Former Georgia Tech wide receiver Darren Waller has been drafted by Baltimore Ravens with the 28th pick in the sixth round.

While at Tech, Waller was a solid receiver who had a huge breakout season this past year. After sitting out the first two games due to suspension, Waller finished the season with 26 catches for 442 yards and six touchdowns.

His best game of the season came when it absolutely needed to. Following DeAndre Smelter's torn ACL, Waller was given the opportunity to show that he can be a No. 1 guy. He showed that in the bowl game against Mississippi State. He finished that game with five catches with a season high 114 yards and a touchdown.

More information about Waller can be found in his scouting report, written by Kieffer Milligan, here.

Waller has a great chance of early play time with the Ravens. Steve Smith, Jr. and Marlon Brown are the only receivers on the roster with any meaningful experience whatsoever, and they don't have much after Dennis Pitta at tight end either.

Congrats Darren!
