Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about JALEN HURTS: Oklahoma, 6010 222 4.59. Three-year starter, Houston, TX. Heisman Trophy runner-up, named second-team All-America by Sporting News, a first-team All-Big 12 selection, led the nation in yards per pass attempt (11.3) and ranked second in passing efficiency rating (191.2, fourth best in school history). Totaled 9,477 yards and 80 touchdowns on 682 of 1,047 passing (65.1 percent) in four-year career between Alabama and Oklahoma. Posted 38-4 record as starter. Played three seasons at Alabama helping the Crimson Tide to a 41-3 record (26-2 mark as a starter in 2016 and ’17). He played in seven College Football Playoff games (five starts) and helped Alabama to the national title in 2017. Possibly the most underrated player in the 2020 draft. We won’t go with the Dak Prescott comparison from four years ago, but their body build is similar. If there ever was a developmental quarterback to work with, Jalen Hurts’ name should be on the top of the list. Nobody has been under the microscope more than the fleetfooted strong-armed passer. He is athletic, smart, speedy, plus possesses a strong arm. He has made good decisions in the heat of the battle. Battles (national playoff games) that most quarterbacks never see. Some talk about his accuracy, but he led the country in yards per attempt with 11.3 yards. The FBS record is 11.6 yards. He was third in the country for yards per completion with 16.3 yards. A winner at two power-five legendary institutions with completely different offensive systems. Commands the huddle and does what is asked of him. Accurate on short-to-intermediate routes. Throws the ball with touch, especially on fades. Excels at back shoulder throw. Feels the rush coming. Knows how to maximize yardage with his legs. A creative runner who shows initiative in the open field. The athletic right hander is built like a running back. Has improved his accuracy. His mobility and durability puts fear in defensive coordinators. Has excellent vision and running skills when he pulls the ball down. Throws well on the run. Distributes the ball to all receivers. Highly respected in the locker room. Doesn’t have much responsibility at the line of scrimmage. Hasn’t really had to make multiple reads. Senior Bowl notes: Must have felt like a fighter pilot setting back in the pocket during the game with numerous protection breakdowns. But to his credit, the ex-Sooner hit on 6/13 passes for 58 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Had a solid week of practice. Made quick decisions and threw a tight spiral. His time at Oklahoma helped him come out of a shell especially as a leader. He picked up the Bengal offense early in the week and despite the mediocre blocking, he stayed focused. 2019 stats: 237/340, 3851 yds, 69.7%, 32 TD, 8 INT, 1298 yds rushing, 20 TD, 191.20 QB rating. Ball velocity 54 mph. OSR:4/15. Second/third round. (A-31 3/4, H-9 3/4, SS-DNP, VJ-35).
