The Baltimore Ravens were thought to be in the market for a third running back in the 2022 NFL draft after the season-ending injuries suffered by J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill in 2021. They ended up investing at the position with their last pick of the draft, selecting running back Tyler Badie out of Missouri with the 196th overall selection.

Badie is a local prospect who was dominant in the SEC with the Tigers, totaling 513 attempts for 2,740 yards and 23 touchdowns rushing while also catching 126 passes for 1,149 yards and 11 touchdowns. He’s a dual threat player who can win with his burst and contact balance, plus his electricity in space.

Considering how run-heavy the Baltimore offense has been over the past few seasons, Badie has the potential to earn a decent number of snaps during his rookie year depending on how the recoveries of Dobbins, Edwards and Hill progress. He’ll likely be competing with Hill, Ty’Son Williams and Nate McCrary for carries, and has a lot of potential overall.
