4th CB battle: what do they have in Michael Hunter?

Vin_Cuccs : 8/6/2017 11:53 am
When Michael Hunter was signed as an undrafted free agent last spring, I assumed he was simply a camp body.

He stuck around, got cut, re-signed and spent some time on the practice squad and active roster. He got beaten a few times (especially by Tom Brady) but showed some flashes. He obviously has some talent as he played for two different power 5 teams in college (Indiana before transferring to Oklahoma State).

Fast forward, and here we are with a CB battle. I must say I am intrigued by him. There is an opening at the 4th CB spot after the departure of Coty Sensabaugh. With some refinement and development, I am very curious to see what Hunter can be.

He's slowly working his way up the depth chart and getting some positive reviews from training camp.

Can he beat out fan favorite Donte Deayon and free agent addition Valentino Blake?

Can anyone at can expand be on his progression and how he looks this summer?

Any thoughts on his chances to make the 53?

Sy'56 likes him. A lot, I believe

Sy has been touting his horn for the last few weeks

He definitely has the size and based on Sy's reports, his coverage has improved. We'll see how he does in game action.
Sounds like he has the #4 spot

pretty much locked up. We'll see how he does in pre-season.
He's going to be the eventual

but last year, every time I noticed Michael Hunter he was stride-for-stride for his man. If he keeps his assignments he could be quite a find.
Giants will want to keep at least 4 CBs with legitimate size

Deayon is a smurf, both height and weight. Might have some value as a 5th specialty slot CB matched up against extreme horizontal quickness.

Early I know, but assuming we keep 4 or more CBs, Hunter has this team made barring injury.
who is the last undrafted CB to become a a top player?

maybe Everson Walls?

just doesn't happen that often

that said, it is interesting that he has such good measurables: 4.40 forty, 38.5 vertical, 17 reps

he did have a lousy 3 cone but usually when you think of an undrafted guy who becomes good, it is because he played better than he tested

but this guy tested really well. He is also six feet and 190 lbs. So he has the size, speed, and strength

Chris Harris and Malcolm Butler are pretty good.
Sy has him as a starter
