The Philadelphia Eagles surprisingly selected Jalen Hurts with the No. 53 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and it's been revealed what number he'll wear in the NFL. Just a couple of weeks after being drafted, it's official that Hurts will wear No. 2 in Philadelphia, via Twitter.

Of course, Hurts began his collegiate career at Alabama, in hopes he could end the narrative of Crimson Tide quarterbacks not having success in the NFL. While he was at Alabama, Hurts wore the No. 2 jersey, as he combined for 4,861 yards, 40 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in his first two seasons.

Then, in his junior season, he was benched in favor of Tua Tagovailoa — who would be taken with the No. 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. As a result of being benched, Hurts entered the transfer portal and chose to end his collegiate career at Oklahoma.

Once he arrived in Oklahoma, Hurts decided to wear the No. 1 jersey since CeeDee Lamb already had No. 2 taken. In his lone season with the Sooners, Hurts threw for 3,851 yards, 32 touchdowns, and eight interceptions.

Now, with the Eagles, Hurts is going back to his days at Alabama and is going to be wearing No. 2 again. Throughout Philadelphia's history, the No. 2 jersey has typically been worn by kickers and punters.

Most notably, David Akers wore No. 2 with the Eagles from 1999-2010. On the other hand, Matt Barkley is the most recent offensive player to wear the No. 2 jersey from 2013-2014. With that being said, the Eagles hope Hurts can have a more successful career in Philadelphia than Barkley did.
