Ravens Get Straight A’s in 2022 NFL Draft Grades

Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox: “Baltimore got more tremendous value in fourth-round pick Daniel Faalele. The former Missouri offensive tackle was on the 53rd-ranked player on the B / R board and could work his way into the starting lineup relatively quickly. Also on Day 3, the Ravens Rounding out their depth with potential draft pieces such as tight end Isaiah Likely and cornerback Jayln Armor-Davis, Punter Jordan Stout was scooped up to compete with and potentially replace Sam Koch. Made 11 picks and landed both high-end talent and possible steals throughout. “

The Sporting News’ Vinnie Iyer: “The Ravens had only [one] First-round pick to start but end up with three studs [Hamilton] And Linderbaum set to have an immediate impact and Ojabo set up play Odafe Oweh well. Jones and Faalele were ideal picks for both fronts. They also managed to add strong depth behind Mark Andrews and a replacement for fading Sam Koch. GM Eric DeCosta built up the volume well to address multiple positions and made a move into wide receiver Marquise Brown. They even got some fresh injury contingency for JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards. ” Grade: A +

New York Post’s Ryan Dunleavy: “Forget positional value. The Ravens drafted four with first-round traits on the first 76 picks. Hamilton and Linderbaum were two of the easiest high-end evaluations, and they slipped to No. 14 and No. 25, respectively. Second-rounder Ojabo will miss his rookie season (torn Achilles). ” Grade: A +

The Athletic’s Nick Baumgardner: “I feel like it’s the Ravens for me every year at this point. Baltimore’s willingness to sit there and wait … works almost every time. Hamilton’s fit with new defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald is insanely good. Hamilton will move all over the place defensively in time. With Baltimore, MacDonald is never afraid to experiment. Too much of a tweener when Macdonald arrives, he’ll get time to rehab his Achilles injury, and the fit will be better. Adding offensive tackle Daniel Faalele and tight end Isaiah Likely on Day 3 is the most Ravens thing ever. Also added nice value in this draft. “

The Athletic’s Diante Lee: “The Baltimore Ravens have the ultimate ‘best player available’ draft. In the secondary, they added safety Kyle Hamilton to play alongside Marcus Williams and cornerback Jalyn Armor-Davis with Marcus Peters and Marlon Humphrey. Ojabo to (eventually) pair up with Odafe Oweh. That’s a grand slam for 31 other franchises – and just another day at the office for Baltimore. “
