Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Looks more like a tight end than a traditional pass rusher, with broad shoulders, very long arms and plenty of room for additional muscle. His exciting combination of length, balance, awareness and agility helped him make plays against the run and pass.

Hunter's quickness allows him to dip under would-be blockers, beating them inside rather than relying on his length and strength to string run plays out wide, as tackles expect. He's aggressive and physical, showing a willingness to sacrifice his body uncommon for edge players with his body type.

Shows surprising strength at the point of attack and is passionate in pursuit. Gets his hands up in the passing lanes when he can't get to the quarterback and knocks down passes. He's aggressive and physical and shows a willingness to sacrifice his body uncommon for edge players with his body type.

WEAKNESSES: One potential red-flag is Hunter's inconsistent get-off. Too often he is the last of LSU's rushers off the ball. Hunter's length makes him susceptible to the run, though he does show surprising strength at the point of attack and is passionate in pursuit.

COMPARES TO: Barkevious Mingo, Cleveland Browns - Like his former teammate, Hunter is much more dangerous off the edge than his rather pedestrian sack numbers would indicate.

Player Overview

Possessing a lanky frame and explosive get-off that has drawn comparisons to Barkevious Mingo, the man he replaced at right defensive end in defensive coordinator John Chavis' scheme, Hunter emerged as LSU's most dangerous pass rusher last season, though his statistics don't necessarily reflect it.

Hunter didn't emerge as a starter for the Tigers until they began their SEC schedule (fourth game) but in 10 starts he recorded 57 tackles, eight tackles for loss and three sacks. He could be just scratching the surface of his production.

Hunter's first name is pronounced "Duh-neal."
