Prolific wide receivers could be found flying off the board in every single round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Five wideouts went in the first round alone, though several talented prospects were taken after that and picked up as undrafted free agents.
The Baltimore Ravens have struggled to find consistent production for the wide receiver spot for the last few seasons, which made their first-round selection of Rashod Bateman no surprise.
Here's a look at the Ravens' updated WR depth chart for 2021.
Ravens WR Depth Chart 2021
1. Sammy Watkins
Sammy Watkins was the top free-agent signing of the offseason for the Ravens and brings experience to the position. He averages an impressive 14.5 yards per receptions in his career and has scored 33 touchdowns over seven NFL seasons. He immediately takes over the No. 1 WR role for quarterback Lamar Jackson.
2. Marquise Brown
As the Ravens' first-round pick back in 2019, Marquise Brown has been Jackson's favorite target over the last two seasons. He has racked up 1,353 receiving yards and scored 15 touchdowns so far in his young career. Brown will keep looking to improve in 2021 as one of the team's best downfield threats.
3. Rashod Bateman
The Ravens made a statement by selecting Minnesota's Rashod Bateman with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. They wanted a big-bodied pass-catcher and Bateman fits the bill. He spent three seasons with the Golden Gophers and posted 2,395 yards on 147 receptions in addition to 19 touchdowns. He has the potential to shine in this Ravens' offense.
4. Miles Boykin
5. Devin Duvernay
Devin Duvernay made a major impact on special teams last year as an explosive kick/punt returner for Baltimore. That should make him a lock to make the Week 1 roster, but he also has a shot to be a depth receiver for the team as well. He caught 20 passes for 201 yards last season.
6. Tylan Wallace
Former Oklahoma State Cowboys Tylan Wallce found himself falling the NFL Draft before the Ravens selected him in the fourth round. He could end up as a steal at that spot. Wallace averaged 16.8 yards per catch and scored 26 touchdowns over the course of four college seasons (37 games played). We'll see if he can bring that kind of production to the NFL level.
7. James Proche II
8. Jaylon Moore
9. Binjemin Victor
Binjemin Victor was signed to a futures contract earlier this offseason after four seasons spent at Ohio State. He totaled 1,340 yards on 83 receptions ad scored 18 touchdowns in four seasons (33 games played). He will be fighting for a roster spot in training camp alongside Moore and Proche.
