He is big and he's strong. That's how he sheds tackles and gets away from defenders. I didn't know Hurts is a power lifter. That explains some things I've noticed in his film - his willingness to take on hits on his runs. I'm still not sure this is a wise thing to do for his long-term health.
Back handed compliments like JB is a top 25 QB in this league, gets hurt then people forget that he was 5-2.
Folks will give AV chance after chance, Rivers as well. Not to much for JB who's half the price as Rivers. And Younger.
What's Rivers excuse? The oline? So why can't JB use the excuse of getting hurt, just like AV, and AL?
The Ravens have built the entire offense around Lamar as a running threat, rather than as a passer. It's very likely you would have to do the same with Hurts if you draft him. The problem is... Hurts is a very good athlete... he's nowhere close to the athlete Lamar is and has nowhere close to his elusiveness. So the question is - can you have similar success? I don't know... I think I would just prefer for someone else to make that bet. It surely will be fun to watch as an experiment, though...
