I thought Hunter was an intriguing talent coming out of Tenn. Haven't really followed his career much in the NFL. Hopefully Mann can get pull that production out of him.

It seems odd though, to sign a guy that is the same basic prototype to two other guys on the roster. Would have rather seen them grab a tough-guy #2 who fights for YAC.

I think Coby Hamilton can do better than Hunter in all things except deep speed. Hamilton defiantly can catch the ball better.

I think Hunter by far has a much higher ceiling than Hamilton. I think that Hunter has #2 WR potential. He needs to be in the right system and some coaching. He has the physical tools.

I love Cobi's heart and desire, but he can't touch Hunter's natural abilities and athleticism.

Really hoping Hunter hits it home with you guys. There possibly couldn't be a better place for him to strive in. Really loved him coming out. His tools are off the charts and I want to see Big Ben bombs to Hunter down the line. Good luck...

Hunter has hit his ceiling. Hamilton has just started.

I honestly think Hamilton is near his too.

Hahahahaha.

Jones' only chance is to go to Tenn. Otherwise he is flipping burgers this fall.

I see no cause for optimism on Hamilton's ceiling. Looks like just another guy to me.
