Justin Hunter’s tenure with the Tennessee Titans started a little rocky, as a sore hamstring caused the rookie to miss almost all of the Titan’s OTA’s in the Spring.
The former Tennessee Volunteer alleviated some of those concerns on Thursday, drawing praise as a player who “stood out” on the Titan’s first day of training camp.

Justin Hunter participated fully. Couple of nice grabs by him during practice, too. #Titans

The Titans are expecting big things from Hunter this year, especially since they traded up to the 34th overall pick in the 2013 draft to take the 6’4″ receiver.
Hunter recovered from a torn ACL, suffered during his sophomore season against Florida, to post 1,083 yards and nine touchdowns on 73 receptions as a junior at Tennessee last season.
There was some concern about drops with Hunter as he struggled at times last season, so it’s huge that he’s impressing early in camp.
If Hunter can remain consistent, he can become an integral part of the Titan’s offense as early as this season.
