Tylan Wallace, WR

Two years ago, the Ravens drafted wide receiver Tylan Wallace out of Oklahoma State thinking he could become a solution to their problems at the position. As we know, Lamar Jackson has not had the necessary weapons to truly succeed in the passing game.

Wallace entered the league having racked up over 3,400 receiving yards and 26 touchdowns with the Cowboys. He looked like a guy who could, at the very least, wind up as a WR2 or WR3 for this team. But, in two seasons, Wallace has not yet caught on. He's totaled just six receptions for 56 yards and zero scores in two years.

Against the Eagles, though, Wallace caught a pair of passes including this impressive touchdown grab off a pass from Tyler Huntley.

The touchdown, in and of itself, may have firmly cemented Wallace as the sixth and final wide receiver on the team. Because James Proche didn't have a great day, Wallace's touchdown looked even better. It appears that Wallace and Proche are both in the running for that final spot, but Wallace should be in control, here.

Going into the rest of the preseason, Wallace controls his own fate. If he continues to play well, he'll wind up on this roster after all.
