Kareem Hunt of the Toledo Rockets is a decent sized back with excellent speed. He is extremely shifty and adavanced in his footwork, and he has above-average vision which allows him to pinpoint where the open holes are.
Hunt is fully capable of breaking the big runs. Then, there are times where he struggles to find the burst once he reaches the secondary. He got a consistent amount of carries in each game he played in, and he rushed for 1,475 yards in 2016.
Something else that is noticeable is the fact that his output declined since the 2014 season when he ran for 1,631 yards on 205 carries. The next two seasons, coaches and fans saw a dip in his production, but he still finished with 262 carries in 2016, 57 more than he had in 2014. Hunt is the type of back who can get four to five yards per carry. Then again, there’s also the threat of him losing yards when he tries to turn small gains into bigger runs.
