Hunter Cantwell, QB, Louisville

Hunter Cantwell spent most of his collegiate career sitting behind Brian Brohm on Louisville's depth chart. In 2005, 2006 and 2007 he made just four starts and was pretty much limited to mop up duty. As a freshman he started against Virginia Tech in the Gator Bowl. The team lost, but Cantwell threw for 216 yards and three touchdowns. As a sophomore he kept improving and tossed for 340 yards and three touchdowns against Middle Tennessee State. It was performances like the one against MTSU that made Cantwell a very well known back-up quarterback. In 2008 Cantwell got the opportunity to show his stuff. However, through five games, Cantwell is looking more like a freshman than a senior. He is averaging just 219 passing yards per contest and has thrown as many interceptions as touchdowns. This is not the same Cardinals offense that dominated the Big East just a couple of years ago, but Cantwell still has some decent weapons to work with. Unless his senior season gets better, Cantwell will be a risky pick for any NFL team. He has all the physical tools, but he simply needs more experience. If something does not click before the end of the season, it will be very difficult to warrant a high draft pick on a player who performed ineffectively and has just one year of experience under his belt.
