Finally! He’s going to have a fun time feasting on the QBs of my Denver Broncos for years.

as an all-timer.  I CANNOT believe Mo Hurst was picked in the 5th round.  Years from now we will talk about how dumb NFL GMs are, and this will be the best evidence.

To be fair, 2000 was a weird year for quarterbacks - the first one to go, as I recall, was Chad Pennington at #18 and that was AFTER a kicker by the name of Sebastian Janikowski, who would go on to be a good kicker, of course. In the context of that particular draft, if you ask me if I am shocked in retrospect that someone now known as "The GOAT" fell to the sixth round, I wouldn't be shocked. Just an odd draft as NFL drafts go.

Tom Brady didn't have a questionable heart issue either...Like it or not, teams are spending millions, nobody wants a defect. Honestly, ALL NFL guys should draft in at a base salary, and EARN their money after a year of play. Personally hope Mo gets his shot and has a very long and successful career. The upside HE DOES have a degree from Michigan....he's pretty set.

got the value of the draft.  A tough D lineman with quickness and a huge motor.  No pun intended - but Mo Hurst has PLENTY of heart.

I hope he has a long and successful NFL career and life, and shows all the teams who drafted D Linemen in rounds 2 through 4 that they made a huge mistake.

Congrats Mo!

i don't get this free fall.  i mean even he doesn't pan out, are people going to say 5 years from now "damn, i can't believe we wasted a 3rd round pick on hurst".  yet, his upside is huge.  he's the best DT i've ever seen here at UM, let alone almost everywhere else, and i go back a ways.

here's to hoping for a long and healthy career for Mo.

Play(s). For the first time since Kenny Stabler I can find some interest in watching The Raiders(Chris Berman voice). Glad for Mo but would love to see him in the Blue and Maize with next years team. Looking forward to the signature belly rub on Sundays. Go get em Mo!!!!

Its not the size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the heart....something something something...IDK. Mo's heart will be all in on this.  IMO when all is said and done Mo will be mentioned in the same breath as all the great Raiders on defense...and IIRC there are many.

Was thinking yesterday the most out of character franchise for Mo would be the Raiders and wa la.  Good luck to Mo.  Hope he has a long and great career in NFL.

Other teams? The Raiders passed on him four (4) times!

WTF?? He had the same thing at Michigan, and was cleared to play. It was just last year that he missed some spring practice time. He's fine, and John fucking Gruden will reap the benefits.

Congrats to Mo on being drafted. Always enjoyed hearing him being interviewed. Him driving the Uber was one of my favorite parts of "All or Nothing".

I wish the Giants drafted instead of the dude from Miami. Congrats Mo, I hope your heart is ok and you become the Tom Brady/Antonio Brown of d tackles.

We live in a world where NFL GMs will draft Johnny Manziel and Tim Tebow in the first round but won't draft Mo Hurst that high because they're afraid they'll look dumb... Make em look real dumb now Mo
