Justin Hunter didn’t have to wait long on Friday evening to hear his name called. The Tennessee Titans selected Hunter with the second pick of the second round.
Hunter will head to Nashville and stay in the same state where he played his college football. Hunter noted this fact on Twitter shortly after being drafted.

The Titan’s selection of Hunter will add plenty of depth to Tennessee’s receiving corps. Last year the Titans drafted wide receiver Kendall Wright out of Baylor.
Troubled wide receiver Kenny Britt is currently the team’s number one receiver.
Tennessee also has wide receivers Kevin Walter, Nate Washington and Damian Williams on the roster.
Hunter is plenty capable of being a number one receiver. At 6’4″ he’s got good size and wide catching radius. Hunter is also very fast and can get down the field in a hurry.
Justin Hunter was graded by many draft analysts as a first round talent. The first round was heavy on offensive lineman which pushed several quality wide receivers to the second round.
Although Hunter does have some areas in which he needs to improve, he’s a great value for the Tennessee Titans.
