Grading each of the Ravens’ selections on Day 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft

The Baltimore Ravens finished their 2022 draft with 11 draft picks, including seven on the third day of the festivities. Baltimore had six fourth-round selections entering Day 3, and used all of them, selecting players at positions needed as well as some of the best players available at the time that they were selected.

Many were happy with how the Ravens turned out for Day 3, but there were some controversial picks that not everyone agreed with. The team also decided not to draft players at certain positions, which they’ll now have to look at during free agency or through a trade.

Below we grade each of Baltimore’s Day 3 selections from the 2022 draft.

Faalele is a hulking human being, standing about 6-foot-8 and weighing about 380 pounds. He is a former rugby star that is still relatively new to football, so his potential is sky-high. He was a popular pick for the Ravens at No. 45 in mock drafts, so getting him at No. 110 is immense value.

Baltimore loves his players from the University of Alabama, and Armor-Davis is the latest cornerback to be selected from the Crimson Tide. He is a long player with good speed, but he has some injury concerns as well. He only got significant snaps during his final season at Alabama, so he has the potential to continue to grow into a solid NFL player.

Kolar represented one of the best tight ends still available on the board when selecting at No. 128, and the Ravens decided to add a former Iowa State star to their tight end room that also features Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle. He’s a great pass catcher with strong hands, and while he’s not quite as good a blocker as he is a receiver, he can fill a role for the Baltimore offense during his rookie year.

Stout was the first punter to be taken in the 2022 NFL Draft, and for a team that values ​​special teams so highly, the Ravens must have been very high on him. Taking a punter with a mid-round pick will always be an unpopular one for some people, but there is no denying Stout’s talent level as he appears to be Sam Koch in Baltimore.

Likely was a double-dip at the tight end position after Baltimore selected Kolar, but the former Costal Carolina star has all the potential in the world. He can play in multiple offsets on one offense, and has traits like a wide receiver when catching the football. He’s a smooth route runner with great hands as well as a huge catch radius, and because of that he should be someone that quarterback Lamar Jackson likes throwing to the football.

Williams is the second cornerback taken in the fourth round by the Ravens after Armor-Davis. The former Houston star projects as a slot cornerback at the next level, but can also play a bit of safety when needed.
