Alabama football alums at quarterback are dominating OTAs and minicamp in the National Football League.
Jalen Hurts has been putting on a show for the Philadelphia Eagles. Coach Nick Sirianni has been pleased with Hurts’ accuracy, footwork in the pocket, and release of the ball. He trained in Southern California in the offseason to be better as a passer, and the work is paying off. According to reports, Hurts tossed four touchdowns and no interceptions in two OTA practices with media.

He completed 20 of 25 passes in 7-on-7 drills.
Eliot Shorr-Parks, a beat reporter for the Eagles, said Hurts had a slow start to Wednesday’s practice but finished strong.
He tossed a pair of touchdowns to John Hightower and Quez Watkins. Hurts could have had a third score, but Deon Cain could not complete the play. Hurts completed 10 of 14 passes with two touchdowns on Wednesday. He is displaying accuracy in tight windows and allowing his receivers to make plays downfield. Philadelphia will have minicamp practices soon and training camp arrives in July. Hurts is taking huge strides and understands the expectation is for him to show growth and lead Philadelphia on a playoff run. He blasted a walk-off home run in DeVonta Smith’s softball game, but Hurts is slinging darts on the field.
