Total body-catcher, doesn't run block, goes down at first contact......you like him because he's big and fast....so is Chaz Schilens.
Unlike you I don't care how big or fast a WR is, NFL draft history is filled with the remains of big fast and tall WR's that were utter busts at the next level.
I look at their overall skills as a WR, abilities, the quality of their hands, route-running, how they catch the ball..etc. Hunter is tall but lanky, fast but a sloppy route runner, cheats by using his body to make plays, in the NFL that simply won't work.
He could do well in the NFL, but he's got a lot of work to do on the fundamentals of being a receiver, his athleticism, just like for many other college studs, won't be enough by itself to carry him in the NFL. He needs to add weight, he needs to utilize his hands to snatch the ball, not allow passes to get into his body, he needs to work on his concentration, not drop so many passes, improve his route-running...etc.....he's a work in progress, just as Patterson is.
Justin Hunter-WR-Tennessse-6'4", 196
Kendall Hunter-PG-Phoenix Suns-6'4", 196
Only one of these is going to get tackled and driven into the ground on a regular basis.
That's a problem.
