Breaking Down the Film
Kareem Hunt is more than just a north-south ball-carrier capable of being little more than a nice backup at the NFL level.

Hunt may not be able to shed tacklers so easily at the next level. And his speed certainly won’t shock anyone at the NFL level either.
But the ability to work within a zone scheme should work well if San Francisco takes a shot on him.
