Defenses are fully aware of the playmaking ability of Lamar Jackson, J.K. Dobbins, and newly added wide receiver Sammy Watkins, but the Baltimore Ravens‘ fourth-round pick, Tylan Wallace, could prove to be a huge weapon for the offense this upcoming season.

Although the Ravens finished with an 11-5 record last season, the offense struggled to find stability in a passing game that ranked last in the entire NFL.

During the 2021 NFL Draft, the Ravens made the offense a huge focus as they selected wide receiver Rashod Bateman with the 27th pick overall in the draft.

However, could the addition of Oklahoma State’s Tylan Wallace propel the Ravens’ offense to one of the league’s best?

During his four years at Oklahoma State, Wallace displayed elite ability with 205 receptions, 3434 yards, and 27 touchdowns.

Wallace finished his senior year with 922 receiving yards averaging over 15 yards per reception. He electrified the Cowboys’ offense with explosive speed and ability to stretch the field.

In a recent press conference, Wallace spoke on what separated him from the rest of the wide receivers in his draft class.

"“I think I bring a few aspects. I think a big thing for me is my ball skills — whether it’s locating the football, high pointing it, running through it — and also, my physicality. I think that’s one thing that separates me in this Draft class, for sure. But yes, I think those are a few things that separate me.”"

In 2020, the Ravens’ offense ranked among the bottom half of the league in passing plays over 25 yards. Over his collegiate career, the Oklahoma State coaching staff consistently found ways to utilize Wallace’s unique playmaking ability to create huge plays for the offense.

With the addition of the versatile Tylan Wallace, expect the Ravens’ to increase the downfield plays in the offense to keep defenses on edge.

The Ravens’ offense led by All-Pro quarterback Lamar Jackson ranked No. 1 in the NFL in rushing yards. Still, for the Ravens to sustain success in a competitive AFC, Jackson must utilize the new weapons in their wide receiver group.
