Former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts is now QB1 in Philadelphia. The Eagles drafted the Alabama and Oklahoma product in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft, and has since made moves to suggest they are looking to have him lead their offense for the long run.
The team traded their former franchise quarterback Carson Wentz, and even traded back in the 2021 draft, a move that suggested the team was not interested in taking a quarterback with their then-top-10 pick.
Instead, they got him a former teammate of his, and an offensive weapon that will have an immediate impact on the offense: Heisman-winning wide receiver out of Alabama, DeVonta Smith.
Last weekend, Hurts was back in Alabama to host a camp, and he managed to get some reps in with the upcoming rookie wide receiver.
Hurts to Smith, with Smith wearing his old Alabama helmet is just what we needed.
