  • Hayden Hurst, TE, South Carolina

    Hurst is a former pro baseball player who walked on as a tight end for the Gamecocks. He has excellent size, speed and ball skills. He was primarily used as a move tight end. As a route runner, he is very smooth and quickly builds speed. At South Carolina, he wasn't asked to run a lot of traditional option routes and work back to the quarterback. However, he excels on vertical routes and crossers. He tracks the ball smoothly and has a big catch radius. He received the ball quite a bit on tight end reverses and proved plenty capable of making defenders miss or out-running them to the corner. He's more than willing as a run blocker and, while he lacks power, he does a nice job of shielding defenders. Hurst should be a Day 1 starter and has tremendous upside.

    If we don't trade out of 18, I believe this should be our pick. It fills a great need with a Graham/Gronk type player.
    Except this guy can block.

  • Dude's gonna be 25 in his rookie year.

    Hoping they can snag a DL, CB, OL and RB early.
