Have the Ravens found their Taysom Hill?
That’s what Baltimore is expecting after drafting quarterback Trace McSorley from the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
In addition to his traditional position as Saints quarterback, Hill played with tight end, wide receiver and running back. He also joined kickoff and punt coverage and the field goal block component.

McSorley was a dual-threat player as a starter at Penn State — he ran for 1,697 yards and 30 scores and handed for 9,899 yards and 77 touchdowns. It’s easy to see why the Ravens wish to utilize him in various ways.
«You saw what the Saints have done down there with their third quarterback,» Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in May, via ESPN. «That’s something we will have a chance to do, too, with Trace. He is going to have the ability to play with special teams. The more you can do. You need players with characters, and he is a guy that has a opportunity to have a huge role .»
Even though the comparisons to Hill are evident, the Ravens are analyzing McSorley out in a position even Hill did not play in 2018 — punt returner. McSorley took reps returning punts within the past several weeks at minicamp practices and Ravens OTAs.
«It’s something that’s a brand new challenge for me personally, something which I hadn’t really hadn’t ever completed,» McSorley said, via the»The Lounge» podcast. «So it’s just something interesting to have the ability to enter and learn and attempt to establish myself at another way I could be able to get on the area and make an impact.
«It has been interesting. It has had its ups and downs, obviously the first couple of times doing this, but it is going well. I am looking forward to be able to come out and do anything that I could, especially in the particular teams aspect for the group. I would like to prove myself »
Whatever the Ravens do with McSorley, expect it to be untraditional. Second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson is the starter, but that does not mean the field won’t be seen by McSorley.
