New Free Agency Winners and Losers

Tony Hunt RB 6'1 233 Penn St. 4.68

By: Robert Davis

Hunt originally committed to USC, but later decided to sign with the Nittany Lions, and it ended up being the right decision for him. After only spot duty as a freshman, he landed the starting job as a sophomore, and finished the year with 777 yards on the ground with seven touchdowns, and added 334 yards on 39 catches out of the backfield. As a junior, Hunt topped the 1,000 yard mark, going for 1,047 yards and six touchdowns on the ground, while earning 2nd Team All Big 10 honors. He had his best year as a senior, rushing for a career high 1,228 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground, and adding 252 yards and three touchdowns on 26 catches.

Tony Hunt is an excellent interior runner. He has great size, and runs with a great deal of power. He picks up a lot of yardage after contact because he refuses to go down. He uses his size to his advantage and lowers his shoulder, always fighting for extra yardage. Hunt also has the speed to hit the corner and break off big runs from time to time. He also has been a factor as a receiver, and shows the ability to catch the ball and make plays in the passing game.

The biggest knock on Huntís game is that he is not a game breaker. He shows solid speed once he gets going and if he runs in a straight line, but once he cuts, he does not accelerate quick enough again to be a true playmaking threat. He is not going to be making too many people miss in the NFL.

Tony Hunt may never be a superstar, but he is a player that could surprise at the next level. For a team that wants to add a power element to their rushing attack, he is the ideal fit. He has the talent to be a starter on the right team, and could be an excellent power option for a team utilizing a two back system.
