New York Jets Invite Multiple Quarterbacks To Mini Camp
Aaron Rodgers finally being traded to the New York Jets gives the team four total quarterbacks on their roster: Aaron Rodgers, Zach Wilson, Tim Boyle and Chris Streveler.
Despite having a stacked house in the QB department, the organization is still exploring their options at filling in a back-up role. Gang Green has invited multiple undrafted rookie QBs to rookie mini camp.
As of now the Jets have invited former Fordham QB1 Tim DeMorat and former Incarnate Word QB1 Lindsey Scott Jr.
Tim DeMorat threw for 4,891 yards and had a 56-10 TD-INT ratio in 2022 for the Rams. 24-year-old DeMorat has been playing collegiate football since 2018, posting a stat line of 1033/1684 (61%) passing, with 13,461 yards (3rd most PY in FCS history) for a 123-39 TD-INT ratio, all for a 101.2 QBR.
Overall he is a project QB and would be on the developmental side for any team he is on. One of the biggest factors is that DeMorat can throw a fireball with perfect accuracy going about 25 yards, but any more yards than 25 is risky and leaves room for potential interceptions as his accuracy fades.
Lindsey Scott Jr., joined five different programs across the last seven seasons, but found his fit with Incarnate Word. He threw for 60 touchdowns in 2022 and had 4,657 passing yards all off of 70% pass completion. He is also 24-years-old and overall has less college playing time than DeMorat, appearing in games since 2020.
He is a short QB, standing at 5-foot-10, but is also a stocky one who has an average arm along with accuracy but throws with decent timing. A plus to Scott’s ability is that he has a good lower-body build for the running game and can be a mobile QB.
Teams inviting QBs to mini camps post-draft is nothing new, but undoubtedly it will be interesting to see what will happen.
