5 Final questions and answers on Eagles selection of Jalen Hurts
1. It would be hard to call this a warm reaction.
Social media erupted into chaos when the Eagles selected the Alabama Crimson Tide transfer in the second round, with experts, media members, and fans struggling to understand the team’s logic.
Even Roseman had a hard time explaining the pick effectively, with his labeling of the Eagles as a “quarterback factory” quickly becoming a joke amongst the team’s fanbase.
There are a number of different variables that can be used to analyze this pick, including how this impacts Carson Wentz, how the offense will look moving forward, and identifying what Jalen Hurts skills are. Regardless of what position a team decides to go with, second-round selections are expected to be talented, and they’re expected to contribute early.
Verdict: Everyone’s had time to calm down and analyze things, so now that emotions are more even-keeled (or at least they should be), it’s time to evaluate everything about the thought process, the selection, and what contributed to the Eagles selecting a quarterback with their second-round pick when there were so many other needs.
