I realize Hunter has the ACL concern, but that would be the only reason we would have a shot at him. With no health concerns, he is a top 5-7 pick like AJ Green and Julio Jones. I have not been real big on us needing another wide receiver with Posey, Jean and Martin in the fold, but this guy is too good to pass on.
I watched Hunt in his bowl game. He looked like a less flexible, less refined JJ Watt to me. He's also 25 years old already and barely started playing football when he was 21 or 22. Just like Hunter above though, these are the reasons he would be available to us. If he was a 21 year old that was more refined, he would be a top 15 pick. If you could bring him in and get him some more polish to his game from NFL coaching, you could have a monster on your hands.
Those would be my first and second round picks. After that, everything else would be gravy.
SMU played Fresno St., not exactly a juggernaut of college football talent, and from reading another thread the guy that Hunt beat so badly was a true freshman. Just things to take into account when evaluating Hunt's bowl game performance. I'm not saying that Hunt isn't worth looking at but I wouldn't touch him any earlier than the 4th round, as I think we've got bigger holes to fill than backup DE. Now if we evaluate him well and are able to trade up for an additional pick in the 3rd, after filling NT, WR, O-line, and ILB then I might take a shot at him in the 3rd.
