1. Tyler Huntley, QB, Ravens
Speaking of Tyler Huntley, the former Utah quarterback shined on Thursday. McSorley probably got the better of his teammate on Wednesday, but on Thursday, it was all Huntley.
The former undrafted rookie tossed multiple touchdowns and made a few tight-window throws. He threw the ball with confidence and poise and looked the part of a competent NFL quarterback.
If the Ravens were to decide the backup quarterback job today, odds are Huntley would be the deserving winner based on merit.
His best throw came when he heaved the ball 70 yards downfield to an awaiting Jaylon Moore who split the safeties for a long touchdown.
With Jackson out until at least the end of next week, Huntley and McSorley will both be given plenty of opportunities to prove that they deserve to be the primary backup quarterback in 2021.
Huntley came away as the slight favorite following spring practices, and he once again appears to have taken a slim lead after the first two days of training camp.
There’s still a lot of time, however. The Ravens like McSorley and this is a battle that will likely come down to the very end of the summer.
But as it stands right now, Huntley has made his case early in training camp. He was the star of Thursday’s practice.
