2. Let’s talk numbers. Here are a few statistics.
Hurts played three years at Alabama, completing 62.9 percent of his passes while throwing for 5,626 yards and 48 touchdowns versus only 12 interceptions. He also contributed to the ground game with 1,976 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns for the Crimson Tide.
After being benched in the 2017 National Championship against the Georgia Bulldogs, Hurts took a back seat for most of the 2018 season before transferring to the quarterback-friendly program at Oklahoma. As a Sooner in 2019, Hurts was the runner-up for the Heisman Trophy, completing 69.7 percent of his passes and throwing for 3,851 yards and 32 touchdowns versus only eight interceptions. He also ran for 1,298 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Verdict: Hurts is, first and foremost a traditional quarterback, but his biggest strength is his ability to make plays with his legs. He’s a dynamic athlete, with over 3,200 yards and 43 touchdowns on the ground in his college career. He’s also an incredibly accurate passer in the short and intermediate parts of the field, emphasized by his near 70 percent completion percentage at Oklahoma.
