Kirk Herbstreit Gets Brutally Honest About Jalen Hurts
Kirk Herbstreit got brutally honest about former Alabama and Oklahoma star Jalen Hurts recently.
In his estimation, the former Crimson Tide and Sooners quarterback will do well at the next level.
“There’s always one player who’s the most intriguing,” Herbstreit said.
“I enjoyed watching him and how he carried himself at Alabama. He was a great teammate, came into the SEC championship and saved their season. We all saw last year what he did in Lincoln Riley’s system.
“I think he’s an interesting commodity. I would not compare him to Lamar Jackson at all. He’s more of a power runner. Jackson is like a Mike Vick.
“I think he throws the ball much better than people give him credit. You watch him throw in shorts, he throws the ball as well as anyone in the draft. I think (what he needs to do) is to continue to grow in reading coverage,” he continued.
“If he doesn’t go through his reads, his instinct is to take off. He’ll get uncomfortable and want to get out.”
Over the course of his final season at Oklahoma Hurts amassed 3,851 yards and 32 touchdowns.
