Despite 40 time, OSU’s Hunter proves worth

Published on March 10, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Might the NFL have found the next Darren Sproles? It’s possible.

Oklahoma State RB Kendall Hunter, who measured at 5-foot-7 and 200 pounds, had a pretty good performance at the Cowboys’ pro day Wednesday, working out on FieldTurf outdoors in front of representative from 20 teams. Still, some might knock him for not making drastic improvements in his 40-yard dash from the NFL Scouting Combine.

He ran 4.53 seconds in the 40 in Indy, but on his home turf stayed relatively the same, running 4.52 with the wind and 4.58 against it.

“I did pretty good overall at the combine, but I wanted to knock the 40 time down because I knew I could do better than what I did, so I came here and ran it,” Hunter said. “I feel like I ran pretty well.”

Regardless of 40, I think this kid is a nice change-of-pace option at the next level. He showed a lot of quickness in position drills. He’s a quick lightning bug guy, and I think he’s a perfect fit in today’s multiple-back system NFL.

Other notables from the Oklahoma State work out:

LB Orie Lemon (6-foot-0 ¾, 243 pounds) ran 4.87 in the 40 and pulled a hamstring. He had a 9-5 broad jump and a 31-inch vertical, but did not perform in any other drills.

DE Ugo Chinasa (6-5, 263) ran 4.70 and 4.65 in the 40. He did the short shuttle in 4.58 and stood on his other combine numbers.

DB Andrew McGee (5-11, 193) ran 4.77 and 4.71 in the 40 and strained a hamstring.

P/K Dan Bailey worked out for scouts.
