A buddy of mine at work was doing a draft on break yesterday (1 year, ESPN thing) and he kept saying, "dude, I'm taking Hunt at pick 7, I've already made up my mind"

Well, I didn't have to try to talk him out of it because he went 1st.. First overall. Even in a one year scenario I think that's too soon.

Yeah, that's crazy. As much as I liked the way he looked, people that think he will do this again this season will be disappointed.

haha, dude is a die hard Panthers fan and usually one of three ways:
A) All panthers and hyped players
B) Following number by number fantasy draft books
C) Whatever someone tells him.

I'm sure he's thrilled now that he didn't take David Johnson #1 overall like most people. Lol... The fantasy Gods are very fickle!

I was as high on Hunt as anyone during the spring, but I never would have imagined a start as strong as this.


I'm not just talking about his stats either, he actually looks great out there.

Totally agree. He's the real deal imo, you would be hard-pressed to find many negatives in his game right now.

He runs with determination. Hes very hard to tackle in the open field. Not that he is so fast, he is just sturdy and strong. That was a good encore to week one...

And this (Hunt) folks, is why it's important to come down here for Senior Bowl week! Lol

Before he officially accepted his invitation to attend I didn't know much about him, but then I dug into his tape and got to see him up close and I was sold...and the "rest is history"

I own Ware/West, and drafted Hunt at 1.07 while thinking Ware would be the starter for at least the first half of the season, with Hunt getting some work. With the exception of a few players, you can't predict injuries. While I did feel that I was drafting a future bell cow, under no circumstances did I expect Hunt to get off to this kind of start.

Coogan, was he under the radar because of his smaller school status? He does look the part out there. I liked from early summer because he's compact and powerful for his size and very shifty.

His final stat line was nice - but it was saved by his long TD run. Before that, he did not look good and was averaging just over 2ypc.

Something to be mindful of moving forward if you own him.
