Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about KAREEM HUNT: Toledo, 5104 216 4.61. Three-year starter from Willoughby, OH. Two-time first-team All- MAC back who leaves Toledo as the program’s all-time leading rusher. Over his career he rushed for 4945 yards averaging 6.3 yards per carry and 112.4 yards per game. Explosive athlete who long jumped 23' 3" and high jumped 6' 8". Two jack hammers for thighs. Good frame and flexibility for the position. Runs with a low pad level. Can swivel his hips back and forth while staying square to the line of scrimmage. Plays with violence and patience. Always going forward. Excellent vision. Breaks tackles routinely on almost every play with leg drive. Protects the ball in Toledo’s quick tempo spread offense. Instant acceleration. Weaves through traffic after squeezing through the smallest of holes. Can run you over or make you miss. Can beat the first defender. Good cutting ability. The zone runner follows his blockers to get through the cracks of a defense. He cuts off the heels of his linemen. Has been known to run over corners in space and keep his balance. The ex-Rocket doesn’t slow down. Always moving his feet as a receiver or blocker. Has had 782 carries in his career. Hunt has had a bit of an up and down career that included leading the MAC in rushing despite missing three games in 2014, missing time with nagging injuries and a suspension in 2015, and back to the top of the conference’s rushing ranks in 2016. What is most attractive about Hunt is the ability to change his running style based on situations at the drop of a hat; all of which are at a very high level. With his recent 15 pound weight loss his athletic ability has taken a step up. 2016 stats: 1475 yds, 5.6 ypc, 10 TD, 41 rec, 403 yds, 9.8 ypr, 1 TD. OSR:16/30. Third/fourth round. (A-31 1/8, H-9 3/4, BP-DNP, SS-DNP).
