Despite not winning the Big Ten Smith-Brown Defensive Lineman of the Year last week, Maurice Hurst was given high praise Wednesday for his outstanding season.

According to the Pro Football Focus system, Hurst graded out higher than any college football player this season at 96.9.

We caught with analyst Josh Liskiewitz from Pro Football Focus earlier this week to ask him about Hurst and why he graded so high.

"He graded so well because he consistently destroyed blockers, both against the run and pass. He had 45 total QB pressures, the 2nd most for a defensive tackle this year was 36,” Liskiewitz said.
