I HIGHLY doubt Hurts goes top 2. He doesn't have Baker's arm or Kyler's athleticism.

He won't but I expect end to mid of 1st round

I don't think Hurts goes in the first at this point. He hasn't shown first round passing and his athleticism is limited when compared to a guy like Lamar Jackson who was still probably a better passer coming out too.

Right now, I could see someone taking a chance on him in the second but I still view him as a better runningback prospect.

He's looking even better than I (as a Sooner fan/alum) would have thought coming into this season. Too bad the D ruined his chances of a Heisman or Championship this past game @ Kansas St. >:(

I think he will be a 1st round pick.

What other QBs are projected in the 1st 

Tua, Burrow, Herbert, Eason, Hurts and Fromm. I got this from just reading the QB thread

I think he should be a gadget QB a stacked team could draft, and have ~20 plays he can run like a boss. If it's a 2 score game, the starting QB can sit for a drive without losing offensive potency.

If Lamar Jackson can go 32nd with all the concerns about his ability to be an accurate passer, then Hurts can absolutely do the same.

I can't believe I'm saying this...but I would probably rather draft Hurts in the late first than Tu'a in the top 5.  

An NFL coach has to be willing to adjust their philosophy if they want one of these QB's.  I'm not saying they can't be successful, but there have to be some considerations given the skill set.  The Ravens have done that this season.  That being said, I'm not sold on Tua.  He has NFL receivers with an NFL line and NFL RBs playing against guys who will never sniff an NFL roster.  Not to say he's not talented...but I'd be mad if my team was Tanking for Tua.

Both Kyler and Barrett proved you only need one transcendent season.  Between the transfer experience in two leagues as well as playing in big games he’s seen it

Hurts is not Kyler Murray (who's Barrett?). He's clearly a limited passer and even as a runner he's not transcendent. Hurts should go no earlier than the 3rd round and probably not as a quarterback, either. That said, I think his ceiling is the 2nd.

I think it's easy to think that a guy putting up big numbers in college is good enough to go high in the draft. But players don't take their stats with them to the NFL; they take their tools.

Yeah, that seems to be the order right now. Hurts and Fromm are the most likely to fall at this point in time.

The trash Ohio State QB from a few years back.

Ha, that's the only qb that was coming to my mind.  I'm guessing he meant Haskins then, if Barrett is JT.  He was the opposite of one transcendent season.
