  • Margus Hunt

    Does anybody else love this guy for the Giants in the 2nd round if available and if the Giants don;t select a DL in the 1st round? I think is size, speed, and ability to knock down balls is too much to pass up. I think he has a HUGE upside and can be an absolute beast with the Giants. He also doesn't seem to be getting much attention regarding him and the Giants. Am I crazy?

    His age scares me. I know it may be petty but it's something I can't get around.

      I like his size and his ability to play multiple d-line spots.. But his age is a factor, being 26 already

        I dont think he will amke it to their 2nd round pick. He will be 26 before training camp which hurts. Lack of production against players he is physically far superior over being 4 years older is a worry

          Ya, but age really only matters because u have injurys and wear and tear from playing the game for yrs, which he has not done.. He started playing football later in life, and is fairly fresh 26yr old...

              Bears beat writer Dan Pompei believes SMU DE Margus Hunt is the type of player Packers GM Ted Thompson likes.Pompei slotted Hunt to the Packers with pick No. 26. If we are expected to believe the buzz from league insiders, Hunt is locked into the first-round. His athletic upside warrants the pick, but his tape as an end in a three man front does not. Teams will like his special teams ability, however.Source: Chicago Tribune Apr 14 - 1:51 PM
              I think Hunt as a lock for the 1st is a reach

                I like em at the end of the 1st.. Hes gonna have a tremendous impact on the league i believe, and has alot of JJ Watt in him.. I think hes scheme versatile, and has the strength and athletic ability to play end in a 4/3 as well as outside in a 34.. He gets his arms up and bats down passes which is just as good as a sack in my opinion as well, and is a threat to block kicks... His only knock in my opinion outside of being alittle old is he plays alittle upright because of his HT, but i think that can be corrected as coaches teach him how to get lower going forward.. Hes still not a finished product...

                  Certainly, doubt he will be there when we pick. Lots of people talk about his age; however, in the second round I'm not as concerned.

                    I don't think it matters. Bodies start declining at 30 no matter what wear and tear they have.

                    Not like Ross was more durable because he didn't play as long

                      I'm not a Hunt fan just due to this size. At 6'8 he's a back spasm waiting to happen.

                      Having said that, he's an athletic freak and it wouldn't surprise me to see this guy excel on some team (at least in the short term). Hard to tell where the Giants view him Upside is that he's a pure athlete which the Giants love ... downside is that he's a 26 year old rookie.
                      I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

                        True, but aaron ross is also going into his 7th season, which isn't exactly a short career for a NFL player, and that is with a ton of injuires piling up on his body.. Margus Hunt will be around for along time if hes productive, end of story.. If he plays 7yrs in NY, then that would be along time, and a decent investment and he'd only be 33yrs old..

                          These are the kinds of statements that drive me insane.

                            huh? Another words, were talking about his age , and i was saying if Hunts productive, he'll continue to play, and age will play no part ... If he dosen't produe, he'll be outta the league well before then, and then people will say, "oh he was a old prospect", but in reality, he simply wasen't good... What do u hate about that?

                              Skip (and others) were referring to his age in that his shelf-life is most likely limited (whether he's productive or not). In other words, he'll be 30 years old when starting his second contract. 30 years old is the general demarcation line for the "prime" of an NFL player.

                              He's basically a full contract behind the player base as far as his prime years go, right out of the gate.

                              You made it sound as if his production will dictate his longevity, not his age (obviously both will be big factors in his NFL career (more than likely)).
