Doug Pederson responded to the Philadelphia Eagles drafting Jalen Hurts by heaping praise on the youngster.

In his estimation, Hurts will have a very positive impact on the organization.

“Jalen Hurts is a good quarterback and he was drafted as a quarterback first,” Pederson told the media.

“But he has a unique skill set. He’s a great runner, he throws well on the run, he’s got a unique set of skills that we’re going to take a look at.”

Over the course of three years with Alabama Hurts recorded 1,976 yards and 23 scores. In his final year at Oklahoma, he amassed roughly the same totals.

It will be interesting to see what impact he has on the Philadelphia offense.
