The Eagles left the NFL world buzzing when they selected Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft Friday night.
The pick makes little to no sense with a franchise quarterback one year removed from a near MVP season already in place with Wentz. Unless the team has a plan to use both at one time like the Saints do with Taysom Hill, drafting Hurts is a clear indictment on Wentz’s heath, which would have easily been solved by signing a veteran QB currently on the market and using the draft pick for weapons to better the team.
Not all fans were opposed to the pick though, with one fan tweeting how he thinks Wentz is overrated after his team took Hurts.
The Eagles twitter account then proceeded to ‘like’ that very tweet.
