Scott Kennedy Scouting Report:
Maurice Hurt is an aggressive blocker that plays right tackle for his Baldwin team. He maintains his blocks well and gets a good push. He has a good back pedal in pass protection from his tackle spot. Hurt saw some time at defensive tackle as a junior as well. He projects as an offensive guard on the college level. He is best in close quarters. He will need to get his pads lower than he's used to playing from his tackle spot, but that won't be a hard transition for him.
