Hurts was reunited with former Alabama teammate DeVonta Smith after the Eagles selected the wide receiver with the 10th overall pick of the 2021 NFL draft, Tim McManus of ESPN reports.

Although Hurts hasn't officially been named the Eagles' starting quarterback, selecting a receiver rather than another signal-caller seemingly cements him in the role even further. It also gives the 22-year-old another first-round weapon to throw to after Philadelphia took Jalen Reagor out of TCU last year. It's certainly a major upgrade for a receiving corps that compiled the third-fewest receiving yards last season (2,082).
