Senior Bowl Snapshot: SMU DE Margus Hunt

Posted by drewdougherty on January 24, 2013 – 1:43 pm

Margus Hunt, a defensive end from Southern Methodist University, was at the Senior Bowl hoping to make another good impression on NFL scouts and front-office personnel. Hailing from the European nation of Estonia, Hunt shared what his strengths were when we caught up with him after Tuesday’s practice.

“I’m physical, definitely detail-oriented,” Hunt said. “I want to make sure that I do my job. First so that the other guys will be able to play fast off of me and make plays first and foremost.  If I get through and make a play, that’s all good as well but it’s a team sport, so I’m more team oriented.”

He has an interesting background . In 2006 he won gold in the Junior Worlds in both the shot put and discus. He came to SMU in 2007 to throw and wound up joining the Mustang football team in 2009 as a walk-on. In 2012 as a Mustang, Hunt was a first team All-Conference USA defensive end. He tallied  31 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, eight sacks, and an interception. He was a dominant force, as you can see here, in this year’s Hawaii Bowl victory over Fresno State. But during his four years with the Ponies, the 6-foot-8 inch tall Hunt distinguished himself by blocking 17 kicks. When first asked about the unique ability, he deflected the praise.

“Blocking kicks is more about teamwork,” Hunt said. “I had really great defensive linemen who helped me out with getting to the crease, getting separation and getting to the ball to be able to block that kick.”

We acknowledged his modesty, and pressed him on what he did to help block those kicks.

“I have to get skinny and get to the gap and keep my feet going. I have to stay low to get underneath he offensive lineman’s shoulder pads. There’s still something involved, but most of the help comes from teammates.”
