Ann Arbor Skyline 2016 DE Daelin Hayes was drafted #171 overall (#27 pick in the 5th round) of the 2021 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens.

The 6'4 253 lbs Hayes had 24 offers out of high school and was at one point committed to USC and even transferred to California before returning back to Michigan to finish his high school career.

Hayes recruiting process started early as Michigan State offered him on 1/21/2014.

ESPN said this about Hayes, "Hayes flashes good speed-to-power rushing the passer, and he's effective dropping into underneath coverage. He has a strong lower body and flashes the ability to set the edge against the run, but his pad level needs to be more consistent. Hayes has shorter arms, and he's slow to disengage at times." -- Steve Muench
