Jalen Hurts

I can list off a lot of fans who would not be happy about this one, but I’m actually not opposed – at least not as of now. Jalen Hurts might have been the worst of the past three Lincoln Riley quarterbacks, and a 20-year-old Spencer Rattler already looks better than Hurts did at Oklahoma. However, that doesn’t mean that Hurts can’t be good in the NFL.

The Eagles were rumored to be in the market for a quarterback this past April, but they elected to build around Hurts instead. However, with an absurd amount of draft capital in 2022, Philadelphia could essentially have their pick of the litter.

I can see a scenario where Hurts looks impressive at times in 2021 and shows promise as a potential franchise guy, but if the Eagles finish with a poor record (and they very well could), it would be hard for them to pass on taking one of the best quarterback prospects next year.

Depending on how he performs in 2021, the Steelers may be able to acquire Jalen Hurts for an early-to-mid-round draft choice. With a quality arm and great athletic traits and ability to extend the play, this is something worth exploring for Pittsburgh.

It will be interesting to see what the Steelers elect to do at the quarterback position after the 2021 season. Though they could go with Mason Rudolph or take one in the 2022 NFL Draft, trading for one of these passers could be a possibility.
