The Ravens don't like to do so, but they traded up in the seventh round from 225th overall to pick wide receiver James Proche out of SMU with the 201st pick.

Proche lined up in the slot and on the outside at SMU where he caught 111 passes in 2019 and had 1,125 yards receiving with 15 touchdowns. 

Baltimore traded its 225th pick and a 2021 5th round pick (which it received from the Steelers for Chris Wormley) for the 201st and 219th picks in the draft.

At 5-foot-11 and 201 pounds, Proche can line up all over the field and despite being undersized, displayed tremendous ball skills in going up and making contested catches at SMU. 

The pick was the second wide receiver the Ravens chose in the draft, the other being Devin Duvernay out of Texas in the third round.
