But ends up on the ground too much and isn't a guy who can consistently create a surge against power. Now, does exhibit some range on the move and can be effective initially on slide down blocks, staying on his man and pushing them past the ball carrier. But, lacks the athleticism to ride his man out through the entire play.
Doesn't play real long armed in any area of the game, but it routinely shows up more so vs. the pass. Possesses a good first step off the snap, but too often only starts to work his hands once he is engaged and rarely is able to gain leverage on contact. Consistently allows defenders to get under his frame and snap his head back with a powerful punch, which causes him to lose balance and get upright. Isn't overly fluid or rangy when asked to slide through contact and consistently looks content to simply hang onto his block. Can be rag dolled at times.
Impression: Possesses good size and a thick trunk, but isn't a standout in any area of the game. Looks more like a camp body."
Positive: Explosive, wide-bodied lineman who is best in a small area. Quick off the snap, stays square, and blocks with good knee bend and pad level. Gets movement run blocking, keeps his feet moving, and shows the ability to pick up stunts or twists thrown by the opponent. Strong and controls opponents once engaged at the point.
Negative: Does not consistently finish blocks. Bends at the waist. Ineffective in motion.
Analysis: Hurt is a solid college player who developed late in his career. He offers the size and skills for the next level and could be a surprise starter two or three years down the road."
