2. Tyler Huntley, QB, Baltimore Ravens
One of the more intriguing position battles to watch this spring and summer will be the competition for the backup quarterback job.
The Ravens chose not to add a veteran in the offseason opting instead to let their two returning youngsters, Trace McSorley and Tyler Huntley, battle it out.
Baltimore is confident that one of the two will step up and solidify themselves as the new backup. And through the first six days of OTAs so far, we do have an early favorite.
Huntley has gotten the better of McSorley to this point, although both quarterbacks have had their moments.
The highlight of Huntley’s OTAs thus far has been a beautiful deep ball down the sideline that was perfectly placed for rookie wide receiver Tylan Wallace who made the catch in stride.
The pass couldn’t have been thrown better and it was arguably the best throw from any Ravens quarterback during the first six days of OTAs.
McSorley has found some success as well, namely an excellent deep ball to Sammy Watkins earlier last week. Although he did overthrow Wallace on another deep pass on the same day.
Huntley has just been a little more consistent to this point, although the competition is still wide open.
This one bears watching over the next few months.
