NFL Draft 2015: Baltimore Ravens Select Nick Boyle No. 171 Overall

Boyle is the second tight end the Ravens have selected in this draft, joining second-round pick Maxx Williams. Boyle was a three-year starter and the all-time leader among Delaware tight ends in receptions (101) and second at the position with 12 touchdowns. He has all the tools to be one of those late round draft choices that could become a star at the tight end position.

Quarterback Joe Flacco might have had some input on this pick as Boyle comes from the University of Delaware, the same college that Flacco attended. This could also be an indicator that the Ozzie Newsome and John Harbaugh do not expect Dennis Pitta to make a second comeback from major hip surgery.

The Ravens have another fifth-round compensatory selection just a few picks away at No. 176. Their final draft choice will come at No. 204
