NFL Draft Scouting Report: Darrell Hunter

Posted Nov 13, 2005

Darrell Hunter\CB\Miami-Oh

Full Name: Darrell Hunter         School: Miami-Oh

Ht: 5-11.5    Wt: 211     40: 4.45    Yr: 4Sr

Pos: Outstanding athlete with terrific size\speed numbers. Strong at the point, physical throughout routes and runs with opponents anywhere on the field. Fluid backpedaling in reverse, flips his hips and loses nothing in transition. Works well with safeties and displays a burst of closing speed. Gets vertical and adjusts to defend the throw in mid-air.

Neg: Not instinctive, slow locating the pass and lacks top ball skills. Not physical in run defense and does not play to his size. Does a lot of face guarding, loses a sense of where he is on the field and does not display much timing.

Analysis: Flashing skill on occasion, Hunter physically grades out as a top 45 pick. Yet his play on film leaves a lot to be desired and will cause him to fall to the middle rounds next April. Needs a lot of work and patience yet his natural abilities make him worth serious consideration starting in round four.
