Twitter reacted to the Raiders' decision to add a talented player, albeit one with health concerns:
At 6'2" and 282 pounds, Hurst is a little undersized for the position but has a great burst off the ball and is quick enough and strong enough to get into the backfield consistently.
While size is a bit of an issue, the bigger question mark for teams came when he was flagged for a heart condition at the scouting combine. However, he was cleared to play a month later, per ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.
Todd McShay of ESPN.com reported some teams took him off the board completely because of the heart problem.
Hurst was a consensus All-American last season for the Wolverines, consistently becoming a disruptive presence in the middle of the front seven. While defensive tackles don't often produce big statistics, he finished last year with 61 tackles, with 14.5 coming for a loss and five sacks.
Pro Football Focus noted just how good he was in 2017:
If he can remain healthy, Hurst has a chance to make an immediate impact in the pros.
