Solid Running Back, but if we're gonna draft one in the third round, I'd take Marlon Mack...

OVERVIEW
Hunt's 2015 season was one to forget. He was suspended the first two games for violating team rules, then struggled with hamstring and ankle injuries during the course of the year. Somehow, he still covered 973 yards and scored 12 times on 178 carries in just nine games, garnering second-team All-MAC notice. Expectations were high going into that season, however, because he led the MAC in rushing as a sophomore in 2014 (1,631) despite missing three games with an ankle injury. 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. The first-team All-State pick from Ohio (2,685 yards, 44 TD as a senior) received a fair amount of playing time as a freshman, accumulating 866 yards and six scores. Hunt finished his Toledo career on a high note, garnering first-team All-MAC honors for the second time, rushing for 1,475 yards and ten touchdowns while also racking up 41 catches for 403 yards and a score (all receiving numbers bettered his totals in his first three seasons combined.)

ANALYSIS
STRENGTHS Compact body with broad frame and muscular legs. Above-average agility for his size. Has hips and feet to elude darting defenders in backfield. Uses effective jump-cut to avoid the sludge and shift to the open gap. Runs with good vision and overall instincts. Presses the line before making back-side cuts. Conforms his run to changing space within running lane. Spin moves are effective against first-look tacklers on second level. Suddenly shifts to bounce an inside run to the perimeter. Strings moves together on outside zone plays. Runs with knee bend and forward lean. Adequate pass catcher for screens and check-downs.
WEAKNESSES Can elude initial tackle but struggles to accelerate after redirecting his feet. Average explosion traits. 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. Needs to run to his size more consistently. Premature in breaking off play-side runs in outside zone. He might not trust his play speed. Slight gear-down into downhill cuts. Could struggle to find chunk runs on next level. Chip "leans" rather than chip blocks allowing open rib shots to go unclaimed.

NFL COMPARISON Olandis Gary

BOTTOM LINE Big back with plus vision and enough elusiveness to make the first defender miss. Feel for the rushing lane helps him choose the correct path between the tackles but lacks the burst to turn the 4-yard run into 14. Zone-scheme runner with serviceable hands out of the backfield. Adequate in most areas and has talent to become a backup that can step in and handle a bigger load if needed

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Looks like Payton will be drafting all of them then.

That's sadly funny. I keep hoping the newer blood in the FO and on the coaching staff will keep that to a minimum.

T.J. Logan - RB - Tar Heels

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that North Carolina RB T.J. Logan "looked terrific in ball-carrying drills" during pro day on Tuesday.
Pauline writes that Logan "display[ed] quick feet and a smooth change of direction, adding that the 5-foot-9, 196-pounder "also caught the ball very well." During Combine drills, Logan came away with the fastest 40-yard dash time of any running back in Indianapolis, acing the sprint in 4.37 seconds. ESPN's Mel Kiper believes that this strong work might boost him all the way to a Day 2 selection. The analyst viewed him as a late Day 3 pick prior to the Combine.

Josh Jones - DB - Wolfpack

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that NC State DB Josh Jones "looked terrific" during drills on pro day.
Pauline is sky-high on Jones as one of the sleeper corners in the draft, writing earlier in March that "it wouldn't be crazy for some team to take him late in the first round." One team that would fit that bill of an intrigued late-round player would be the Patriots, whom Pauline notes "met extensively" with Jones the night before his pro day. The 6-foot-1, 220-pounder also met with the Chargers.
