2011 NFL Draft Profile: Kendall Hunter - Oklahoma State, RB

New, comment

Height: 5-7

Weight: 199lbs

PROS: Has good bulk for his frame despite being short. Eludes defenders well in the open field and is very shifty. Tough to bring down due to his natural leverage advantage. Shows good vision rushing with the football. Helped himself out at the Senior Bowl by showing excellent technique and work in blocking drills. Patient runner that lets his blocks set up, and when utilized can make plays out of the backfield as a receiver.

CONS: Will get knocked for his lack of height and classified as "small". While very productive, doesn’t break a lot of long runs and isn’t really a homerun threat. Likely limited to being a third down back and change of pace guy at the next level. Doesn’t offer much on the goal line. Despite setting up his blocks, he tends to dance too often and will need to work on getting upfield.
