No. 4: Tyler Linderbaum (2022)

While most centers don't come into the NFL with oodles of hype, Linderbaum's exceptional career at Iowa was so dominant that anyone who took him expected him to start right away and instantly start vying for Pro Bowls. In just his second year in the league, Linderbaum already lived up to that Pro Bowl hype.

On an ever-changing Ravens offensive line that figures to have multiple new additions by the time the 2024 NFL Draft is over, Linderbaum is the only player the team doesn't have to worry about just yet. The standout starter will play a key role in getting Derrick Henry over 1,000 yards again and keeping Jackson upright.

Tyler Linderbaum has been a solid pick for the Baltimore Ravens

No. 3: Kyle Hamilton (2022)

Hamilton started his rookie year slow, which was a bit disappointing for a player regarded as one of the best safety prospects in the last decade. Once he figured out what he needed to do in order to stick in the pros, Hamilton was an All-Pro performer at the heart of an elite unit.

Hamilton is not only one of the best safeties in the league and one of the game's most versatile pieces as a 6-4, 220-pound defensive back, but he is such a promising safety that he could reset the market at the position when contract time comes around. Not bad for a No. 14 pick.
