Wayne Hunter was selected in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks. He started his college career as a defensive tackle before the Warriors moved him to the offensive side of the ball for his final two years in school. Seattle saw the athleticism of the 6'5" 318 pound guy enticing, but things did not work out there.

After an unremarkable 2006 season in Jacksonville, the Jets brought the project aboard in 2007. When Bill Callahan arrived the next year, Wayne started developing more and more and made good on his skills. It got to the point where Rex Ryan, never shy about praising his guys, said Wayne was the best backup tackle in football.

He finally got his chance in 2010 as injuries to Damien Woody forced Hunter into the lineup for the first extended action of his career. It came during a contract year. Now he will get a chance to take his talents on the market with a film reel of his work.
