Round 4 (119): Kareem Hunt, RB, Toledo
The Eagles have yet to address the running back situation and as I said previously, Ryan Mathews is still expected to be released. When Mathews is released the Eagles will only have Wendell Smallwood, and Darren Sproles on the roster. Sproles isn’t an every down back and Smallwood is unproven, so adding Hunt would be logical. Hunt was very productive at Toledo, and would be a perfect fit in the Eagles backfield.
Overview via NFL.com:
"Hunt’s 2015 season was one to forget. He was suspended the first two games for violating team rules, then struggled with hamstring and ankle injuries during the course of the year. Somehow, he still covered 973 yards and scored 12 times on 178 carries in just nine games, garnering second-team All-MAC notice. Expectations were high going into that season, however, because he led the MAC in rushing as a sophomore in 2014 (1,631) despite missing three games with an ankle injury. Hunt finished third in the nation with 163 rush yards per game and ended the year with a 271-yard, five-touchdown effort against Arkansas State in the GoDaddy.com Bowl. The first-team All-State pick from Ohio (2,685 yards, 44 TD as a senior) received a fair amount of playing time as a freshman, accumulating 866 yards and six scores. Hunt finished his Toledo career on a high note, garnering first-team All-MAC honors for the second time, rushing for 1,475 yards and ten touchdowns while also racking up 41 catches for 403 yards and a score (all receiving numbers bettered his totals in his first three seasons combined.)"
