The Baltimore Ravens have lacked a true No. 1 wide receiver for quite a while. Fans have been pretty vocal about their desire to address the position this offseason, but most of the big-name stars are off the market by now.

That means Baltimore's likely going to be forced to address the position in the 2021 NFL Draft, if it does at all. Thankfully, ProFootballFocus projects the Ravens will do just that in their latest mock.

Rashod Bateman Ravens

PFF has the Ravens picking Minnesota's Rashod Bateman at No. 27 overall. This would be a real steal for the team, as plenty of mocks have the wideout going much higher.

Even in a loaded wide receiver class, Bateman manages to standout. He's an exceptionally polished route runner who generates separation with ease. As a 6-foot-2 WR, he's also the big-bodied weapon this team needs to complement Marquise Brown on the outside.

While some have questioned his speed, Bateman silenced those concerns by running a 4.39 40-yard dash.

He's one of the most complete receivers in the class, and he could really help take Lamar Jackson's game to the next level.

If he's still on the board at No. 27, Baltimore should rush to the podium.
