With the No. 27 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select WR Rashod Bateman!

This has been the most anticipated pick of the Eric DeCosta era and undoubtedly, Ravens fans are singing from the rooftops with this selection. This is exactly what everybody has clamored for. A wide receiver for Lamar Jackson to throw to. Now, the Ravens boast three first-round picks as their wide receivers with Hollywood Brown, Sammy Watkins, and now Bateman.

Bateman is an excellent outside target who is strong and capable of making the exact catches the Ravens need. Bateman highly complements both Hollywood and Watkins with his skillset and will likely become yet another favorite target for Jackson to throw toward. Now, the Ravens offense boasts three NFL-caliber wide receives, a top four tight end and a dynamic duo at running back. Watch out, NFL. The Ravens are bolstering their offense even further.
