Oklahoma: Jalen Hurts, QB
Hurts isn’t going to be a first round draft pick, no matter how many times pundits and fans of his try to push that narrative.
The fact is that his struggles with accuracy at Alabama made him borderline undraftable until Lincoln Riley built an offense around him at Oklahoma.
With outstanding athleticism and a resume that shows that he can make an offense work in ideal circumstances, teams are going to be interested to see what he can do on this big stage.
I think Hurts is going to be a polarizing prospect heading into the 2020 NFL Draft, but I think that there is a spot for him on nearly every team. This offseason should see OCs around the NFL ripping off plays from the Baltimore Ravens, who showed that you can have a package for a player like 2018’s version of Lamar Jackson and 2019’s version of Jalen Hurts.
Call it the new age of Tim Tebow, or the Taysom Hill effect or whatever, but the fact is that even if a player doesn’t have Lamar Jackson levels of upside, you can make him a dangerous weapon if you use him correctly.
