Darren Waller:

The Ravens last draft selection has recently been gaining traction in the very tight and competitive Ravens wide receiver battle. He has been very impressive in camp as of late and has shown a huge improvement from the beginning of rookie camp to now.

Waller wears Jacoby Jones’ old number and you could honestly mistake the two if it Waller wasn’t much taller than Jacoby.

Waller brings an exciting dynamic to the Ravens’ offense, especially in the red zone. His height brings an obvious advantage in the red zone, and if he continues to improve I believe Marc Trestman will bring him on special red zone packages.

Since Georgia Tech runs the triple option, he didn’t get that many targets over his college career, but it is clear the body and the raw talent are there.
