Former Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens with the No. 14 pick Thursday night in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
Hamilton was a ball-hawking nightmare for opposing offenses during his three-year career at Notre Dame. Unfortunately, his third and final season was cut short due to a season-ending injury. Despite only playing six complete games in 2021, he was still named a consensus All-American.
Hamilton also earned First Team All-ACC in 2020 during Notre Dame’s lone season, participating in the football Athletic Coast Conference.
He finished his career with the Fighting Irish posting a stat line of 138 total tackles, 8 interceptions, 16 passes defensed and 1 touchdown.
Hamilton will provide an immediate boost to the Raven secondary. He possesses excellent size, length and athleticism that makes him near impossible to attack in the passing game. Versatility is one of Hamilton’s most significant assets; his size and skill set make him a threat around the line of scrimmage and in coverage.
Kyle’s father, Derrick Hamilton, played professional basketball in Europe. As a result, Kyle was born in Greece and spent some of his early childhood living overseas.
The 6-foot-4, 220-pound safety played his high school ball in Atlanta, Georgia, and was a 5-star prospect in the 2019 class.
