    In a surprise move, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Jalen Hurts in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft on Friday.

    Hurts represents good value at No. 53 overall, but the Eagles are locked into quarterback Carson Wentz, having just handed him a four-year, $128 million extension in June.

    Philadelphia values having a "second quarterback" -- the organization doesn't like using the term "backup," a philosophy that was validated when Nick Foles stepped in for an injured Wentz in 2017 and completed the Eagles' Super Bowl run. Still, this pick is a bit of a shocker.

    At first I thought the Eagles got a steal with Jalen. I didn't understand why Eagle fans were disappointed with the pick. Jalen Hurts is a hell of QB. However, I didn't know they had locked in Wentz for 4 years. Makes one wonder what else they have in mind
