The Philadelphia Eagles selected Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, causing fans to wonder what’s next for the offense.

The 2020 NFL Draft has come and gone, with the Philadelphia Eagles selecting ten players over the three-day virtual process, which equals the amount of draft picks taken in both the 2018 and 2019 selection meetings combined. Philly’s 2020 draft class is headlined by the 21st-overall pick, wide receiver Jalen Reagor, and a surprise selection in Round 2, Jalen Hurts.

Eagles vice president and general manager Howie Roseman and the rest of his team emphasized taking the maximum number of players possible and ensuring that Philly fields a faster team.

Despite the event’s enormous potential for disaster, the only real headlines were Bill Belichick’s canine assistant, Kliff Kingsbury’s viral bachelor pad, and Commissioner Roger Goodell seemingly losing interest in the league’s draft.

For the Eagles, the final four rounds were littered with high upside picks including wide receivers John Hightower and Quez Watkins, a pair of former Auburn Tigers offensive lineman in Jack Driscoll and Prince Tega Wanogho, and versatile defensive players like safety K’Von Wallace, linebacker Shaun Bradley, and edge rusher Casey Toohill.

The highlight of this draft though was the selection of Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Jalen Hurts with the 53rd overall pick. As if it hasn’t been done enough, let’s discuss that one in detail.
