Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Bengals' picks: Round 2/53 - Margus Hunt, DE, 6-8, 277, SMU...He led the Mustangs in sacks last season with 8.0 and closed out his career as a record-setting kick blocker, with 17 (10 field goals and seven extra points). The first year is going to be plenty of learning, especially with a deep group at defensive end. However, he could make an immediate impact on special teams and is an insurance policy with Michael Johnson on a one-year deal and Carlos Dunlap in the last year of his contract. - The Sports Xchange
