Louisiana's starting tackle Robert Hunt is off the board with the 39th overall pick in the second round.

The Miami Dolphins draft the Cajuns' four-year starter. Hunt will likely be asked to move inside and play guard in the NFL.

He's the program's third, second-round pick joining Charles Tillman who was drafted by the Bears in 2003 and Anthony Clement who was drafted by the Cardinals in 1998.

"We couldn't be more proud of Robert Hunt as he continues his journey into the National Football League,” head coach Billy Napier said in a release. “From the very beginning, Robert was someone who has been a leader in our locker room and in our community. He will be an outstanding representative of the Ragin' Cajuns at the next level, and the Miami Dolphins will find out quickly how tremendous he is, as both a person and as a football player."

Hunt missed time late in the season with a groin injury, but tells KATC he is 100 percent. Read our full Draft Day profile on him here.
