Peter King is one of the most respected NFL analysts in the business. He has consistently shown a great knowledge of the game and has been known to get many predictions right. King recently revealed his pick for the 2023 MVP, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Peter King Predicts Jalen Hurts Will Win The MVP In 2023
Hurts is one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL. His ability to extend plays with his legs and pick up short-yardage situations gives him great stats. The MVP award is all about stats and the narrative surrounding the player. Hurts should have the stats thanks to an elite offensive line and weapons like AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith. The narrative should be there as well. Hurts was not slated to be a star quarterback when he was taken in the second round. He has worked hard and is now one of the premier quarterbacks in the game.
Patrick Mahomes is always in the mix. His ability to take whatever collection of talent is on the field and make a top-ten offense is unprecedented. Other players to look out for would be Lamar Jackson as he looks to make a comeback after last year’s injuries. Justin Herbert could also be in line for the award after being awarded a big contract. New offensive coordinator Kellen Moore could bring his stats to new heights. Outside of the quarterback position, if either Justin Jefferson or Tyreek Hill breaks the receiving yards record, they could be in the conversation.
Peter King thinks it will be Jalen Hurts who lifts the MVP trophy in 2023. Fans in Philadelphia would be very happy if this happened as it would likely signal another Super Bowl run is in the making.
