Another University of Miami native is heading to Jacksonville, according to Miami Hurricanes assistant athletics director/director of communications Chris Yandle.
Wide receiver Allen Hurns will join fellow rookie wide receivers Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee when the team heads into training camp.
Allen was a productive facet of the Hurricanes' high-powered attack. Showing off good hands, he finished the 2013 season with 62 receptions for 1,162 yards and six touchdowns.
Like Stephen Morris, Hurns has experienced working with Coach Fisch.
But with Cecil Shorts, Mike Brown and Ace Sanders also on the roster, it may be difficult for this young man to make the team—regardless of his Miami connection.
Weight: 198 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.55 seconds
Vertical jump: 31 inches
Bench press: 14 reps
Hurns uses his impressive speed to inflict the most damage. He's a straight-line type of player who can be utilized mainly on screen passes and underneath routes.
When he gets into space, he can make people miss. That could give him some value as a punt returner if he winds up catching on in Jacksonville.
Like Morris, Hurns has a wiry frame. His lack of ideal size is going to relegate him to working in the slot if he can earn a spot on this roster.
On top of that, Hurns struggled to create consistent pockets of separation while at Miami. With the competition getting cranked up a notch or two, that could be a major problem for his overall effectiveness as a pass-catcher in the NFL.
