  • 6-8, 278 and ran unofficial an unofficial 4.53 and followed it up with a 4.6. Whoa.

  • He's a physical marvel. That said, I just don't think he's a very good football player. Had moments of brilliance, but far too much underwhelming play for a guy who is physically superior (and older) than his competition. Would hate him in R1, intrigued in R2.

    You are right though, an absolutely bananas combine performance.

  • If Al Davis was alive he'd be going #3 overall

  • Big boy can move. I would still pass though as he needs a lot of work still.

  • Aaron Curry was a physical specimen too. Just sayin'.

    Say no to Hunt. I think he has bust written all over him.

    But yes, that 40 time is freakish!

  • I would take a flyer on him if he fell to the 4th round. If he doesn't develop as a DE then give him a try at TE, which is what the Titans did with his teammate a year ago. Taylor Thompson was a 6-6 280 lbs DE at SMU and the Titans drafted him as a TE.

  • If there is a JPP this year, I think it's Hunt, not Ansah. Very good athlete that has to learn everything from scratch. Not saying I'd draft him high (Hunt is a 5th or 6th rounder for me), but I think he'd be an exciting player to follow, kind of like when we picked up Jordan Kent a few years ago.

  • Yea, this is exactly the kind of guy who i would not draft in the top 3 rounds. I want football players, not athletes. If he falls late into the draft where you can more easily afford a project then i'd be all for it.

  • Maybe he can put all that power and force into punting or kicking?

  • He's a physical freak as a pure athlete, but raw as raw can be as a football player.

    Absolutely true, but hes intriguing as a later round prospect.

    He is. And we have some extra picks to play with.

  • Pretty amazing, but I think he lacks a lot of the necessary football instincts we'd require for a first round pick. I'd take him in the third, though.

    What stats would be have put up if he were playing for big time school with ANY help at all?

    These guys now in SEC benefit from help on either side

    And been playing for only 4 years...from Estonia or something remote?

    Shit..SMU?

  • 17 blocked punt or fg?

    Ya know what taking 3 points of the board twice a year can do? Average margin of losses last year for us was what?

    He also got the SMU schedule facing the likes of Rice, Tulsa, UCF, Southern Miss, Houston, and Tulane. He didn't have the help an SEC team would have given him, but against that competition he shouldn't have needed it.

    Honestly though. Remember when he took Heyward Bey 8th overall? Lol Most people had a 3rd round grade on Heyward-Bey

  • Those measurables are all very impressive for sure ... and I might certainly think about the Hawks to take a flier on him if he's still around in the 3rd Round. BUT, I also say there is some caution with this guy as well. I don't know how many of you caught Rob Rang's report on him from the Senior Bowl ... but it was not good. According to him there were just far too many times that Hunt looked real average to basically underwhelming out there. If Pete and Dan Quinn could get their hands on him -- work with him -- they might have something there in a couple of years. Any higher than that though and I'd have to say pass.
