Hurts best year with the Crimson Tide was as a freshman when he threw for 2780 yards and 23 touchdowns. He was also a threat with his feet rushing for 954 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Pros: The biggest pro for Hurts is his legs and it will be a weapon in the next level.Even if he doesn’t ever become a starter, he could play in a Taysom Hill type role using his legs to his advantage. Hurts also is an accurate passer, especially down the field which should translate to the NFL. Hurts also is a winner and a leader. When he was benched at Alabama he took it in stride, and he will be a great addition to any locker room.  

Cons: Most of the cons for Hurts come in the passing game. Hurts is a slow reader of the field, and often will wait until a player is open until he throws the ball. There are also questions about how he would do without superstar players. Playing at Oklahoma and Alabama he was surrounded by all sorts of talent, and if he is on a bad team in the NFL how will he react? 

Projected Teams: Depending on what round he is drafted, the Baltimore Ravens would make a lot of sense for Hurts. Hurts could run a similar offense as Lamar Jackson, and would be a perfect backup.

If the Patriots want a project, Hurts could be a guy that could turn into their full-time starter in a couple of years. 

Jon Gruden also could decide Hurts is a guy they want for their future, and he could be a good option for the Las Vegas Raiders. If nothing else, Hurts would be a great addition for their locker room.
