Career Stats: 1,239 passing attempts, 9,966 passing yards, 75 passing touchdowns and 25 interceptions.
Strengths: Brett Hundley has a lot to like just by looking at him, as his size, strong arm and overall athleticism is very intriguing from the moment you see him. Hundley completed better than 67 percent of his passes for his career, and he played in an offense that wasn’t afraid to push the ball downfield. When dialed in (needs more consistency on this part), Hundley will stand in the pocket and deliver a strong throw on the numbers. Of course, Hundley’s main strength right now are his legs, as he’s a very elusive runner who can do a little more than just move the chains. Hundley is a very confident player who quietly emerged as a leader his last season with the Bruins.
Weaknesses: Brett Hundley is still a raw quarterback who sometimes would still make foolish mistakes you’d expect a more experienced QB to outgrow. Hundley sometimes still looks to run when he doesn’t need to, and his ball placement can certainly use work for the next level. Hundley hasn’t shown he can consistently make plays from the pocket with his arm, and he also needs to learn how to play under center.
Projection: Brett Hundley is a project but has a ton of promising tools that shouldn’t be ignored. If team’s are willing to take a risk on Marcus Mariota, there’s no question Hundley will be give a fair shot to succeed. Due to his athleticism and ability to place the deep ball, I’d take a risk on Hundley as early as the late second round. The former UCLA quarterback has a chance to be a real steal in this draft.
