  • From what I've seen (or not seen), his potential is unemployed.

  • If Solari is going to more a power ZBS scheme then I doubt Hunt makes the team. He has always been just a fringe player to this point. So a power scheme just doesn't seem to fit for him IMO.

  • Wasn't he the highest rated NFL offensive lineman in the 2017 preseason? I'd be surprised if he wasn't viewed as a priority backup since Pocic will probably be starting at guard.

    If Pocic managed to secure the LG position, we probably need as backup center. Just not sure if he is nfl starting caliber center.

  • He looks like a midget for an NFL offensive lineman.

  • It’s a make or break preseason for him. IMHO the odds are against him.

  • At 6' 2" and 295 lbs, I was ranked as the No. 11 center available in the 1998 NFL Draft. Described as somewhat of an overachiever, I worked to make myself better, but as an undersized guy I was also labeled as having trouble matching up against power NTs that were said to overwhelm me. I went undrafted, but the Baltimore Ravens signed me as a free agent on April 27, 1998, only to waive me on June 12, 1998. I then signed with the Indianapolis Colts, with whom I played 13 seasons, won Super Bowl XLI over the Chicago Bears and was selected to four All-Pro teams and five Pro Bowls. In my final NFL season, I made my sixth Pro Bowl as a member of the Green Bay Packers.

    I would trade Hunt to his father..Tom Cable

  • Jeff Saturday may very well represent a ceiling for gritty undersized overachieving centers. Try out camp addition Marcus Henry is another gritty undersized overachieving candidate at center. If they run short of roster spots for linemen, Marcus Henry could emerge as a retention option for the practice squad.

  • Kid held up well. Smarts and savvy sometimes is worth more than size. Britt may have a bit of a Wally Pip complex this week. Better heal up quick, son.

    i would like to see couple more games with Hunt as center. Brown - Sweezy - Hunt - Fluker - Ifedi this is a vet savy line.

  • Hunt played great, but IMO his ceiling is still no more than a quality backup.

    Which btw is not diminishing his role on the team, having a good backup at center is invaluable because it means you can keep your starters at their spots and not have to move guys around weakening two positions instead of just one.

  • Hunt reminds me a lot of Tobeck. Supposedly undersized, not strong enough, etc. Just gets the job done with no flash.

  • Knock on him was size, he has added weight and is now a solid 300 pounds which is still small compared to the 325 and 340 guys around him, but he is also stronger, he is however the most football smart and intelligent guy they have from what I have heard.

    Reminds me of the “young bull vs old bull” story.

    Young bull and old bull standing on a hilltop looking at the cows.
    Young bull says “let’s run down there and get us one of them cows”
    Old bull says “let’s WALK down and get them ALL”

    Brains over braun every day.

    I can only appreciate that now that I’m an “old bull” but it’s a “for reals” thing.

    That makes him the same size as this guy, who was also constantly told he was “undersized.”
