Dolphin DigestJune/July 2020
With their first of two second-round picks, the 39th overall, the Dolphins selected Louisiana-Lafayette offensive tackle Robert Hunt.
He became the first player from his school ever drafted by the Dolphins.
Four-year starter at Louisiana-Lafayette
Started at left guard as a freshman in 2016, at left guard and left tackle in 2017, and at right tackle the past two seasons
Missed the second half of the 2019 season because of a groin injury
Invited to the Senior Bowl
Redshirted in 2015
First-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection in 2019 ... second-team All-Sun Belt selection in 2018.
Hunt did not work out at the combine because he was recovering from his groin injury.
He officially measured 6-5, 323 with 33 1 ⁄2-inch arms and 10 3 ⁄4 hands.
NFL.COM SCOUTING REPORT
“Like Cody Ford in last year's draft, Hunt is a plus athlete with a big man’s frame who could be considered at guard or tackle. Inconsistent footwork and pad level are the primary culprits when he fails to win the rep, but there aren’t any physical limitations that should prevent him from improving in both areas. Pass protection traits are present but getting the skill level up to par is going to take time. He’s a little raw but has the necessary talent to become a solid future starter at right tackle.”
