Jalen Hurts, QB

Three out of four on this list are from that fantastic 2020 class, with all three stars having been picked after Wilson and in the second round. This time, we come to a guy that could have succeeded Ryan Tannehill as the Titan's franchise quarterback.

Jalen Hurts was taken all the way back at pick no. 53 by the Philadelphia Eagles, when the team still had Carson Wentz under center. The Eagles knew, though, that they would be finding a future superstar in Hurts. The guy proved to be a winner in college, and he's been nothing short of impressive as a pro.

Last year, Hurts experienced a true breakout which would earn him one of the fattest contracts in league history. Hurts actually became the highest-paid player in the league, but would ultimately lose that title once Lamar Jackson signed his new deal.

This is somewhat unfair, because Tannehill actually led the Titans to an 11-5 record in 2020. Tannehill enjoyed a phenomenal season, throwing for 3,819 yards, 33 touchdowns and just seven picks.

However, that was the height of Tannehill's days in Tennessee. After that season, Tannehill's career would start a downward trend. Now, we're seeing his job on the line after the Titans took Will Levis in this year's draft.
