Hayden Hurst was selected first the 25th overall pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Ravens. The South Carolina alumni was the first tight-end taken in 2018. In his time with the Ravens, Hurst has not done much more than be a backup for Mark Andrews.
In his two years with Baltimore, Hurst caught 43 passes for 512 yards and three touchdowns. The tight-end is now being sent to the Falcons, who lost their starting tight-end to the Browns earlier today.
