I wonder if some young players like Hurd (and I’m not saying he did this) don’t get into the NFL and think “OK, I made it,” and take their foot off the gas precisely when they shouldn’t. They relax too much when they’re actually making the biggest athletic transition of their lives, rely on their raw talent to carry them instead of learning the skills to protect themselves, take it easier than they should on conditioning and flexibility, and they end up hurt and done before they can show their real potential, much less achieve it. It seems to be more common among WRs and DBs especially, at least to my eyes.
