Draft Analysis:

Analysis

Strengths

Cranks motor and goes. Uses arm-over move as pet move to gain an advantage. Pursues hard down the line of scrimmage. Has sufficient play strength and can hold the point of attack when single-blocked. Gap sound. Considered very coachable and dedicated to team.

Weaknesses

Sawed-off frame leaves him vulnerable to being washed out against NFL running game. Doesn't have the feet or upper-body flexibility to live in gaps. Lacks ideal length to be full-time two-gapper. No perfect scheme fit for him. Average skill set and makes most of his plays off of effort. Very little pass-rush potential in the pros.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Sources Tell Us

"If you put Chucky's skill set on a bigger man, then you've got a draftable player. I hear the media pump up Chucky, but the scouts I see on the road aren't as high on him." -- NFC North regional scout

Bottom Line

Hunter used plus effort as his calling card and was well-coached at TCU along the way. With his short stature, lack of pass-rush production and lack of great burst off the snap, Hunter could find himself as an NFL backup who might have to make his living stopping the run.
