Hunt to be Chiefs lead back?

  • ESPN’s Adam Teicher believes that rookie running back Kareem Hunt will be the Chiefs primary running back in 2017.
  • A third round draft pick this year, Hunt was the highest graded running back in this draft class, with a PFF grade of 94.9.
  • Particularly impressive was his ability to make defenders miss, with only Florida State’s Dalvin Cook forcing more missed tackles on carries in 2016.
  • Impressive as a receiver too, Hunt forced 22 missed tackles on 42 receptions in 2016.
