Justin Hunter ready for challenge from Dorial Green-Beckham
New Tennessee Titans wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham arrives in Nashville with plenty of expectations as the team's second-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
The player the Titans selected in the second round in 2013, receiver Justin Hunter, says he's up for the challenge he'll face from the rookie.
"He's another big guy like me, but he has more size on him," Hunter said, according to John Glennon of the Tennessean. "Competition is going to bring out the best in us. Everybody is going to fight for a position, and when the season comes, it will be a good thing."
The 23-year-old Hunter, who played 12 games last season before suffering a season-ending spleen injury, said he doesn't feel any added pressure from the Titans' decision to draft Green-Beckham.
"I don't feel like it," Hunter said. "It will just make me work a little harder … We're probably going to be playing the same position. So he's going to be fighting for a spot, and that will get the best out of both of us."
Hunter caught 28 passes for 498 yards and three touchdowns for Tennessee last season.
