On Thursday, Tylan Wallace turned 23, and on Friday, he received some good news that made him even happier.
Before Wallace participated in Friday’s first practice of the rookie minicamp, the Baltimore Ravens and the fourth-round pick (131st overall) in this year’s draft agreed to the conditions of a deal.
The excellent Oklahoma State wide receiver is hoping to join Rashod Bateman as two rookie playmakers who make an immediate impact for Lamar Jackson.
Prior to the draft, Wallace was expected to be selected either in the second or third round. However, he tore his ACL in November of 2019 and this caused several teams to reconsider their interest in him.
Tracin, his twin and a former teammate at Oklahoma State, retired from football in 2019 after tearing his ACL for the third time.
Tylan is fulfilling his twin’s NFL ambition by making a name for himself as a healthy and valuable fourth-round draft pick in the NFL.
There was a safer option for Wallace in 2020: he could have opted out of his Oklahoma State commitment, kept working on his knee injury, and started getting ready for the draft.
Nonetheless, in 10 games, he caught 59 passes for 922 yards and six touchdowns, enough for an average of 15.6 yards per reception.
How Much Does Tylan Wallace Make?
Tylan Wallace makes an average of $1,041,341 per year. Wallace’s base salary in 2022 will be $825,000. His cap hit will be $996,341.
