Incredibly athletic and mobile QB. Built like a running back and has incredible change of direction ability. Decent accuracy in the short to intermediate levels of the field. Struggles mightily airing the ball downfield and putting it where it needs to be. Constantly overthrowing or underthrowing receivers. Average decision making ability. Appears to be a one read QB by design and if the read isn't there, he'll tuck it and run. That can extend sometimes to the WR needing to be wide open in order to release the ball. Trusts his legs more than his arm. Poor mental processor and rarely goes through his full progressions. Will deliver the ball most likely where he's being told to throw it and struggles to create anything more off of that. Worked against inferior defenses, but LSU and even Baylor saw right through it. Shut Hurts down and forced him to beat them on the ground. Average arm strength. Able to send the ball down field, but has to wind up to be able to do so. Deficiencies in being able to get the ball sideline to sideline quickly or force throws into tight windows. Decent pocket presence, but often bails out too early. Is unable to keep his eyes downfield while navigating a broken down pocket and turns into a running back too soon. Poor mechanics. Long windup release that allows defenders to get a read much quicker on where he's going with the ball. Opens up the door for defenders to knock it away. Poor footwork and rarely drives through his throws. Rarely rotates his hips and follows through. Relies on his upper body to generate the majority of his power and it fails him downfield. Clutch player, but uses his athleticism primarily. Played in big moments and succeeded in some for college football, but unlikely this translates to the NFL field. Superb athlete. Shifty and built extremely well. Has great top-end speed and burst. Overall, an intriguing prospect, but will need to have a NFL team completely rework their offense for him to be the focal point and it have success. Would be best utilized in a backup role or FLEX role like a Taysom Hill. Is not Lamar Jackson level of athletic, but can provide a chess piece for an innovative play caller. Very dependent upon landing spot.

Jalen Hurts is active for Week 2

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is officially active and will be the No. 2 quarterback for the team's Week 2 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact

With Wentz struggling in the final three quarters of the team's Week 1 loss to the Washington Football Team, this move will surely lead to speculation about the future of the position. However, it's likely that Wentz is not anywhere close to the hot seat, but Hurts could see the field in special packages as early as today.
