Overview:

Hurst ended his career at South Carolina, where he played in 38 career games, had 100 receptions, for 1281 receiving yards, and 3 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, he has good speed, is a solid pass catcher, and has good hands. He is a good route runner, and was a go-to receiver for the Gamecocks. He is also a solid run blocker, he opens holes up for his backs, and he is a solid blocker in the open field. On the other hand, he did not get into the endzone that much, but that may be due to South Carolina not running a pro-style offense. But with all of that said, I see Hurst as an early day 2 pick when it is all said and done.
