What caught the Chiefs' attention from Kareem Hunt was his blocking. In particular, it was the block he threw that took out two Bengals at once and allowed Alex Smith the time to complete a pass to Anthony Sherman on a fourth-down play. The Chiefs scored the first touchdown of their 30-12 win two plays later.
It takes game action to be sure of a running back's ability to pass block.
Hunt also looked good running the ball but if the rookie can pick up pass protection it could increase his time on the field this season. Ware owners may want to try and grab Hunt later in drafts as a potential handcuff.
