Kendall Hunter to San Francisco 49ers: 2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Dylan MacNamara@@DylanMacNamaraSenior Writer IApril 30, 2011

Kendall Hunter is another guy whose college career was temporarily derailed by injuries.

After a magnificent 2008 season in which Hunter was named first team All-American and led the Big 12 in rushing, expectations were high heading into 2009. 

However, Hunter ended up playing in just eight games in 2009 and registered just 89 carries. 

The 2010 season saw Kendall regain his sophomore year form as he rushed for over 1,500 yards and 16 touchdowns, one of the best single-season rushing performances in Oklahoma State history. 

Though he’s undersized at just 5’7'' (kind of reminds of you of another short OK St. back from the late 80s), Hunter will be a valuable third-down option and offer value in the return game.

Hunter should step in right away and replace Brian Westbrook as the Niners scat back, third-down option who can catch passes out of the backfield.
