Overall

Hurst is a great player who can be a force on the defensive line. He can explode off the line and spilt double teams to get to the quarterback. He can be overpowered in the run game but excels on passing downs. He may be started off in a rotation in the NFL until he can bulk up a little and add some size and power. He is looking to be a mid-first round pick come draft day.
