Packers traded up to select UCLA QB Brett Hundley with the No. 147 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Hundley (6'3/226) made 40 starts at UCLA, completing 67.6 percent of his passes with a 75:25 TD-to-INT ratio and 30 more rushing scores. He absorbed a whopping 125 sacks in three college seasons, also fumbling 29 times. Although Hundley is strong armed and a terrific athlete, he showed zero feel for the pocket at UCLA and completed an abysmal 32.6 percent of his throws on the run. Smart (26 Wonderlic) with NFL-caliber tools, Hundley is a multi-year project who needs to ride the bench for at least a season or two, and will be afforded that time with the Packers.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley is "not unlike a Blake Bortles" and "can be developed," an anonymous NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"He has the physical tools," the scout said. "Got a strong arm. Yes, he'll be a starter at some point. It's not a refined talent." The biggest concerns the scout canvassed in the story had with Hundley was his accuracy. "He's a running back playing quarterback, OK?" another scout said. We more or less agree with that assessment. "I wonder about how coachable this guy is," another scout said. "There's a lot of ability there."

NFL scouts think UCLA QB Brett Hundley "has not improved in college and still lacks poise in the pocket" and dinged him for Colin Kaepernick's 2014 struggles, reports Frank Cooney of

"He can run and throw and was able to ring up a lot of yards in college, but Hundley rarely looked smooth and natural, especially in the pocket, where he seemed impatient and all too ready to run," Cooney wrote. Hundley posted 11,713 yards passing and a 75/25 TD/INT ratio in college and possesses top-notch tools, but we've never been high on him because he abandons his responsibility as a passer in the threat of danger. "He sometimes over-strides while passing, making his release point much lower and usually guides the ball from that stance, which means a slow release that invites an alert NFL defender to jump the route. He has ability, but is a project," Cooney wrote.

The Cowboys put UCLA QB Brett Hundley through a private workout on Thursday, according to Ian Rapoport.

Hundley visited the Cardinals earlier in the week. It seems Hundley has slid behind Bryce Petty in the "consensus" projected draft slots, but it is still possible for both to be second round picks. Which is amazing.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley is visiting the Cardinals on Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport notes Hundley's visit counts as a "top 30" but he is also from Arizona. The Cardinals were in on the Blake Bortles sweepstakes last year, however, he was selected much earlier than anticipated. Hundley has very good flashes, but his bad tendencies could cripple an offense.

The Saints will take a QB in Round 1, predicts NFL Media analyst Charles Davis.

The prediction is in one of those "five bold prediction" columns, so take this guess for what it is. That said, Davis' tealeaves are straightforward enough to read, even if he doesn't see them trading up for Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota. "What if there's a QB who has [Sean] Payton's eye this year that he believes he can groom to one day succeed Drew Brees?" Davis wrote. "The Saints have the 31st overall pick (acquired from Seattle in the Jimmy Graham trade). Perhaps that's the spot where the third quarterback is picked. We've seen quarterbacks go higher than expected before. Could the Saints make it happen this year for someone like UCLA's Brett Hundley?" If they did, they'd be making a mistake. That doesn't mean it won't happen, though.

The New York Jets held a private workout for UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley about four weeks ago, according to New York Daily News' Manish Mehta.

With the Jets still on the fence with QB Geno Smith, the 6-foot-3, 226-pound Hundley could be an alternative option for New York. The Jets, who have shown interest in Marcus Mariota, may pick too late (No.6 pick) in the draft, to land Mariota's services. Hundley should be around in the second, if the Jets have serious plans to draft him. Hundley has already met with the Texans, and had private workouts with the Bengals and the Eagles. The Cardinals have also scheduled a visit with the UCLA prospect.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley is visiting the Texans on Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport.

Signs point to the Texans selecting a quarterback during the draft after calling Tom Savage's name last year. Hundley now joins Bryce Petty as quarterbacks linked with the Texans. The Bruin needs time to sit and progress, namely his success against pressure and comfort in the face of a pass rush.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley "would be a nice fit to groom behind" Philip Rivers, believes's Charles Davis.

