OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens waited until the sixth round to address one of their more pressing needs, drafting tall wide receiver Tommy Streeter from the University of Miami.
The 198th overall pick, the 6-foot-5, 219-pound wideout left the Hurricanes after his junior season. In addition to his tall stature, Streeter has good speed — he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds — but has been criticized for his poor route-running ability.
In his three seasons at Miami, Streeter caught 52 passes for 967 yards and nine touchdowns. His 46 receptions and 811 yards in 2011 were both career highs and prompted him to enter the NFL Draft.
Streeter will enter training camp as a competitor for the No. 3 receiver spot along with second-year wideouts LaQuan Williams and Tandon Doss. While extremely raw, his size and speed alone makes him an excellent value in the sixth round.
“Size isn’t as important to me as his catching radius and his play-making ability,” said offensive coordinator Cam Cameron prior to Streeter being selected in the sixth round on Saturday. “Throwing to the big is tough to stop. We see a lot of big receivers in this division. I like the guys we have and I think our guys play big, but we’ll always be looking to add bigger, faster guys if they’re out there.”
Had he returned for his senior season, Streeter would have likely been a top receiver to watch for the 2018 draft. Instead, he goes a year earlier to the Ravens.
