Final Grade

Kyle Hamilton is extremely athletic and does an excellent job in both zone and man to man coverage. Hamilton does a great job recovering once he makes a mistake in coverage and has strong hip fluidity. Hamilton has strong ball skills and great hand-eye coordination when tracking the football. He also has great hands, can get to the high point, and is a decent blitzer. Hamilton does a great job engaging with blocks and has the ability to fill in gaps limiting the running back's options. He can be a solid tackler. Hamilton has a good stance as well when engaging with blocks and takes great pursuit angles. Hamilton plays with a lot of aggression and confidence every time he steps on the football field.Hamilton can be very consistent on the field and plays with a motor as he is very competitive. Hamilton is very versatile in multiple positions in strong or free safety, linebacker, and cornerback. He can easily recognize plays and is a strong communicator on defense.

Weaknessess

He must be more consistent with his play strength as he doesn't fully utilize it when making tackles. He has a bit of a tough time covering shiftier and quicker receivers especially in man to man coverage. Hamilton must focus on quickly closing as a pass rusher when he blitzes. Hamilton has a habit of missing easy tackles and not being a consistent hard hitter. Hamilton can be a bit too aggressive on plays resulting in missed tackles and when defending against screens. Durability is a concern due to dealing with a knee, foot and ankle injury through his college career.

"Kyle Hamilton is extremely athletic and has the lateral agility, speed, smooth footwork, and balance that you want to see in a safety. He has solid play strength as well. but must be consistent as sometimes he doesn't fully utilizes his play strength when making tackles. He has smooth footwork especially when he backpedals in coverage and is very fast with his feet. Hamilton has solid posture and is especially shown in his stance.

Hamilton is very vesitaile in muliple positions. I have seen as he can either play strong or free safety. Heck, Hamilton at some points in Notre Dame lined up as a linebacker and cornerback. He can easily recognize plays and is a strong communicator on defense.
