Jalen Hurts Scouting Report
Summer Scouting Report
Long and loopy motion does damage to timing and accuracy. Deceptive runner in the open field. Not going to turn short gains into long runs, but he is able to hold his own in a foot race against linebackers. Tips off defenders with his setup. Able to get beyond his first read on rare occasions. All arm with his throws; doesn’t incorporate lower body mechanics. Elusive enough to get outside of the pocket and extend plays. Overly reliant on his legs to bail him out of tough situations. Lost the starting job in the middle of the National Championship. Incredibly unorthodox style is a bit tough for defenses to prepare for. Arm talent isn’t special, but he can send it downfield with heat if needed. Footwork is way behind schedule. Accuracy improved in 2018. UDFA Summer Grade.
