Reports continue to trickle out about the Buffalo Bills deciding to meet with various 2020 NFL Draft prospects through the use of the app FaceTime. This week, it’s been reported that the team conducted a player interview with former Louisiana-Lafayette offensive tackle Robert Hunt. According to the reports, Hunt has been quietly in demand, as he has met with 13 teams in such a way. This makes sense, as the former four-year starter for the Ragin’ Cajuns is from a smaller school and projected to be selected anywhere from the third to the fifth round in the upcoming draft.
While Hunt played right tackle for his alma mater, there are questions about his foot speed and quickness to hold up on the edge in the pros. Most project the 6’5”, 323-lb lineman to move inside to guard, where his huge frame and strength would be a bigger asset. The 2020 Draft is not a particular deep one for offensive guards, or at the very least it’s not very top-heavy. Hunt would fit in well.
For the Bills, the senior would offer a great amount of versatility, as well as potential competition for players such as Cody Ford or starting guards Quinton Spain and Jon Feliciano. Even if he can’t compete with those players, the team could always use solid backups along the line.
