NFL Market Share Production:

Metric Recommendation: Anyone with some data sense would see Hunter as a potential outlier to sack market share production. When prospects hit every single threshold for greatness except for two categories, I tend to side with them being an outlier. Most outliers have this one pattern in common. But to completely throw out certain data points, because one player in the last nearly three decades worth of data didn’t pass is not very bright. Especially since that player hasn’t hit many of the career benchmarks those who did pass achieved.

In addition to Hunter being one of the youngest pass rushers to declare for the NFL Draft ever makes him a unique case as well. I would expect Hunter to continue to develop into one of the league’s best defensive ends. Something you would expect from a prospect who hits every physical, athletic and the majority of production thresholds. However, I would caution on crowning a prospect only two years into their career. He’s an interesting case going forward, but he hasn’t done anything yet to change the foundation of the status quo.
