2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Margus Hunt, DE, Southern Methodist

When considering raw athleticism and size, SMU Mustangs defensive lineman Margus Hunt may have the highest potential in the 2013 draft class. Hunt is a huge prospect with limited football experience that should hear his named called in the first two days of the draft.

Hunt was born in Estonia and will be 26 years old at the start of next season. He has only been playing football since his freshman year in 2009 and has a decorated background in track and field (shot put and discus).

Lots of hype entering senior year and struggled at times with defenses really keying on him. Needs to get better against the run by staying low with his pad level. Can be driven off the ball. When pass-rushing, he does a great job of hitting the gaps by contorting his body through tight spaces. Will regularly get into the backfield although he is not a strong finisher when given an opportunity to bring down the ball-carrier.

Elite talent at blocking kicks with his huge wingspan and height. Tremendous speed for a player his size (4.7 40-yard dash). At his best when he focus his pursuit downhill, extend his arms to take on blockers and disrupt the backfield.

Hunt projects as a second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
