His team at NC State wasn't that good either. By the time he got to Wisconson, he had a good team behind him and threw for 72%, 33 TDs with 4 INTs over the course of the season. The Cam Newton comparison is more on par, except Hundley is not nearly as dynamic with his power when he runs. Hundley certainly isn't a run first guy, but he wasn't all that great passing it against a Utah defense. Luckily for them, as they almost lost, they couldn't stop him scrambling.
Color me unimpressed with the one game I saw, but it is only one game. He looks like he needs some time to develop.
About Manziel, the only thing I don't like in regards to scouting him for an NFL QB is that he relies heavily on scrambling around, beating people off foot quickness, and tossing it up for grabs. He does it far too often for me to be comfortable with him. Don't get me wrong, he makes plenty of great throws, but there is some chance to him tossing it up for grabs 2 or 3 times a game.
pretty much spot on with all the assessments.
i'm not too impressed with with Hundley either..he needs to stay & get a little more seasoning b4 he'll be ready imo..I don't think he'll come out anyway....
Manziel to me, needs to be in the right offense for him to succeed. That offense most likely has to be a spread type...the closer it is to an NFL offense, the worse he'd look. I think he'd absolutely kill it in Chip Kelly's offense though...until he got hurt that is.
