04/29/13 - The Titans pulled off a draft-day surprise early in the second round of the draft on Friday. The Titans, who held the 40th pick, traded up with San Francisco to move to No. 34, the second pick of the day, for wide receiver Justin Hunter of the University of Tennessee. Hunter, 6-4, 195, was a surprise in that the Titans' emphasis past round one was supposed to be on defense, but with the wide receiver having such a high draft grade, it was a move general manager Ruston Webster could not resist and spent most of the day engineering the move up, surrendering pick No. 40, plus No. 216 and next year's third-rounder. "He was a target for us. He's got special size, speed and athletic ability," Webster said of Hunter. "I don't think he's reached his ceiling yet. He was a great option for us there, really the best option we had."
Hunter joins Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Nate Washington and gives the Titans a big speed threat to go with Britt, who has been a disappointment due to injuries and off-field incidents. Offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains is content to let the chips fall where they may as the roles are sorted out in the receiving corps. "It means everyone is going to compete. It means we're filling that room with as much competition and as much talent as we can," Loggains said. - The Sports Xchange
04/25/13 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 38. *Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee: Hunter dropped too many big passes for my taste in 2012 but he's shockingly fluid for a 6-4, 196-pounder. With better concentration, he could emerge as a Pro Bowl talent. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/21/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: FIVE BOLD PREDICTIONS: 4. Cordarrelle Patterson will not be the top Tennessee wide receiver drafted...The top JUCO prospect a year ago, Cordarrelle Patterson burst onto the college landscape with a bang and showed off his explosive athleticism and intrigued NFL scouts with his natural ability and upside. However, while most view him as a top-20 prospect, he won't be the first wide receiver out of Knoxville drafted on April 25; that distinction will go to his former teammate, Justin Hunter. Although he was very highly-rated entering the year, Hunter slipped down boards due to his inconsistency catching the ball, but nonetheless, he has that fluid athleticism that will cause teams to take a chance on him. Patterson struggled through team interviews and several front offices have already taken him off their first-round draft board, but Hunter has done the opposite, rising into the top 32 picks. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