Davis' colleague Ian Rapoport recently reported that San Diego isn't ruling out trading Rivers. If they keep him, Davis sees Hundley as a nice prospect to develop behind him. "Hundley could use some seasoning -- his own coach says he's not ready to be a starter in the NFL from Day 1 -- but he's a good athlete with a strong arm and has the tools to develop into a solid NFL starter down the line," Davis wrote. "The Chargers likely won't have to strike in the first round to get him, too."

ESPN's Todd McShay ranks UCLA QB Brett Hundley as the No. 5 QB in the class.

Almost universally, Hundley was graded as the No. 3 QB when he elected to leave school early. We warned that he was making a mistake, and it's likely he's now understanding why: Given a chance to break down his game film, scouts are seeing exactly what we did, a prospect who struggles in the pocket, a trademark of past busts. "When I went back and studied Hundley's full catalogue of throws from 2014, he showed better accuracy than expected and once he zeroed in on his target I thought he showed good toughness staring down the pass rush from inside the pocket," McShay wrote. "But he was not asked to make a lot of anticipatory throws and there are still major concerns when it comes to his pocket awareness."

The Cardinals will put UCLA QB Brett Hundley through a private workout, according to Jeremy Fowler.

We aren't sure about his feet, but the Cardinals were in the market for a quarterback last year before selecting Logan Thomas. Thomas' rookie year might lead them to select another passer this offseason. Hundley only completed 39 percent of his passes 20+ yards downfield, and only 52 percent from 11-20 yards, both well below average. Both were adjusted for drops. Bruce Arians likes to test those two segments of the field.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley "flashes athleticism and talent, but his basic quarterbacking issues will take time to improve," according to NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

Hundley ranks as Zierlein's No. 3 QB, ahead of Bryce Petty. The analyst noted that Hundley's 2014 production was essentially useless in the NFL. More than 54 percent of Hundley's attempts were within six yards of the line of scrimmage, and 29 percent were behind it. "Hundley is a 'flash' prospect who shows the physical tools to be a starter, but his internal clock and issues with reads and progressions must be improved to give him a shot at becoming a decent NFL starter," Zierlein wrote.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang reports that the Philadelphia Eagles held a private workout and film room session with UCLA QB Brett Hundley on Wednesday.

The Eagles just traded for QB Sam Bradford and have re-signed Mark Sanchez, with Matt Barkley still on the roster. However, there have been rumors of Hundley interest in Philadelphia, and the UCLA prospect did meet with Eagles' QB coach Ryan Day at the Combine. Hundley could be seen as an alternative option to Marcus Mariota, now that it looks like Chip Kelly has moved in another direction. With two veteran QBs in the nest, Hundley could sit and develop behind Bradford and Sanchez.

An NFL scout said UCLA QB Brett Hundley was "on point and smooth" during his throwing session at Tuesday's pro day.

"The scout in attendance also pointed out that he thinks Hundley will need time to sit before he's ready for next level snaps," wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler. "And his college head coach agrees that Hundley isn't quite ready." The analyst added that Hundley's throwing session was tailor-made for his skill set, with pocket presence and vision not tested. Hundley is ranked by most as the draft's No. 3 or 4 QB. "You can't be worried about where you're going to go, where you're going to get drafted or who is doing what," Hundley said. "You have to worry about yourself and I think that's what it comes down to. I'm trying to be as good as I can for whatever team picks me."

UCLA QB Brett Hundley was pleased with his pro day performance.

"I'm really, really happy with what I did and satisfied with it. I felt like I put on a show today," Hundley said. "I feel like I can just relax a little but there's no break. I've got to keep going and keep getting better." Hundley provided the scouts in attendance with an up-tempo throwing session. QB-needy teams such as the Jets and Titans both sent contingents to watch Hundley throw. He didn't repeat the testing drills he did at the combine. "Brett threw well. He threw 60 passes and ended up completing 57 of the 60 with one drop," HC Jim Mora said. "Not every throw was perfect but I think what the scouts and coaches appreciated was his enthusiasm. When you sit down in interviews, you hear over and over what a great kid he is and what high character he (has)."
