School: UCLA | Position: Quarterback | Height: 6024 | Weight: 225 | Forty: 4.55 | Class: 2017
Hometown: Chandler, AZ | Year: Sophomore | Dob: 6/15/93 | Projection: 1st Round | Pro Comparison: Randall Cunningham

PROS

  • Possesses prototypical size and arm strength. Shows velocity and zip on his passes.
  • Dual threat quarterback. Pocket-passer first, does a good job of reading through his progressions. Great mobility in the pocket and dangerous on the run—long strides and vision allow him to pick up yards in bunches.
  • Clean nosed prospect; no off-field incidents up to this point of his career. Noted for being a good student, team leader and film-study junkie.
  • Receiving NFL style of coaching under Bruins head coach Jim Mora Jr and staff. Has really improved his ball release in terms of speeding up his delivery and getting rid of the ball quicker.

CONS

  • Below average accuracy on medium-deep ball range. Displays a longer windup on deeper throws.
  • Most snaps taken from shotgun formation—footwork will be a question mark.
  • Game still raw, as he flashes big time potential but can also negate good plays by making poor decisions. Needs all-around polish and better decision-making.

NOTES

  • Has worked with Jeff Garcia, Philip Rivers, Tim Tebow and Brock Osweiler during the offseason entering his 2014 campaign.
  • Bloodlines: Father, Brett Sr., was a running back at the University of Arizona, and his uncle played quarterback at Wichita State.
  • Has executed punts successfully for the Bruins.
  • Could be the first quarterback selected in the first round since Cade McNown (1999).

QUOTE

"Here's the thing about Brett, he's a thrower. He's a passer first. It would be awful for people to characterize Brett as a running quarterback. He's a quarterback who has great running ability if he needs it. When the NFL comes to evaluate him in earnest, they will absolutely fall in love with him. I can tell you unequivocally he's a first-round pick. He will be a star in the NFL." --UCLA HC Jim Mora Jr.

"To me, if you say, 'What does he have an opportunity this year to work on, or things that will help him as he moves on to the next level?' You've heard me and others say it a million times: He's a tremendous, athletically gifted quarterback, but just to continue to make the plays within the pocket, throwing the football and reading defenses. It's been a while since we've had a player of his caliber or had the attention on the program," –Former UCLA QB Troy Aikman

“I love Brett Hundley because he is a big, physical specimen that is an accomplished passer even at a young age and was very dominant in high school. What he did at UCLA was outstanding,” --QB Guru Steve Clarkson
