The Philadelphia Eagles have been stingy in their praise of second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts through much of the offseason, but new head coach Nick Sirianni is finally giving the signal-caller some props.

Not long after Sirianni suggested that Hurts would be entrenched in a QB competition with none other than Joe Flacco, the coach struck quite a different tone following the young field general’s showing throughout organized team activities, per NJ.com’s Chris Franklin:

“He is a relentless worker. […] I just saw him come in and take command of the offense and was on it. When you asked him a question, he’s on it. […] He just has a really compact throwing motion where he can get it out with ease. He’s super athletic and [can] throw on the run while moving and reading the defense. I was really pleased with a lot of things that he did.”
