Kareem Hunt or Ezekiel Elliot - who will have a better career?
Zeke gets a ton of hype because he plays in Dallas... and most of it's justified.. but Kareem Hunt is the real deal. He's special. And what I like most is he's not an attention seeking jackass like Zeke. He's mature and poised. Think LT and David Johnson.
This game was no fluke. Kareem Hunt was always a special player but playing at Toledo you just don't get the same recognition or respect. Great for the Chiefs, sucks for everybody else.
Elliot is a bit faster, and more explosive. But I think Hunt will be better after contact and average more YPC.
This season and going forward, Kareem Hunt will be better than Ezekial Elliot and will have a better career. I could see Elliot flaming out due to off the field issues or just flatout losing discipline. Hunt is much more reliable IMO and is a rare talent.
The 2017 draft for the Chiefs will go down as one of the greatest ever.
Re: Kareem Hunt or Ezekiel Elliot - who will have a better career?
Sad part about Kareem Hunt is that I watched him play all through high school at Willoughby South HS (just outside of Cleveland). He grew up a Cleveland sports fan and was open about wanting to be drafted by the Browns (played in college for Toledo).
Everyone in Ohio that watched him come up knew that he was a special player. Apparently, the Browns front office didn't get the memo. Then again, Ohio State didn't get that memo either. He has been overlooked his entire football life.
I'm very happy to see the way he has exploded on the scene. From a success standpoint, Kansas City was the perfect landing spot for his style of running/catching.
