    This is true. But I think the reason Jones got so many people salivating at the combine was because of how dominant he was in college. Julio was absolutely unstoppable in the toughest conference and on a team that rarely wanted to throw the ball and had 2 first round pick RBs, That's incredibly impressive. The only DB that could even hang with Julio was Patrick Peterson and he went #5 overall. To watch a guy you know is that good then destroy the combine and provide hard data is cause for much jock riding in the football world. Hunter was good in the SEC but showed no where near the domination Julio did. Flashy recivers blow up the combine every year and then become irrelevant. Hunter is the ral deal though.

    Julio Jones benched pressed 225 17 times. I bet Hunter cant even get it 5 times!

    Woods just doesn't do anything for me when I watch him play.

    He seems like the type that'll be a solid player, but that's about it.

    Hunter looks like the type that could be a super star. Definitely worth the gamble, and I fully expect him to be better than Woods, if nothing else.

    He still is gonna be asked to block a lot if he plays in our system! That is if he wants to be an every down player!

    Some of the best WRs in the NFL are weak. I'm not really worried about how well our deep-threat WR blocks when we have an entire offense full of run blockers.

    Wrong on the route running, Hunter is a better route runner coming out. Julio is def more physical but that does not mean Hunter can not become that. They both struggle with drops which is the one thing that concerns me.

    Justin Hunter reminds me a lot of Roy Williams unfortunately!
