Hurst has the hands, speed, quickness, and fluid athletic ability to become the Hunter Henry of the East in a Ravens offense that has the depth chart to use two tight-end sets. Tight end is a difficult position for a rookie to step in and deliver immediately, but if the Ravens use Hurst as the second tight end that opponents are game planning against as a primary option, he could thrive early.

Summary

The tight ends group in Baltimore has been struck by bad injury luck and a mix of busts in the past few seasons. Ben Watson was hurt in the first preseason game of 2016 after his career year in 2015 with New Orleans. Then, after Dennis Pitta's resurgent 2016, he was injured in the 2017 preseason and has since retired. Crockett Gillmore was also frequently hurt. Maxx Williams has been a mix of underwhelming and injured, and Darren Waller - the converted college wide receiver who has been in trouble for drugs multiple times and was suspended for all of 2017 - hasn't materialized either. The team's first pick of the 2018 draft - a fact that time may forget with Lamar Jackson being the more "exciting" pick - Hurst is old by rookie standards. He'll be 25 before Baltimore's first regular game and will hit that milestone before fellow-tight end Maxx Williams, who was selected three years ago. He was a baseball standout who played in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization briefly before going back to college football at South Carolina. (May 6)
