Tyler Huntley Is The Perfect Backup Quarterback For The Ravens

The Ravens recently made an interesting move that piqued my interest. Baltimore signed Tyler Huntley to come in and compete during training camp and the preseason. I almost forgot he was even in this draft. The Utah quarterback wasn’t even invited to the combine which I found odd. Nevertheless, Huntley found his way to the Ravens in what could turn into a perfect marriage for both sides.

I actually think Huntley was underrated coming into this process. I wouldn’t have batted an eye if he got picked anywhere in the 6th or 7th round. Huntley does one thing really well. The man is accurate. You have to give him that. Pac 12 defenses aren’t the best but Huntley still notched an adjusted completion of 82.6 in 2019. That was the best mark in college football this past year.

Huntley is also accurate. I know Pro Day 40 times are silly, but he recorded a 4.56 time. That’s about what I would have expected. Add in a 43.5-inch vertical which is insane for a quarterback. I’m not sure you can fidget that number. Mobility and footwork won’t be an issue for the Utah quarterback.

Yes, there are concerns with Huntley. No, he doesn’t have a dynamic arm, but he does have plenty of juice. In reality, he was never asked to go out and win games for Utah. Decision making can be an issue. No, Huntley won’t go out there and dominate on his on. For Baltimore fitting this run heavy offense? Huntley is perfect. My East-West notes on Huntley are even more interesting after Baltimore just signed him.

The numbers weren’t super sexy in college but they’re better than you may have anticipated. 73.1 percent, 19 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and some rushing stats to go along with it. The question will be whether Tyler Huntley can usurp Robert Griffin III. That remains to be seen. What is clear is that this isn’t just a wasted camp arm or wasted pick like Trace McSorley was. Huntley has a shot to make this roster and stick as the Ravens backup long term.
