Would've been my view a few weeks ago, but I wouldn't have thought it to be a huge reach (always figured he'd go in the 2nd).

Hunt's combine was just ridiculous though, everything from the running, jumping, lifting, and positional drills. His size is ridiculous as well. I wouldn't be shocked to see him go relatively early, like in the middle of the 1st round.

He's a freak in the mold of J.J. Watt


I can understand what you're saying, and Hunt might end up being a stud like you think. However, I think that for every mid level prospect, who has had their stock skyrocket due to blowing up at the combine, who actually lives up to their freakish athletic potential, there are half a dozen other mid level prospects who have their stock skyrocket and don't live up to expectations.

Just don't think we are one of the teams in a position to take chances on a guy like that.

I would have taken Warford over Hunt, but I'm a pretty big Warford fan and have mocked him to us in both of my mocks.

i like warford myself but the oline is in much better shape than DE's and this was our last substantial piece to improve at an area.

Both areas are a position of need, so I'd rather get the better prospect. That's just my drafting philosophy.

Just realized Nala was still available. I think I would have preferred him over both.

It was a tough decision, Warford was also my other favorite. In real life, I dont know if I could've pulled the trigger on Hunt.

Much easier to make the call for play.

Very true, and like Phreak said earlier, if it works out, we look like geniuses, if not, no one will care.

Eh, I prefer to not trade with division rivals. But, if he has a friendly contract, I guess it's worth a look. Can he play outside though? And, how much better than Palmer and McRath is he?

He played in the 4-3 during his first few years in Green Bay and shined... Was by far our best LB during the 4-3 years when we were rolling with Hawk, Barnett and Poppinga...

He'd cost you about 5.3m

Sounded great all the way up to 5.3 million Laughing

What would it cost to trade for him?

5.3m...

Hence the fact we're only looking for a 5th Laughing . We're actually going to owe 4.8m in dead money tho.
