    What he meant to say is that Hunter is that type of player. He does play a very similar style to AJ Green but Green's hands were unquestionable coming out and his body control/ability to adjust to the ball is unmatched.

    For sure. I was merely making talent comparisons between hunter and cp and the upside of each. Of course it would be dumb to already say we got a green or moss or that the vikes got a harvin

    I was just wanting some feedback on the guy. Wanted to know what type of talent we drafted.

    Pretty pleased with this year's draft.

    This was a stupid pick. Justin Hunter is tall and fast, but what did he do against good competition?? (143 yards and 3 TDs against Georgia State isn't anything special... and 'good competition' doesn't include Troy, Akron, or Missouri either.)

    Tenn v. Florida: 5 REC, 76 YDS, 0 TDS
    Tenn v. Alabama: 4 REC, 70 YDS, 0 TDs
    Tenn v. Georgia: 3 REC, 46 YDS, 0 TDS
    Tenn v. Miss St: 2 REC, 41 YDS, 0 TDS
    Tenn v. S. Carolina: 8 REC, 90 YDS, 0 TDS

    In other words, against good competition, Justin Hunter averages 4.4 REC, 64.6 YDS, and 0 TDS.

    No way those numbers are worth a high 2nd round pick... especially when we give up a 3rd rd pick in 2014 and a 7th rd pick in 2013. You know why we're not going to the playoffs this year? Draft picks like this.

    This draft was deep for WRs. We overpaid for a guy who never proved himself on the field.

    outside of UGA and Miss St those are pretty solid numbers coming from a team with another 1st round WR and a college team comparable to the Jets. Exactly what point were you trying to prove?

    What point am I trying to prove? That in the big games, the games against at a minimum solid defenses, Justin Hunter didn't do anything special. He's supposed to be a big play receiver, yet he can't get into the end zone against good competition. He's supposed to be a big play receiver, yet he can't get over 100 yards a game against good competition.

    I don't even think those are "pretty solid numbers"... at least give me a TD or two and I'll call them solid numbers.

    And the comparisons to AJ Green or Randy Moss are some of the dumbest things I've ever read. The proper comparison - with size, speed (almost), and measurables... combined with on-field performance... is Fred Gibson from Georgia (drafted in 2005). Remember how he fared in the NFL? Exactly.

    He's from VA though. I mean I know he went to college in the state but Nashville is not Knoxville.

    Also in his 1st year since an ACL tear. Just ask Kenny what happens to production the season after that surgery.

    Not a UT fan but it's Hunter an it ain't close.

    Patterson can't learn a playbook. He's a better athlete than hunter but Hunter is a better WR by far
