It’s official. Rashod Bateman is going to the NFL after being drafted by the Baltimore Ravens #27 overall. That means the Minnesota Gophers have their first 1st-round draft pick since Laurence Maroney back in 2006. Bateman owns the 6th most receiving yards as a Gopher and 5th in touchdowns but he only played for 2.5 seasons.
He’ll now join a very good Baltimore Ravens team with Lamar Jackson as his quarterback.
