I was hoping much of the weight gains could be to the legs but I don't know how easy that will be. Hunter does have good sized legs though, and MJD definitely has bigger "guns" too so who knows.
Its all body structure and some guys don't have it. Unless he hits the leg press, squats, lunges, and the wheel of pain VERY hard I don't think he would have legs like that.
The only guy that has that look to me is Ray Rice, short but super thick in the legs. Hunter is well built but his top matches the bottom, you want more of a 60/40 split in size. Hunter is well defined but doesn't have the bulk in the legs. Here is a pic of Hunter, strong but cut, not thick bulk. Below him is Ray Rice.
Rice is bigger by about 1 inch but has almost 13lbs on Hunter. Rice is older by about 1.5 years if I remember correctly. Although Rice has been in the league longer he went into the combine lighter then Hunter...almost 5lbs. Although an NFL regiment can add muscle I do attribute it to Rice's frame and the ability to add bulk to his legs. Usually a good indicator is the size of a players butt...bigger butt goes hand in hand (no pun) with thick legs...the tree trunks need something to connect to.
Rice looks pretty proportional to me from that picture(closeup on Hunters thighs and I think you'd have a similar picture lol), I think if you get Hunter to 208 it'll be similar to Rice@ 112 with the additional inch in height.
