Hunter is making millions as a two-way star

Coach Prime predicted Travis Hunter would be a top name next year, and he seems right. For starters, the Buffs star shines on both offense and defense. In defense, he got 31 tackles and just 3 interceptions. Likewise, on offense, he caught 57 passes for 721 yards and five touchdowns. That, too, even while missing three games with an injury. Whether Hunter plays receiver or cornerback or continues on offense and defense, he’s a nearly guaranteed top-three pick in the 2025 NFL Draft. Any team lucky enough to get him will face the unique challenge of paying him for dual roles.
