OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens waited until the seventh round to address the wide receiver position by drafting Elon’s Aaron Mellette with the 238th overall selection on Saturday.
At 6-foot-3 and 217 pounds, the FCS product has excellent size and good straight-line speed by running a 4.54-second 40-yard dash. Last season, Mellette started all 11 games and caught 97 passes for 1,398 yards and 18 touchdowns.
His 2011 season was even better as he caught 113 passes and averaged 14.5 yards per catch while catching 12 touchdowns. That production earned him first-team All-America honors as he led the FCS in both receptions per game (10.27) and receiving yards per game (149.0).
Mellette is an intriguing prospect that many thought would go in the middle part of the draft, making his selection great value in the final round. The Ravens hadn’t added a wide receiver since trading Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers for a sixth-round pick on the eve of free agency in March.
