Default Justin Hunter WR - Tenn



Does anybody know anything on this kid? He sort of reminds me of a young Randy Moss without the BS.

could turn into a good NFL WR. I know I've seen his name on this board quite a bit and some people are pretty high on him. I think he would be more of a developmental player just from reading about him.

I don't follow college football so other than watching his highlights and reading the analysis on him I can't really say.

I really like this kid. I think he has a huge upside. He may be the better pro over his more highly regarded teammate Cordarrelle Patterson.

I love Justin Hunter, the knock against him is that he tore his ACL during the 2011 season so he poses a bit of a medical risk.

Scouts will say his hands are inconsistent at times and that he doesn't use his height to his advantage at times ( getting the ball at his highest point ) but that's all nik picking.

I like the kid, should be a good nfl player. The biggest question you need to think about when looking at wr is will they fit in Haley's system.

And yet it was Hunter who was the bigger recruit and highly thought of until this past season. Maybe he falls to us in 2nd? I wasn't impressed with Cordarrelle at combine but scouts love him. We can afford more of a project that could come in for three wides with Brown and Sanders. Why not?

Hunter is smooth and natural. His speed is deceptive because of this. Patterson is extememly athletic and fast, but robotic at times. He will get better, but has to smooth out his game. Both of these guys are big, fast and can jump. Before the knee injury, Hunter had the much better hands, and he's a more natural hands catcher to my eye.

Hines played his entire career with a non-functioning ACL..... what we need to know on this kid is if the knee is stable.

Wink Re: Justin Hunter WR - Tenn

Ill be honest...I think Justin Hunter is the best WR in this draft. He is the one guy I want more than Vacarro/Elam.

I liked the video, seems like an interesting prospect. I also liked the quarterback, seemed like he has a big arm and can make some good throws.
