The Eagles had some interesting players to choose from at pick 53.

They threw us the ultimate curve ball.


Most of you hate the pick, from what I can see. I’ve got serious questions about it.

That said, look at the Value Board I did for the Eagles earlier today and you’ll see that I have Hurts listed in the 2nd round.


QB is the most important position in football and this group of college QBs largely stunk. Hurts was the one guy outside the first round that actually interested me. He is a good player who made big strides in 2019. He is a great leader and incredible competitor. His intangibles are off the charts. This is a guy you want on your team.

Carson Wentz has had injury issues at the end of the last three seasons. Poor QB play hurt the Eagles last year in the playoffs. You draft a guy like Hurts to develop as your backup.

I don’t like the value. The second round is early for adding a backup QB.

There is also the question of how Wentz and the locker room will handle this. You never know if it will cause issues. I do know Hurts is the kind of guy who will do what it takes to make it work.

It will be interesting to see what Howie and Doug have to say about this.
