5. Tyler Huntley, QB, Baltimore Ravens

One of the more intriguing position battles this summer will be the competition for the backup quarterback job.

Following the departure of Robert Griffin III in the offseason, the Ravens opted to stick with their internal options and not sign a veteran. That left the likes of Trace McSorley and Tyler Huntley competing for the No. 2 QB role.

And while it’s still very early, Huntley probably has the slight edge following OTAs.

Both quarterbacks had their moments and each of them played well, but when all was said and done, Huntley was the more consistent of the two.

Perhaps the highlight of his spring was a deep ball down the sideline to rookie wide receiver Tylan Wallace who caught the pass in stride between fellow rookies Brandon Stephens and Ar’Darius Washington.

This came during a practice last week and Huntley could not have thrown a better ball.

He later connected with wideout Jaylon Moore for a long touchdown that same practice and continued his strong spring in the final practice of OTAs open to the media on Tuesday.

Huntley found newly-signed wide receiver Devin Gray streaking down the far sideline, only for the ball to bounce off his hands and into the waiting arms of safety Nigel Warrior. But the throw itself couldn’t have been better.

It’s still early, but Huntley has the edge on McSorley following voluntary workouts.
