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." Apr 1 - 11:05 PM

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)."

UCLA QB Brett Hundley "has a good arm and was very accurate" at Tuesday's pro day, noted's Gil Brandt.

"His impressive workout at the pro day helped his draft status, and the quarterback has a good chance to be a second-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft," Brandt wrote. By all indications, Hundley had an impressive throwing session Tuesday. As we noted earlier, though, his workout was done in a vacuum in which vision and pocket presence weren't necessary. We question nothing about Hundley when bullets aren't flying, and everything about him when the howitzer starts discharging rounds.

UCLA HC Jim Mora doesn't believe QB Brett Hundley is ready to be an immediate NFL starter.

"I think he's ready for the NFL. I don't know that he's ready to go in and start in the NFL," Mora said. "I think if he can find the right situation where he can go in and learn and have a couple years to work on his craft -- because he will work on it, his work ethic is off the charts, character is off the charts -- if he can get himself in the right situation where he's not thrown right into the starting lineup, then I think he can be a very productive NFL player." As noted, the quotes were reminiscent of Pete Carroll's after Mark Sanchez left school early. Mora very likely unsuccessfully lobbied Hundley to remain in school for another year. We, for one, believe he should have. Hundey struggles in the pocket, a trademark of past busts, and an issue that another year in school could have done some good. To be fair, Hundley may have dropped two rounds by sticking around last season, and it's possible he was concerned with slipping further.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley is excited to throw for scouts at UCLA's Tuesday pro day.

"First off, it's accuracy and then arm strength," Hundley said. "With that arm strength though, I want to throw a catchable ball. You can have all the arm in the world but if the receiver can't catch it, you're doing something wrong. So being able to show there's some zip on the ball while also being catchable and accurate is the biggest thing." Hundley has been working on his pro day throwing script for nearly a week. On Tuesday, he will throw with former Bruins like Ricky Marvray and Jordon James, and former NFL players such as Jeremy Horne.

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."
Mar 2 - 10:25 PM

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."
Mar 1 - 7:11 PM

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.
