I just hope this is the Justin Hunter that we'll see on the field. I'm guessing this was him before the knee injury.

It's a mix of all 3 of his seasons(well, if you can call his sophomore year a season, just played Montana, Cinci and like 2-3 plays vs Florida). He didn't lose any of his athletic ability after his injury. Just him trying to over compensate and I think playing a little scared caused him to drop some passes.

The more I think about it, the more I think Hunter is the perfect compliment to Britt.

and the more I think about it, the more I think the Wright pick was a waste.

This is a great read on Justin Hunter's role with us.

Justin Hunter may turn out to be a one trick pony. In many ways, Randy Moss had the same "problem". It turns out, though, that this one trick is arguably the most dangerous and valuable of them all at the receiver position. Even if Hunter is only targeted a handful of times a game, the vertical skill set commands respect from defensive coordinators. They can bring 6 man pressure, but that leaves either Britt or Hunter in single coverage on the edges. Each of them more than capable of dominating undersized corners on the way to the endzone. The possibility of getting vertical on each side of the field will force more two high looks, which results in better numbers in the box and a (theoretically) more productive running game.

Hunter isn't a one trick pony like most 6'4 speedy receivers. He's actually a very good route runner who has no problem with going over the middle for the tough catches, It's actually how he tore his ACL/MCL. One of his first catches of the year, despite his fear of getting hurt again, was a catch over the middle in traffic vs NC State, If I remember correctly.

Hunter is closer to the more complete, Calvin Johnson type of receiver than the one trick(even if, like that article said, that trick is incredible) pony that Moss was his entire career.

Kendall Wright? A wasted pick? Our sweet little KW? Dude really? Shocked
Perhaps you're thinking a little too much. Step outside and catch some fresh air. Smell the roses, listen to the birds sing, experience nature. Your thoughts betray you young padawan. Clear your mind, you must.

I didn't like the pick but that makes absolute no sense. Wright can play any WR spot and will thrive in the slot. He had a good rookie season and was our best WR last year. In today's NFL, you need more than 2 good WR's. Britt, Hunter, and Wright should work great together.

Didn't he tear his knee up on a comeback route against FL?

Yep. IIRC it was on the Vols sideline.

You could argue that Wright was a waste in the sense that we could have invested in another position, but I love him as a player. He is scrappy and has a good playing attitude. He is a baller and he has that never give up attitude. No matter how much we were down last year, he was giving it his all and I respect that.

I dont see how you think he was our best WR. I think he was our 3rd. (that includes a healthy Britt.)

His 9.8 yards per reception is very average. He was only one out 4 WRs in the league last year that averaged less than 10 yards a catch with at least 20 receptions.

I will say his stats are almost identical to Amendola although Amendola did it in 11ish games (was still hurt the last 3 games of the season he played)

Wright 64 rec 104 tar 626 yards 9.8 ypc 4 TDs 38 1st downs
Amendola 63 rec 101 tar 666 yards 10.6 ypc 3 TDs 38 1st downs

His YPA is so low because of how he was used on third downs. He led the NFL in third down conversions, if I remember correctly. Did at some point in the middle of the year, anyway. We never really hit him on deep passes or anything like that. He was always the guy we went to for the 6 or 7 yards we needed on 3rd.

I haven't seen the injury since the day it happened, but if I remember right, Hunter was in the slot, running a comeback, jumped to catch the ball, then hurt himself when landing.

My point is overall he's not just a guy you send down the sideline.

THis game is a good example of what he's willing to do and how good he is at it. And this is his first game back from the injury:
