NFL Future Watch: Rashod Bateman Football Cards, Baltimore Ravens – Rashod Bateman was drafted by Baltimore with the 27th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and he is already performing for the Ravens. This Tifton, Georgia native starred at Tift County High School. As a senior, this wide receiver caught 83 passes for 1,539 yards and 21 touchdowns. He received All-State honors.
After high school, Bateman chose to play for the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Bateman was a starter as a true freshman. His 51 catches for 704 yards and six touchdowns were record-setting for the program.
He followed that up with a sophomore campaign that saw him end the season as a semi-finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award. Sports Illustrated nominated him for second-team All-American and First-Team All-Big Ten. Bateman had 11 touchdowns and averaged 20.5 yards per catch!
In 2020, he decided to forgo the season, but when the Big-Ten returned to play, he changed his mind. Bateman had 36 receptions for 472 yards and two touchdowns in just five games played.
During his pro day, Bateman ran a 4.43 in the 40-yard dash. His 36.0 vertical and 33-inch arm length are desirable for teams looking for pass catchers. He may only be 6’ and 190 pounds, but this is a guy who knows how to do a fade pattern in the end zone and out jump his defender. Bateman has great hands and the kind of speed that can split the coverage downfield for big gains and a lot of yards after the catch.
In week 10 against the Miami Dolphins, he was on the field for 40 snaps according to PFF. He got a high grade from them with a six-reception day for 80 yards, matching his NFL best and a 30-yard gain, second to the 35 he got back in week 7. Bateman is coming on lately and the Ravens are happy to have another target. It all seems to be clicking for the rookie.
Bateman’s 2021 Donruss Rated Rookie Card shows him in his Ravens gear, mid-catch. It’s an exciting card.
The last card of Bateman’s to look at is the 2021 Panini Gold Standard Autographed Memorabilia card. It features three swatches, his unique signature, and another action photo. If you get in on Bateman now, the best is yet to come.
