Recall that last year there was some speculation over another quarterback switching positions. In the end, he didn’t, and it paid off for him, which McSorley will be well aware of. That said, McSorley is in an entirely different class, and is rated by most prognosticators as a day three pick entering the Combine, making his road a long one.
