Kareem Hunt NFL Draft Profile
Size: 5’11 208lbs
- Strong lower body
- Decent agility
- Decent hands
- Can get to the outside on zone runs
Analysis: Kareem Hunt has a compact body with broad frame and muscular legs. Above-average agility for his size. Runs with good vision and overall instincts as he presses the line before making back-side cuts. He runs with solid knee bend and forward lean. Adequate pass catcher for screens and check-downs. Hunt finished third in the nation with 163 rush yards per game and ended the year with a 271-yard, five-touchdown effort against Arkansas State in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
- Cuts off runs too early
- Play speed
- Too dancy
- Will have trouble bursting through second level
Analysis: Kareem Hunt can evade the first wave of defenders with his vision and adequate agility, but he doesn’t possess the speed to outrun defenders to the second level of NFL defenses. He has marginal downhill burst through line of scrimmage. Inconsistent inside runner. Gets too cute in the hole when run comes to a close. Looks to spin rather than finish with authority. He could struggle to find big chunk runs on next level, especially if he doesn’t trust his vision.
