Player Analysis

The Good

  • Great runner, with escapability and ability to throw on the run
  • Leads receivers well when they are open
  • Very good without pressure, able to look off safeties
  • At times willing to take a hit to give the play that split second to develop
  • Good location and touch on deep passes

The Bad

  • More often that not, chooses to run at any sort of pressure
  • Arm strength is a question
  • Takes a while to process plays which leads to some poor decisions
  • Long release
  • Struggles when contained in pocket while pressured

Overall Assessment

PRE-DRAFT: Hurts has all of the intangibles that the NFL is looking for; he changed schools (systems) while in college, is calm and poised, and is a winner.  His athleticism will be attractive to many teams and looks to be a high-end project. His processing of the plays and lack of comfort in the pocket while being pressured will prevent him from being a full time starter early in his career. Expect Hurts to be drafted on Day 2 of the draft.  Hurts has a ceiling that will be attractive to many dynasty players, so he will probably be drafted earlier than he should. You will likely be able to grab him in the late 3rd in 1QB and expect him to go early-to-mid 2nd in Superflex leagues.

POST-DRAFT: Hurts was drafted by Philadelphia in the second round.  He fell into a difficult situation since the Eagles already have a young, franchise quarterback in Carson Wentz. This leads me to believe that they have some plans to use Hurts in some non-traditional roles along with being a quality backup. Wentz isn’t the healthiest of quarterbacks, so there may be opportunity from time to time for Hurts to start.  His situation is an intriguing one and he is someone that I want to have a share or two of, because I think that the coaching staff in Philadelphia are going to get creative with him. Hurts looks to be going in the late-second to early-third round in superflex rookie drafts.  I think you can still pass on him in 1QB.
