Boom

Hurst was the first tight end drafted (No. 25 overall) in April. He did not miss a game in college at South Carolina, where Hurst was a unanimous All-SEC pick last year. During his sophomore and junior seasons, he averaged 46 catches and 500 receiving yards.

Bust

Hurst caught just three total TDs in three college seasons. He will compete with Maxx Williams (among others) in the Ravensí retooled pass-catching corps.

Bottom Line

The Ravens surprised many draft experts by taking Hurst so high. He will have to compete for playing time, but you can bet Baltimore has big plans early on for Hurst. For owners looking to gamble on a rookie tight end, Hurst might be the next-best option after Gesicki.
