At the same time, I'm not ready to say he's a lock for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The hard-hitting safety is undersized but a favorite among many in the draft analyst community. But both teams could solidify needs. He couldn't wait to put the worst season of his career behind him. "This is an important draft for us". Hunt was impressive at the Senior Bowl and is poised to contribute right away for whoever selects him, whether it be on Day 2 or 3 of the draft.
