Ravens 2021 Draft: Ravens select WR Tylan Wallace

So much for not rebuilding the wide receiver room

With the No. 131 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select WR Tylan Wallace.

The first double-dip move by the Ravens and it’s none other than for the wide receiver room.

Tylan Wallace is another wide receiver who plays bigger than his size. He plays a lot of outside receiver and most certainly has the consistency the Ravens hope for. He dominated in 2018 with 86 receptions for 1,491 yards and 12 touchdowns. The next two seasons he paired together 900-yard seasons and had eight and six touchdowns, respectively.

This is a brilliant landing spot for Wallace and the Ravens. This also continues to show the Ravens’ effort in supplying QB Lamar Jackson with weapons. Now, they’ve added two in the draft and Sammy Watkins in free agency.

NFL.com Draft Profile

“Wallace is slightly undersized as an outside receiver, but has the swagger, toughness and ball skills to get the job done. He’s a crisp route runner with the ability to handle more complicated patterns with good fluidity in his transitions to separate. His initial upfield charge is just average and big press corners have some success detouring his scheduled departure. He will be at his best on the second and third levels. His leaping, focus and timing make him a likely candidate to continue winning downfield jump balls as a pro. Wallace’s competitive nature has helped create a history of making big plays on big stages and he has the skill level and mental makeup to become a good starter as a plus WR2.” — Lance Zeirlein
