2007 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Tony Hunt, RB, Penn State

Hunt improved mightily in each of his four years at Penn State, and he was an absolute workhorse for the Nittany Lions as a senior. The 6-2, 230-pound running back amassed 1386 yards last year and found the endzone 11 times, while averaging five yards per carry. Hunt is a strong, powerful runner who works extremely hard for every yard he can get. With his game experience and physical prowess, Hunt could step right in for an NFL team and be valuable as a 3rd-down back and inside the red zone. He is also surprisingly adept at catching passes out of the backfield and the other thing going for Hunt is durability. The primary knock on him is his lack of speed. Hunt did not run the forty at the NFL Combine, and his best effort at Penn State's pro day was only a 4.65. As such, he has a hard time eluding defenders and an especially hard time breaking away if he gets by them initially. This is why Hunt ,most likely, will never be a star at the next level, but there's no reason why he can't be a solid contributor in a platoon backfield. Look for Hunt to get taken off the board in the third round of April's draft.
