NFL Media analyst Charles Davis doesn't "think some scouts are giving [UCLA QB Brett Hundley] his due credit as a thrower."
"He's competing to be the third quarterback off the board this year, after Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota," Davis wrote. "That battle isn't over, but some evaluators weren't particularly impressed with how he threw at the combine and they need to see more from him." Hundley is going to get his chance to show them on March 10 at UCLA's pro day. He has already announced he'll stand on his impressive combine numbers (Hundley's 3.98 20-yard shuttle set a new QB combine record, and he ran a 4.63 forty), but Hundley will throw for scouts. Davis, for one, thinks he will impress. "I can't wait to see how he fares," he wrote. "He has a chance to go out and put all those questions to rest, and I think he'll probably do just that."

An NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that UCLA QB Brett Hundley has "got a lot of flaws in his game."

"I don't think he can mentally process," the scout said. "His arm and talent are OK." The 6-foot-3, 226-pounder has 4.63 wheels, a strong arm and a career 75-25 TD-INT ratio, but, as the scout indicates, we've never seen the tools coalesce on the field. "The physical tools are there," another scout said. "He's going to need time. He's going to have to go to a team that will need to have patience with him and just continue teaching him the game. A team at the top of the second (round) that needs a quarterback might throw him to the fire too early, and he's not ready for that."

CBS Sports' NFL Insider Pat Kirwan mentioned that he wouldn't be "surprised" if UCLA QB Brett Hundley "goes in the bottom of the first round."

"Just interviewed Brett Hundley...don't be surprised if he goes in the bottom of the first round," Kirwan tweeted. The UCLA prospect's stock has started to rise a bit, since the combine. With evaluators having a hard time agreeing on who the third QB in this draft is, Hundley seems to have and edge on the other prospects not named Winston or Mariota. The Philadelphia Eagles have been linked to the 6-foot-3, 226-pound Hundley as of late. With Oregon QB Marcus Mariota most likely out of reach for the Eagles, Hundley offers Chip Kelly a prospect with a ton of athleticism who is familiar with his system.

The MMQB's Jenny Vrentas spoke with one coach who questioned his peers for not finding 32 QBs talented enough to start in the NFL.

"There are 300 million people in the U.S., but we can’t find 32 NFL quarterbacks? As coaches, we’re messing it up," the coach said. The lack of quarterback talent is a big argument against adding more NFL franchises, at least from an entertainment perspective. The question is if teams would start incorporating offenses that rely less on traditional quarterback types. The position seems near its low in terms of talent.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes UCLA QB Brett Hundley "is a project in most schemes but perhaps not so much" for Philadelphia Eagles' HC Chip Kelly.

"Hundley is a project in most schemes but perhaps not so much for Kelly. The 6-3, 226-pounder has terrific speed, a big arm and a career 3-to-1 TD-INT (75-25). The drop-off in talent after the top three quarterbacks is significant enough to push Hundley into the first round, even though many clubs view him as a second-round value." The UCLA prospect's athleticism and familiarity with the system could help his case, as both Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez were fairly successful, despite the athletic skill-set. If Marcus Mariota is off the table for the Eagles, than Hundley could be a potential back-up plan for Philadelphia, but at No.20 it's a huge gamble.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley was "very impressive during the interview process with teams," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Articulate, intelligent and comes across as a leader," Pauline wrote. Hundley is an extremely easy prospect to dream on. He's a respected leader, has a history with pressure having been UCLA's quarterback, is ridiculously athletic, and has a nice arm. We won't come around on him, however, because we haven't seen those traits coalesce on the field. When bullets are firing around him, Hundley uses his athleticism to become a running back, dropping his eyes and removing his arm from the equation. It won't matter how well spoken he is if Hundley can't effectively learn how to deal with pressure.

