2015 NFL Draft: Ravens Select Nick Boyle

With the 171st overall pick the Ravens select Nick Boyle

With the 171st overall pick the Ravens select Tight End Nick Boyle out of the University of Delaware.

The Tight End is 6'4" and 200 pounds. He ran a five second 40 at Delaware's Pro Day.

The big bodied tight end has the athleticism to be an every down player and has very good hands, so he should be a good weapon in the passing game. Boyle knows how to look for the catch and he can deliver a blow to nearby defensive backs. He knows how to work the seam and get downfield and he has shown the ability to help out a scrambling quarterback.

He is weak as a blocker however, but with Crockett Gillmore on the roster that shouldn't be a problem. He looked better in 2013 and he is a little slow out of his breaks.

This is the second tight end the Ravens have selected in this draft, which could be a sign on how they view Dennis Pitta in 2015.
