Biography

 
PRO: Justin Hunter adds big-play potential to a talented corps of wide receivers that also includes veterans Nate Washington and Kendall Wright.  The Titans coveted the University of Tennessee product in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft and traded up to acquire him.  His speed (4.40-second 40-yard dash), leaping ability (39½-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-7-inch broad jump) and receiving radius (6-feet 4-inches tall, 78-inch wingspan) provide quarterbacks an inviting target that is difficult for defenders to cover.  He averaged 19.7 yards per reception and scored four touchdowns during his rookie campaign.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    As a rookie in 2013, Hunter totaled 18 receptions for 354 yards and four touchdowns.  His four touchdown receptions tied Kendall Wright (2012) and Tyrone Calico (2003) for the most by a franchise rookie since Chris Sanders’ nine in 1995.
•    Hunter scored touchdowns on his first two career NFL receptions.  He caught a game-winning, 34-yard touchdown pass against San Diego on Sept. 22, 2013, and he next hauled in a 15-yard touchdown pass against the New York Jets on Sept. 29, 2013.
•    As a junior at Tennessee, Hunter returned from an ACL injury he suffered in 2011 and led the Volunteers with 73 receptions for 1,083 yards and nine touchdowns.  

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    Hunter was one of the nation’s top track-and-field athletes in high school.  He finished as the top junior in the long jump at the 2010 USA Outdoor Championships with a leap of 25-feet-10¾-inches and qualified for IAAF World Junior Championships.  Track & Field News rated him the country’s No. 3 long jumper, No. 7 high jumper and No. 14 triple jumper.  He won Virginia state titles in both the high jump and long jump and finished second in the triple jump.
•    Hunter continued his track and field career as a freshman at Tennessee.  He was named first-team USTFCCCA Indoor All-American in the long jump after finishing eighth at the NCAA Indoor Championships with a leap of 25-feet 4½-inches.  He was also named to the SEC Indoor All-Freshman Team as the highest finishing rookie in the long jump at the league championships.  Earlier in the season he set the Tennessee freshman indoor record with a long jump of 26-feet 1½-inches.  He also competed in the triple jump and placed 10th in the high jump at the SEC Outdoor meet.

CAREER TRANSACTIONS:  
•    The Virginia Beach, Va., native was selected by the Titans in the second round (34th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft, a pick acquired from the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for the 40th overall pick (second round), the 216th overall pick (seventh round) and a 2014 third-round pick.

Became the eighth Vol in history with a 1,000-yard receiving season.
