He is making serious money at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Jalen Hurts is showing pro scouts and media pundits at Lucas Oil Stadium that he is a quarterback and a highly productive one.
The native Texan kicked off Thursday with the best performance in the 40-yard dash for signal callers – posting a time of 4.59 seconds.
Hurts would share the highest mark for the broad jump (10’5”) and tied for third with recording a 35” vertical. In the on-field passing drills, the former Alabama and Oklahoma quarterback had some of the best throws.
The ball jumped out his hands and he displayed strong footwork in the pocket.
According to Daniel Jeremiah, a former NFL scout and analyst on NFL Network, he compared Hurts to Dak Prescott of the Cowboys and said he ‘won’t go past the second round.’

Kurt Warner, former NFL quarterback and Super Bowl Champion, compared Hurts to Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks. Warner was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame for guiding both the St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals to Super Bowl appearances.
Prior to the Combine, people looked at Hurts as a developmental projected.
Ever determined, the former national champion has turned some heads.
