The Tennessee Titans have selected Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter with the 34th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Fantasy analysis: Hunter rebounded nicely in 2012 after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in 2011. The extremely athletic, 6-foot-4, 196-pounder is a downfield threat with insane leaping ability (39 1/2-inch vertical). In some regards, he is a poor man's Randy Moss.
Tennessee entered the NFL Draft with Kenny Britt, Nate Washington, Kevin Walter, and last year's first-round pick, Kendall Wright, on roster as their most prominent wideouts. Britt is an injury or legal mishap waiting to happen, Washington has been shopped much of the offseason, and Walter was just signed, so it is fair to say Wright is the only safe bet to make the Week 1 roster. Britt is a free agent after the 2013 season.
Until this mess is sorted out, and considering the struggles quarterback Jake Locker has experienced in his short NFL career, drafting Hunter as anything more than a late gamble is not advised. He has fantastic long-term potential for those playing in full-retention keeper formats.
