Okay, so Robert Hunt isn’t as much flying under the radar as he is flying over it and doing a 180*. Otherwise a little known lineman, Hunt made some serious waves a few weeks back against the Ravens when he illegally caught a pass from Tagovailoa and ran it in for a touchdown before being flagged for it. But just because the score didn’t count doesn’t mean that Hunt lost his spotlight time. There are still memes circulating nearly a month later of Hunt’s likeness.
But it has been his work in the trenches that makes him eligible for our list. The Dolphins’ offensive line has been atrocious this season, with members routinely being graded as some of the worst blockers in the league.
While Hunt would likely be an average lineman on any other team, he is by default the shining star of the Miami Dolphins’ front five. He will have games in which he is graded very well, something that none of the other lineman have done at all this season. He also passes the eye test, as there are not a whole lot of times that I find myself yelling at Hunt through my TV for a missed block. Those outbursts are generally saved for Liam Eichenberg, Jesse Davis, and Austin Jackson.
The team may need to do some serious house cleaning along the offensive line, but Hunt could be one of the leftover players after the re-haul.
