"A lot of guys can do good things in practice, but you have to go out and finish the rush. That's how you build your repertoire of moves."
Nicknamed "The Eastern Block" as a tribute to his homeland and an NCAA record-tying eight blocked field goals in 30 games at SMU, Hunt is a former World Junior champion in discus and shot put. That "freak of nature" strength, athleticism and untapped potential has been on display throughout the preseason.
"I was in the NFL for 13 years and I never saw a guy like him," SMU defensive line coach Bert Hill said last year. "Not with his abilities that he has right now, no. I didn't see a guy."
There will be times this season when Hunt will appear to be unblockable. There will also be times when it's obvious that he has been playing football for less than a half-decade.
