Ravens Flock was practically begging for this pick to become a reality and when Rashod Bateman was on the board with the 27th pick it felt surreal. I remember standing there in disbelief that this could be happening, and then it did. Now, Bateman joins an absolutely loaded Baltimore Ravens offense.
Yeaaaaah… Ravens Flock should be extremely excited.
But Baltimore hasn’t been trying to help Lamar Jackson, right?
Eric DeCosta has CLEARLY been trying to make a historically weak position for the franchise a strength and he invested his second day one selection in three years into Bateman. Bateman now joins Marquise Brown to give the Ravens an explosive duo out wide.
A toddler could’ve made this pick, but it doesn’t make it any less special to us. EDC is hell-bent on making wide receiver one of the team’s strengths and the selection of Bateman solidifies that.
Trust us, Ramey, we’re pretty stoked about the pick, too. The upside of this duo is through the roof.
Good luck, everyone else!
