Default Tony Hunt or Michael Bush

I think everyone believes the Steelers will be looking to add a "big" back in the 2nd or 3rd round in this years draft. Wanted to get thoughts on Tony Hunt vs Michael Bush. I think both will be available in 2nd and possibly 3rd round.

Stats:
Tony Hunt : 6'2" 230lb 1386yds and 5yd avg in 06
Michael Bush : 6'2" 247lb 1143yds and 5.6yd avg in 05 (injured in 06)

My pick would be Tony Hunt but my friends are all in the Michael Bush camp.

I like Tony Hunt because he played behind a mediocre offensive line with a poor passing game against stiffer competition. He reminds me a bit of Larry Johnson that he runs hard, breaks tackles and never stops driving forward. (PSU fan so yes I am biased)

Hard to fairly judge Michael Bush after injury in 06 but that alone makes me think Hunt is the better pick.

Anyone else think Hunt is the better back for Steelers?

I am more familiar with Micheal Bush, Big back with quickness, but
Tony Hunt really impressive also. I would say whoever is still available in 2nd round, both would make a good 1-2 combination with Willie Parker.

My sentiments exactly LLT. (Regarding Bush) The news of his surgery has perhaps all but wiped him off of our 'board' IMO. And though i like what Hunt may be able to bring to the table as far as our 'ball control' ground game,.....i wouldn't take him or any other 'second tier' backs any earlier than the 3rd round. (more than likely the 4th)

A few questions:

Who is the better blocking back?
Who has better hands?
Who has the higher football IQ?

An NFL back MUST be able to pick up the blitz and be able to block, as well as catch the ball out of the backfield.
