2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Hunter worked his way into the defensive line rotation for the Vikings as a rookie during the 2015 season after being picked in the third round of the draft. In 14 games he racked up 33 tackles, six sacks, and one forced fumble coming off the bench behind starting defensive ends Everson Griffen and Brian Robison. Hunter figures to see his role increase even more throughout 2016, as Robison is now 33 years old and could see his snap count dwindle.

2015

Hunter, a 2015 third-round draft pick, is raw and a bit unskilled, but his athletic traits imply considerable upside. At 6-foot-5, 252 pounds, Hunter displayed 4.5 speed. Minnesota might groom him as Brian Robison's long-term replacement.
