Player Overview

Hunt led the Boilermakers in rushing in 2013, then followed that up with 949 rushing yards as a senior on 5.5 yards per carry. He also provides versatility, leading Purdue with 48 receptions last season.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Awesome speed to eliminate pursuit angles and motor away from defenders. Nice job manipulating space to make guys miss, using lateral quickness and cut-and-go burst. Finishes with toughness and runs competitive. Reliable receiving option in the screen game, running some routes and showing soft hands.

WEAKNESSES: Vision and anticipation tend to run hot/cold, running into his blockers at times. Will dance too much at times and doesn't always have a consistent plan, late to recognize open lanes. Doesn't bring a power element to the field and lacks the pile-pushing strength to lower his pads and drive forward.
