Brett Hundley : Quarterback – UCLA Bruins

Projected in rounds 1-3

The one big criticism he faces is that he holds the ball too long. He has taken 123 sacks in just three seasons. He also takes a majority of his snaps in shotgun, so a lack of under-center experience could be a real factor.

Here’s the scoop on Hundley.

  • Over 3000 yards passing in each of his three seasons at UCLA
  • 1651 yards rushing in his three seasons combined
  • A rising completion percentage over his career from 66% as a freshman to 70.4% as a junior
  • 28 rushing touchdowns in addition to 74 passing touchdowns with just 25 interceptions
