Everyone knows by now that Jalen Hurd is not only transferring out of Tennessee, but is also looking to change positions. The 6’4″, 240-pound back wants to learn to catch the ball as a tight end or receiver.
While he’ll have to go to a JUCO school to play right away and get reps at the position, there is one person who says he shouldn’t change positions at all since he’s definitely draftable as a running back. That one person is former Pro Bowler and All-Pro tight end Frank Wycheck who played for the Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans.
That would be quite the interesting team up and could lead to Hurd becoming an even more formidable player for future opponents. If versatility doesn’t get a guy drafted, what will?
