Wide Receivers - Tylan Wallace & Laquon Treadwell

The Ravens have penciled in five wide receivers as their go-to players at the position. Nobody would ever question that Fantastic Five: Odell Beckham, Zay Flowers, Rashod Bateman (starters), Nelson Agholor and Devin Duvernay (rotation).

The sixth spot, though, is very much still up for grabs with two main contenders still in the race to snatch that role: Tylan Wallace and Laquon Treadwell.

The latter was a first-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in 2016 and if he makes it to the final 53-man roster he will do so helping Baltimore make history: the wide receiver room would feature six first-round picks!

The former has yet to crack the 10-target barrier for the Ravens after becoming the franchise's third-round selection in the 2021 draft. However, Wallace has been a prominent performance on special teams plays appearing in 278 (59%) and 121 (51%) snaps in the past two seasons.

While Treadwell had a stock-up boost earlier in the offseason with a good set of training camp practices, it feels like Wallace is now leading the race above the former first-round pick. Wallace's all-around skill set and his presence in ST units could give him the edge over Treadwell.

Last weekend, against the Eagles, Wallace started the game and got seven snaps, running four routes and scoring a touchdown, per Pro Football Focus game charting. He was the Ravens' slot receiver, although that position will be occupied by Zay Flowers in the regular season.

With James Proche virtually out of the race already and Wallace the most-productive player in actual play, odds are he ends up with the final roster slot unless Treadwell puts on an absolute show against the Commies on Monday.
