Strong Points: Not very big but feisty and plays bigger than he measures. Very good quickness and suddenness. Turns in a flash and transitions without false steps. Tries to be physical. Good mirror skills in man coverage. Solid awareness in zone. Plays the ball well. Willing in run support.
Weak Points: Small, narrow frame -- not close to CMU's listed size of 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds. More quick than fast and might not break 4.50 in 40. Struggles taking on blocks when playing in support and misses some tackles. Lacks top strength.
The Way We See It: Bunting, a two-year starter for Central Michigan, was a very productive cover guy with seven interceptions over the past two years. He has a small, narrow frame and average height but is tough and tries to play a physical game. With his feet and quickness, he shows good mirror skills -- especially vs. shorter routes. Bunting is adequate jamming and slowing up receivers at the line of scrimmage. Once the ball is in the air, he has strong hands and playmaking skills. Bunting projects best as a slot corner at the NFL leve, as he doesn't have the size to match up against bigger outside receivers. With his toughness and quickness, he should fare well in the slot. He might need a year of development but could eventually become a team's third corner. Testing will be important for Bunting.
