The Baltimore Ravens selected wide receiver Rashod Bateman with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. Then, with the No. 131 overall selection, the team surprised many, doubling down on pass catchers and taking WR Tylan Wallace out of Oklahoma State.

Wallace is an absolute steal at No. 131. He is a physical receiver who can get up and catch the football. He has great contested-catch ability, along with good hands, and should be able to compete for a few snaps early in his career.

The biggest question mark with the selection of Wallace is the status of the rest of Baltimore’s young receivers on their roster. At that position, the team now has seven realistic options to make the roster, so it seems likely that Miles Boykin or James Proche could be on his way out at some point.
