Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Looks the part with a tall, well-built frame and has the arm to unleash passes all over the field. Easy throwing motion with a strong, accurate arm. Noel Mazzone's offense asks him to make aggressive downfield throws and his quarterback shows the courage to attempt these passes even with defenders in close proximity to his targets.

Quick set-up and release, and possesses the velocity and touch to make any throw.

Even more impressive than Hundley's elusiveness and acceleration, however, is his vision and poise while buying time in the pocket. Hundley feels pressure well and is willing to step up and re-set while keeping his passing options open, critical for long-term success in the NFL.

Hundley has the physical traits to explode as a dual-threat passer in the NFL, and the mental toughness so critical for success at the next level.

WEAKNESSES: Takes virtually every snap from the shotgun and typically relies upon pre-snap reads in a relatively simple offense. Scouts want to see him operate better from the pocket, especially under duress.

Has a tendency to drop his eyes and look to run in the face of pressure, even when able to elude the initial defender. Good, but not great straight-line speed in the mold of elite dual-threat QBs.

Hundley's ball placement is a work-in-progress. Like most young quarterbacks, he needs to develop his anticipation as a passer and show better rhythm with his weapons, but he has the qualities that can't be coached.

COMPARES TO: Randall Cunningham, ex-Eagles: Hundley possesses a combination of size, athleticism, grace and arm strength reminiscent of the former Pro Bowler Cunningham.

IN OUR VIEW: On the surface, Hundley's skill-set seems every bit as tantalizing as Oregon's Marcus Mariota or Florida State's Jameis Winston. However, Hundley needs to improve in the critical subtleties of the quarterback position - pocket presence, reading defenses and ball placement.

Player Overview

Coming out of Chandler, Ariz., Hundley was the first UCLA quarterback recruit to earn a five-star rating (scout.com). As a senior, he completed 139 of 225 passes for 2,348 yards, 20 touchdowns and two interceptions, while also leading the team in rushing with 856 yards (7.0 avg.) and nine touchdowns.

Hundley redshirted under Rick Neuheisel in 2011, looked the part of a future blue-chip NFL prospect in guiding the Bruins to the Pac-12 South championship last year with coach Jim Mora. Hundley threw for a school-record 3,740 passing yards, including 29 touchdowns against just 11 interceptions in his first season.

Entering the season, Hundley was often mentioned among the top quarterback prospects in the country, but an inconsistent junior year hasn't done much to answer the questions scouts had on the player going into this season.

It has been a long time since a Bruins' quarterback has excited scouts. The last UCLA quarterback drafted, in fact, was Cade McNown, whom the Chicago Bears selected in the first round in 1999.

11/11/2014 - Jim Mora's return to Washington and the showdown between dual-threats Myles Jack and Shaq Thompson became a showcase for UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley. Hundley threw two touchdown passes to become the school's career leader, ran for two more scores and No. 18 UCLA completed a perfect season on the road with a 44-30 victory over Washington on Saturday night. The Bruins went 6-0 away from the Rose Bowl, capping their road slate with an impressive offensive performance led by Hundley. "He played with great certainty," Mora said. "He looked extremely poised in the pocket. I thought he stepped up and there the ball well, with accuracy. ... He practiced that way all week and performed that way tonight."

Hundley threw his 69th career touchdown pass on a 57-yard strike to Kenneth Walker III in the first quarter to give the Bruins ay 14-0 lead and pass Cade McNown on the school's list. Hundley added touchdown runs of 4 and 6 yards as UCLA (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12, No. 18 CFP) kept alive its hopes of winning the Pac-12 South. Hundley was 29 of 36 for 302 yards, his fourth 300-yard passing game this season and ninth of his career. "We moved really efficiently, got the ball out in (the receivers) hands. Ran the ball, threw the ball, had some fun," Hundley said. While Hundley's performance deserved the attention, Jack's 28-yard touchdown run in the second quarter was one for the highlight reels. - AP Sports
