This year, they added a guy who may not necessarily count against that category.
The Ravens used the 197th overall pick on Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley.
He’s a versatile player who presents much of the same running threat as Jackson. Some think he could become a Taysom Hill-type gadget player, but Saints coach Sean Payton compared him to college QB-turned-receiver Julian Edelman.
He declined the chance to work out as a defensive back before the draft, so there may be some resistance on his part to a new role.
Either way, he’s probably not destined to be a pure quarterback, since the Ravens have Robert Griffin III to back up Jackson, and they can go back to carrying two.
