This guy is one of the more skillfully polished receivers in the draft. He has great hands, body control, and has good speed. Good change of direction, and on field awareness. He has great height for a WR but does need to add weight to his frame. In a year or two this kid could be a beast. I'm not sold on Keenan Allen or Terrence Williams...but I like this kid and I think we can grab him in the second round. Here's a link to a highlight video....thoughts?

Way too fugging skinny. Like dangerously skinny.

Lost all of his speed after the surgery. I use to be a huge justin hunter fan but now I want nothin to do with him.

Look at his teammate Cordarrelle Patterson. He will be the best receiver from this class.

Hunter is one among several very average WR prospects projected to go in the late 1st/early 2nd round. The only WR's I feel are worth a 1st round pick are Cordarrelle Patterson and Terrance Williams.

Hunter is a beast who had a bad year he didn't lose his speed and if we picked him up I would be perfectly fine with that

Have you seen tape from his sophomore year? Literally night and day difference between his speed then and now.

If he's in the second round, maybe I'll consider it.

The crop of WR this year look very pedestrian to me. I just don't see any of these guys having an impact that would justify the 14th pick. We already have a stable full of WR with "potential" (Gettis, Lafell, Pilares, Adams, Murphy) and I dont think it wise to add another one into the mix.

in Hunter defense, he was coming back off the acl injury so he had to get the confidence back from the injury.yes it was like night and day before and after the tear, but as the season went on he begin to get that speed back and he even started to make moves like he had confidence in the knee. the highlight video showed that, but he would have to work on being physical and making contested catches.if we dont go WR in the 1st, and he is sitting there in the 2nd,i wouldnt mind taking him.

LaFell's a pretty established guy who should be on the field. After that, though...Gettis might not be the same after surgery, Pilares hasn't shown anything at all as a route-runner yet, Adams was always iffy as a receiver and has his obvious issues, and Murphy looks like good depth, but not much else. Which of those guys looks like the guy to work with Cam for the rest of his career?

I know he's skinny. But he's 6'3 and if he can get into an NFL weight room for two years he could be a steal.

I agree with this being a weak WR class. That's why I"m not interested in investing our 1st round pick in a WR who wouldn't be going in the 1st in other years.

I agree. This guys does need to get stronger and more physical, and he will. But he's a great route runner and his speed will come back. I like him more then the other 2nd round projections. I'm pretty sure if he stayed his senior year he'd be going round 1.

Don't they have weight rooms at Tennessee? Using that same logic we should have just put Otah on Jenny Craig. Problem solved.

I don't think any of them are. At the same time, I also don't think we should use the 14th pick so we can add Hunter's name to the list.

DeAndre Hopkins will be the best WR from this class. I know it would be a reach with our 1st round pick, but I would love to have Nuke be the heir apparent to Smitty.
