Possible 2020 NFL Draft landing spots

Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck‘s retirement forced Jacoby Brissett back into the starting job for the Indianapolis Colts. And he’s performed well — but it still is in question if he’s the guy for the long haul. While they may want to see more from Brissett, bringing in Jalen Hurts to see if he could both prove to be the quarterback of the future and also push Brissett might be in the Colts’ best interest.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It’s looking more like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers need to cut bait with former No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston. Frankly, he just can’t be counted on to be the guy he was drafted to be. Thus, Hurts could be the next player in the mix to line up under center for the Bucs. His pristine decision-making would be a welcomed diversion from the way Winston has played.

Tennessee Titans

With Marcus Mariota getting benched heading into Week 7 in favor of Ryan Tannehill, the Tennessee Titans now need a long-term plan at quarterback. It would be interesting to see if they would throw Hurts into the fire but one thing that’s certain is that the Sooners star signal-caller would provide a shot in the arm for Mike Vrabel‘s team.

Los Angeles Chargers

Few teams in the NFL have been as disappointing as the Los Angeles Chargers in the 2019 season. And while that’s not on quarterback Philip Rivers, the Bolts do need to look to the future at the position and have a long-term plan. Bringing Hurts into the mix to learn behind Rivers might be best for the young quarterback’s development.

Wild Card: Miami Dolphins

Considering that it’s looking like the Miami Dolphins will have the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, they are likely to take Tua Tagovailoa with that selection. Having said that, if Hurts continues on his current trajectory, the Dolphins could throw everyone a curveball and build their franchise around the Oklahoma quarterback. Unlikely? Yes. But can you rule it out? No chance.
