1. Kyle Hamilton is on pace to make the Pro Bowl in 2023.
This is another one where we see a former first round pick start to get the media recognition. When Kyle Hamilton was a rookie, it was unclear what he would be doing exactly. The Ravens just signed Marcus Williams before the draft, and they had Chuck Clark calling plays.
First, Hamilton played just dime snaps, and then he became the slot cornerback for the stretch run into the playoffs. Now, Chuck Clark is gone, so a much bigger role is in store. Roquan Smith will be calling the plays, but it is probably better for Hamilton to ascend into the NFL.
Hamilton will be more of a box safety, but what they discovered with him in the slot is valuable as well. If he can be a hybrid of both, the general fan base will start to put him in the ranks of players such as Derwin James. Hamilton may even be getting more praise because he can do the things that James does, and he may stay healthy.
Of course, we will need to see it. Still, everything is in store for Kyle Hamilton to take off this year and put up stats while playing a lot more snaps. This can easily lead to a Pro Bowl recognition.
