DT out of Michigan, I know we have depth and skill at the DT postion but this guy has the Geno Atkins mold. Our problem this year with the D-line has been pushing the interior of the pocket, Sheard has done a great job of getting pressure but most of the time he's the only one who is in the QB's face which is why his sack count is low this year. I think Hurst could really help push the interior of the pocket and fill the void the colts have at interior pass rush.
Pff rants and raves about him. heres what they have to say
University of Michigan defensive tackle Maurice Hurst enters the 2017 college football season as a PFF Day 1 projection for the 2018 NFL draft and ranks among the top defensive interior prospects in the country.
Hurst has performed at a very high level each of the past two seasons, grading in the top 20 among all interior defensive lineman each season. Hurst’s 2016 grade of 86.3 overall ranks within the top 10 of returning players at his position for 2017.
When on the field, few players have been as productive as Hurst. He has been dominant as a pass-rusher and against the run. His 15.3 pass rush productivity in 2016 ranked No. 1 among all 2016 draft-eligible interior defensive lineman while his 11.6 run stop percentage finished him No. 6 in this draft class.
Over the last two seasons, Hurst has only played a total of 758 snaps and hasn’t yet produced at the high level he’s shown capable of over a full season. With the departures of drafted 2016 prospects, Hurst should have an opportunity see more snaps.
