2013 NFL Undrafted Free Agents: Tino Sunseri gets tryout with Baltimore Ravens

Justin K. Aller

I wanted to get to this earlier, but with the site near destruction after the recent flurry of news, there was simply no time. But Pitt quarterback Tino Sunseri has been given a tryout with the Baltimore Ravens.

There's not much out there on it right now and every 'report' I've seen links it back to this tweet:

There will be those out there surprised by the move, but you really shouldn't be. At this point, NFL teams are willing to give nearly anyone a look in rookie minicamps. With undrafted free agents playing their way onto rosters in some cases, teams don't want to leave any stone unturned.

And when you factor in that Tino Sunseri had pretty good senior season (great, here come the comments), it's not much of a surprise that someone wants to give him a look. Even if they haven't seen him much on film, 3,300 yards and 21 touchdowns to only three interceptions in a major college football conference will draw the attention of nearly anyone.

Let's be clear on this - I'm not expecting him to stick. Sunseri is not only a bit undersized, but hasn't shown any ability to lead a team from behind and lacks accuracy on a deep ball. He has a bit of scrambling ability, but the obscene number of sacks he took show that he likely doesn't possess some of the decision-making attributes needed in the NFL.
