Ravens sixth-round draft pick Trace McSorley made one thing clear during his time as Penn State’s quarterback, he’s a great athlete.
When Baltimore drafted him, they had plans of using him as the Saints use Taysom Hill. He has seen time at quarterback, tight end, wide receiver and running back, as well as on special teams.
McSorley has been getting work in as a punt returner. He spoke about his new challenge during an appearance on the Ravens’ podcast, via NFL.com:
“It’s something that’s a new challenge for me, something that I hadn’t really had never done,” McSorley said, via the Ravens’ Final Drive podcast. “So it’s just something interesting to be able to come in and learn and try and prove myself in a different way that I can be able to get on the field and make an impact.
“It’s been interesting. It’s had its ups and downs, obviously the first couple times doing it, but it’s going well. I’m looking forward to be able to come out and do anything that I can, especially in the special teams aspect for the team. I want to prove myself there.”
It makes sense to get McSorley on the field. He had a huge impact on the Penn State offense and should be able to fill a similar role to Hill’s with the Saints quite nicely.
