Never said he was being pushed out the door he isn't a 3 down back, he is a change of pace back. In my opinion he doesn't have the size to be a 3 down back where Lattimore and Hyde are both around 6 foot 225 lbs.
The average starting back in the league is about 10 lbs. heavier, around 210. Not a huge difference especially considering Hunter's only 5'7". If Lesean McCoy, Jamaal Charles. C.J. Spiller, etc. can have success as the primary ball carrier I don't see why Hunter can't. Gore isn't exactly a bulldozer; he just follows his blockers and has great vision.

As of right now I still think Hunter has Gore's job.
My depth chart would look something like
I think so too. Going into training camp, I think Hunter is the best overall back on the team. That could change by opening day or in the season, but he is a good at everything the team asks the RB's to do.
