Jalen Hurts drafted #53 overall by Philadelphia Eagles

This was unexpected.

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

In a surprising move, the Philadelphia Eagles chose Jalen Hurts in the second round, #53 overall.

Philadelphia already has an entrenched starting QB in Carson Wentz, so perhaps head coach Doug Pederson has some special packages in mind for him. We had briefly examined whether the Saints’ Taysom Hill was carving a path for Jalen, so perhaps a slash type role is in the cards.

In any case, we know that Philly is getting a great person and teammate. Best of luck to him.

Roll Tide.
