2. Is it time to move Kyle Hamilton back into the slot when Marcus Williams returns?
When Marcus Williams returned to the lineup, the Ravens decided to bench Geno Stone and start Arthur Maulet in the slot. It makes sense because they want to keep Kyle Hamilton at strong safety, but it may be time to change that thinking. A couple of runs got outside on Arthur Maulet, and Geno Stone recorded another interception. He is having a career year, and the team would be insane to take away his playing time.
So, when Marcus Williams returns, do the Ravens push Hamilton back into the slot and keep Geno Stone in the lineup? It could set up for the best the Ravens' defense has been. They finally have two cornerbacks who play 100% of the snaps. Justin Madubuike and Michael Pierce are the best interior duo with perfect skills that contrast each other. Roquan Smith is the best in the league and makes Patrick Queen better. Jadeveon Clowney looks as young as ever, and then at safety, they have Marcus Williams and Geno Stone, with Kyle Hamilton roaming as a slot. Hamilton is at his best, closest to the line. Those runs that got outside will not get outside on Hamilton. Hamilton plus Stone would be an elite group of ball hunters. It has to happen.
