I'm probably one of the few that would be pretty happy with Hunter in rd 1. I never wavered in taking him off of my first round grades. 6' 4" , legit 4.4 speed, and his agility tests were very good.. also a great vertical. It's not ALL about the numbers either... he's been productive too. That's the guy I want complementing Crabtree... but there are a few other 1st rounders I want more.
Of the top WR prospects in the draft, Hunter basically falls at the bottom of my list for several reasons
1-Not a natural hands catcher, in college he used his speed to get separation on any defensive back, at the next level he's going to have less room to operate and will be tested.
2-He's built like an NBA point guard. 6'4" and under 200 pounds is not good, its one reason I suspect why he so frequently went down after first contact
3-Lousy run blocker, a lot of the time he didn't even seem to try and half-ass it, just basically gave up.
