With the 27th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Ravens selected Rashod Bateman, Wide Receiver from the University of Minnesota.

RSR staff react to the pick here.

Chad Racine

Rashod Bateman fell to the Ravens and the fan base should be happy.  There were so many good players on the board at the time and I wasn’t sure who it would be. Lamar gets another target that can work the middle of the field or on the outside.

With Marshall having questionable medicals, Bateman was the only WR left that made sense for the Ravens. Great route runner who graded out very highly according to PFF.

Legions of Ravens fans will be happy, and for good reason. Bateman is the prototypical ‘X’ receiver that the Ravens badly needed, and he’ll be an immediate contributor on the outside. He has a smooth release and is shifty before and after the catch. With so many good players on the board, they took the one most likely to be gone by 31, and I can’t fault that strategy. He’ll be a great target for Lamar Jackson working the sideline and across the middle. 

Derek Arnold

Most were pleasantly surprised that Bateman remained on the board for so long. The speedster (4.3) caught a ball in all 31 games he played in as a Gopher and racked up 19 touchdowns and 10 100+ yard games. He can get off the line against press coverage, can stretch the field, and can burn after the catch.

Lamar Jackson is smiling ear-to-ear somewhere.
