Tylan Wallace has realized his NFL dreams.
With the 131st pick in the NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens selected Tylan Wallace out of Oklahoma State University and Fort Worth, Texas! Wallace was the second wide receiver the Ravens drafted after Baltimore spent its first round pick on Rashod Bateman out of Minnesota.
Wallace racked up 3,434 yards and 26 touchdowns on 205 receptions in his time in orange and black. His best season came in 2018 as the Biletnikoff runner-up finished with 1,491 yards and 12 scores on 86 receptions. Wallace will be best remembered in Stillwater for his big time playmaking ability and vibrant personality.
Wallace fell farther in the draft than expected but found an excellent home in Baltimore. The Ravens have dynamic quarterback Lamar Jackson to get him the ball. The Ravens needed more talent and depth at wide receiver coming into the draft and have addressed that need well by drafting Bateman and Wallace.
Oklahoma State has now had three players selected in the 2021 NFL Draft. Offensive lineman Tevin Jenkins was selected in the 2nd round by the Chicago Bears and running back Chuba Hubbard was selected just a few spots ahead of Wallace in the 4th round by the Carolina Panthers.
The Ravens are getting a big time playmaker and an even better person in Wallace, who may end up being one of the steals in this years draft. Good luck in the NFL, Tylan!
