Top 7 Baltimore Ravens who could steal the show this preseason
3. Trace McSorely
No Robert Griffin III, no problems for Trace McSorely. This will give McSorely more of an opportunity to be a quarterback this preseason. Lamar Jackson may or may not play in the first preseason game. Joe Callahan will get some time to run the offense but the bulk of the work could very well be McSorely’s. Sheer opportunity puts McSorely in the spotlight.
McSorely figures to be the new gadget quarterback for the Ravens to experiment with. If McSorely can exceed expectations as a passer, it could make that future element of their offense more viable. Jackson is the starting quarterback but having two viable passers on the field (that can run wild) would give defenses a lot to worry about. McSorely needs to show in the preseason that this line of thinking can pay off when the games count.
This is McSorely’s chance to show that he can be a viable backup to Jackson. If McSorely has any ambitions to be a quarterback in the NFL and not just another Taysom Hill, he has to step up to this challenge. Like every player on this list, McSorely is in line for a lot of playing time this preseason.
