in phase with vertical route threats in man-to-man coverage. Kelly might be best suited for a backup role in a zone scheme, but the aggression will need to be cranked up in run support.” —’s Lance Zierlein
