INDIANAPOLIS-Running back Kareem Hunt says he's got a little of three very good NFL running backs in him. The former Willoughby South and Toledo star is trying to impress teams at the NFL Combine.

"I try to be a mixture of all-around guys, like I like to be like a Le’veon (Bell)-type guy and sometimes a Marshawn Lynch-type guy," he said. "I switch it up, I try to be a mixture of everybody. Like David Johnson, all those guys. I try to collect each and everybody’s game a little bit."

Hunt was asked what it would like to play in his hometown of Cleveland. 

"It’d mean a lot," he said. "I would be home and just be able to play and enjoy my time at home and just have a lot of supporters and family out there, and it’d be a huge experience."

Hunt was asked if he's still a Browns fan.

"Oh, yeah, always," he said. "I’m going to be a Browns fan till I die. I’ve been a Browns fan growing up, I’ll be a Browns fan till I’m done playing football."

Hunt rushed for nearly 5,000 yards in high school and has been a workhorse back most of his career.

"You know, I just really didn’t let it get to my head," he said. "I just take it game by game and play by play. Honestly, I try to do the most with every carry and just do whatever it takes to help my team win. Honestly, if that means run for 500 yards, I’m running for 500 yards. Whatever it takes. And I’d like to give a lot of credit to my offensive line at Willoughby South (High School) and at Toledo. Those guys put in a lot of hard work and effort and I just tried to do my best to help the team win.

Hunt played in the Senior Bowl and has met with the Browns coaches and front office.