The Browns would have considered taking UCLA QB Brett Hundley in the top ten of last year's draft, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

We're endlessly tickled by this report. Not only did Ray Farmer whiff on Johnny Manziel, but he apparently preferred to swing harder and miss more profoundly on Hundley. Of course, on the bright side, Farmer can now wait until Round 2 to torch a pick on Hundley. Don't put it past him to get antsy at No. 19, though. In all seriousness, Hundley tested extremely well athletically on Saturday, as expected. We still wouldn't invest the Day 2 pick it's going to require to acquire the UCLA thrower.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley ran a 3.98 20 yard short shuttle, which is the best for QBs since 2006.

Not only is this the best of QBs (Matt Scott had a 3.99), this time is the second best among RBs, behind only Chris Rainey. To perhaps put it into perspective, Jordan Lynch has the best 3-cone since 2006 among QBs, and second best among RBs in that same span. Hundley also ran a 4.63 unofficial forty with a 1.63 10 yard split.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis believes UCLA QB Brett Hundley "can cement his [No. 3 QB] status by showing off his arm and athleticism at the combine."

Hundley's throwing drills specifically will be scrutinized by evaluators. "Hundley passed on a chance to compete in the Senior Bowl -- and I'm not knocking him for that decision -- so this will be his first chance to make an impression on teams this draft season and show that it should be him, not Bryce Petty, Garrett Grayson or anyone else, that should be the third QB off the board," Davis wrote. "Hundley certainly looks the part, and teams will want to see just how live his arm can be." The 6-foot-3, 227-pound Hundley took 125 sacks over the last three seasons. We'd put more stock in combine throwing drills if bullets were flying during them.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley's Combine measurements were 6'3" and 226 lbs.

Hundley has 10 1/2" hands and 32 1/8" arms. Expect the mobile quarterback to run well at the Combine. He has already said he will throw, but it should not impact anything.
Feb 19 - 1:48 PM

Even though UCLA QB Brett Hundley will work out at the combine, NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks notes that it won't answer the questions about his "pocket awareness and poise."

"Hundley can't answer the biggest questions surrounding his game (pocket awareness/poise) in shorts/t-shirts," Brooks tweeted. The UCLA prospect has not been able to show that he can consistently win from the pocket and has struggled with reading defenses and getting through his progressions. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound Hundley, has taken 125 sacks in the last three seasons and will have to make huge strides with his pocket presence, if he's going to be a starting QB at the next level.

After skipping the Senior Bowl, UCLA QB Brett Hundley will throw and go through all Combine drills, according to Ian Rapoport.

Hundley said he was still recovering from the season, which led to the passing on the Combine. Throwing at the Combine should be a no win, no lose situation, since quarterbacks are passing to receivers they have never worked with. However, as we saw last year, context and perspective can be lost during the process. Expect Hundley to test like a very good athlete.

NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock said this QB class is thin.

UCLA's Brett Hundley and Baylor's Bryce Petty are widely seen as the favorites to be the No. 3 QB taken behind Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. Hundley's pocket awareness and Petty's lack of pro-style experience are typically pointed to as those prospect's biggest weaknesses, respectively, but Mayock brought up another: "Both those guys are indecisive if their first read isn't there."

UCLA QB Brett Hundley completed 32.6 percent of his when scrambling, with zero touchdowns and one interception, according to STATS Inc.

Hundley averaged three yards per play on these occasions. Our own Josh Norris has consistently said one of Hundley's biggest issues is resetting his eyes to find open receivers once dropping them. This kind of data is not available on many quarterbacks yet, but hopefully we can pass them along to generate some kind of comparison. Either way, Hundley needs to do a better job using his athleticism as a passer and not just as a runner.

An assistant personnel director told CBS Sports that "[the third QB] could go anywhere from the bottom of the first to the bottom of the third."

"Behind them the picture is cloudy at best," wrote Pat Kirwan. "UCLA's Brett Hundley comes up, but no one seems to have a feel for a definitive No. 3, or where he might be drafted." Hundley, who will be heavily scrutinized at the combine, does figure to be the No. 3 QB selected, even if we wouldn't pull the trigger on him personally. "At least six teams need to draft a QB. So when Winston and Mariota are off the board, that leaves at least four trying to figure out the next-best QB, which alone could push a team into taking one near the end of the first round," Kirwan added. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein recently compared Hundley to NFL journeyman Jason Campbell.
