3. Kyle Hamilton has taken his game to the next level for the Baltimore Ravens

How many safeties would you take in the entire NFL over Kyle Hamilton right now? The way that he is playing, he makes the list smaller every week. Hamilton was expected to take a step this year, but he may have taken a leap towards All-Pro consideration.

It is a shame the Baltimore Ravens lost to the Colts because his game was worth the win alone. What was special was seeing him line up in the slot after spending the first two weeks as a strong safety. He has been asked to play both roles this year, and last week he was changing his role within the series.

As we noted, the Baltimore Ravens have the trust in both Geno Stone and Arthur Maulet right now. That means that Hamilton can play the slot with Stone at safety or Hamilton can play safety with Maulet in the slot. Having the ability to do both will increase the value of Hamilton. This is a nice addition to the defense.
