2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Justin Hunter
Ever since his freshman year, Tennessee‘s Justin Hunter has shown plenty of potential that he would one day play at the NFL level and it’s no surprise to see him considered to be one of the top wide receivers from this year’s draft class. Tavon Austin may be the first wide receiver taken in the 2013 NFL Draft, but there’s every reason in the world to believe Hunter has the potential to be right up there with him and could even have an advantage on him in certain areas.
Not only does he have an advantage over most defenders with his height at 6-4, but Hunter has blazing speed as well–which makes it difficult for just about any opponent to defend. Just look at the numbers Hunter posted as a junior with the Volunteers and it’s obvious the potential is there for him to succeed at the NFL level, but he still needs to work on his frame and hands if that’s going to happen.
Still, every player making the adjustment to the pros will always have certain areas in need of improvement and there’s no reason why teams shouldn’t be able to look past this when it comes to Hunter. Who knows–maybe Hunter has the perfect size to develop into one of the league’s next effective wide receivers–but it’s still way too early to tell.
Let’s see which team he ends up on firs and then start talking about the type of impact he’s going to have as a rookie in 2013.
