SMSG's Football Player Scouting Reports ArchiveExclusively available to you here at Seventh Millennium Sports Gear(tm)
In affiliation with ScatterMall.com(tm) Sports Equipment.
|Strength: Maurice Hurt has experience against top competition at both guard and tackle. Maurice Hurt engages defenders very well with his hands and wins battles by keeping them off-balance and away from his body.|
|Weakness: Despite his size and use of hands, Maurice Hurt has below average upper body strength. Maurice Hurt has several medical red flags, though he appeared healthy during his senior season.|
|Development: Maurice Hurt is curiously similar to Derrick Dockery, but a bit smaller, weaker, less athletic, and less accomplished coming out of college. The only thing I can figure is that the Redskins are counting on him playing with more intensity. He certainly has the credentials and natural build to develop into a guard at the NFL level, but seems a poor fit for Washington's offense. He would have to get on a very serious conditioning program to have a shot at a roster spot this year, despite being the first offensive lineman drafted by a team severely deficient in depth. That lack of depth makes a practice squad spot a good possibility for Maurice Hurt. Down the road he could be developed into a productive offensive guard in the right offense.|
|Fantasy Football Rating: Not a good thing for the offense, if he's starting this season.|
|Typecast Outlook Opinion: Experienced with ideal frame, but fitness and athleticism deficiencies. Maurice Hurt is a fitness and technique project.|
