Happy Hump Day, friends and fans!

With the 2020 NFL Draft just over a week away, ESPN’s Maria Taylor caught up with former Oklahoma Sooners starting QB Jalen Hurts on IG Live to discuss what he’s been up to during the last month, as well as his time at Alabama and OU. At the 1:35 mark in the video, he shows off his new (old) digs. That weight room may not be at the state-of-the-art level he’s used to in Norman or Tuscaloosa, but it apparently got the job done and then some.

Taylor also showed Hurts the Marvel superhero comparison ESPN made for him. As it turns out, the Mighty Thor aka God of Thunder looks to be a pretty great parallel for the power-lifting dual-threat. Start watching from the 15:03 mark in the interview above to see his reaction to the epic side-by-side illustration.

Whoever ends up drafting Jalen Hurts will be getting a player who outworks everybody in the room. He may not be a starter from Day One, but in time he could very well carve out a nice role for himself — whether that’s behind center or as a wrinkle of the offense.

Now onto today’s Hot Links! OSU’s Okudah gives OU’s Rambo major props, Kristian Doolittle links with his NBA representation, live televised golf could be back in less than two months and more!

  • On Wednesday, the Cleveland Browns unveiled their new uniforms inspired by past generations of the franchise with a modern style. Each new look isn’t totally different from what the team was rocking over the past few years, but maintaining brand recognition is a good thing and I think the designers succeeded in that.
