Hundley begins his first test this season Saturday noon on ESPN against Virginia-

Quote:
Over the past two seasons, RS junior QB Brett Hundley (6-3 | 227 | 4.64 | #17) has flashed outstanding NFL potential with the natural tools pro scouts look for at the position. Is this the season he takes the next step in his development? Time will tell and it starts with an underrated road test in Charlottesville. Senior SS Anthony Harris (6-1 | 190 | 4.57 | #8) is a ballhawking safety and ranks as one of the top safety prospects in all of college football. He and junior DE Eli Harold (6-4 | 235 | 4.73 | #7) are Virginia's top prospects on defense.

As someone who grew up a UVA fan, and still cheer for them against anyone but Carolina, calling Virginia a test may be a bit of a stretch.

I agree that, as a team, it shouldn't be that tough of a test. They do have some NFL talent on defense though. Eli Harold (DE) had a fantastic year last year and could be a 1st or 2nd round draft pick if he continues his development. They have some decent LB's as well and Harris (S) and Nicholson (CB) will likely get drafted.

Also, stud freshmen Andrew Brown (DT) and Quin Blanding (S) will be making their debuts. Brown may have a tough transition to college as an interior D-Lineman, but I expect Blanding to be pretty good right off the bat.

They have talent on offense as well with Parks, Mizzell, Jennings, and Johnson and they have put a few OL into the league the last few years. Really the biggest problem for UVA is their QB play has been downright atrocious for the last decade. Teams can get away with poor QB play if they have a great defense and a solid running game. But UVA doesn't a great defense they have a solid one. And they don't have poor QB play, it's been disastrous.

I'm not sure if this is process of hyperbole development, laying foundation among fellow draft clones or just passing of another College Football season, but invariably in the end, we wind up thinking a whole lot more about prospects when tape & game film are fresh in one's mind. In my own mind having watched College players over the years Brett Hundley's comp is Colin Kaepernick. I just don't want to see another one just slip by the Texans
On this board,I think many would draft QB with every 1st round pick so there would be 32 QBs taken every year.

Default Re: Brett Hundley

Just finished watching and grading Hundley vs Virginia. Hundley is this year what he was last year, not a very good QB. This year like last year Hundley is not a Top 10 college QB. Needs to return to school in 2015. A very poor man's Duante Culpepper.

Hundley does not see the field well. He has poor footwork and his accuracy is terrible. Hundley only has a so - so arm. Hundley holds the ball way to long that leads to unnecessary sacks. Hundley does not handle pressure well and as a result drops his eyes. Hundley is a threat to run and does make good decisions when he runs the ball.

UCLA - #94 Odighizuwa; #30 Jack and #6 Kendrick played an excellent game. They're a very quick and athletic. All 3 are Sunday players. Without their play and efforts Virginia wins the game. Final score was UCLA 28 - Virginia 20 and the UCLA Defense scored 21 points.

Default Re: Brett Hundley

I agree. I did not see much progression (if any) from last year. He struggled when faced with pressure and drops his eyes too often. He made a couple of really good 3rd down throws when under pressure, but they were few and far between. Very inconsistent performance.

Now, granted, his OL was pretty darn bad but if you're going to be a top pick at QB then you need to rise above that. He really struggled with the pressure UVA brought his way today. I still like him personally, but he still has a long way to go.

With all that said I have to say I was pretty impressed with Virginia's defense. They played very aggressive. I love Jon Tenuta's approach to defense. He may get burnt occasionally but he is going to come after you. I love that kind of defensive approach.

Default Re: Brett Hundley

I'm not going to make any excuses for his first game of season, continuous develop performance.

What I liked:

brings physical presence
Looks to throw first in pocket
Goes through progressions
Improved his arm strength

What I didn't like:

Footwork
Accuracy
Needs a quicker release
Pre-snap reads, check offs

Hundley makes his OL look worse than it is. Hundley is slow to process all the information needed to make quick decisions.

He's always looked like a lumbering giant to me.

He definitely held the ball too long and was hesitant making his reads, but there were quite a few plays where he was getting the snap and had guys already in the backfield. UCLA had 2 OL starters out for this game and were already trying to break in 2 new starters. They got stronger later in the game and were able to establish the run a little bit in the 2nd half.

Will be interested to see how Hundley looks later in the year with a more cohesive OL in front of him. He still has a lot of work to do though. He looked eerily similar to last year with not a lot of progression being made in the passing game. Very quick to pull the ball down and rely on his legs.

I understand all this and the problems with his OL. That's why you would expect him to check down. With Hundley it appears he has one predetermined read and it's throw it, run it or take a sack. Honestly I don't know if Hundley knows if his receivers are facing man or zone. And the next safety he looks off will be the first safety he looks off.

Watching FSU/OKST and LSU/WISC while waiting to watch Mariota.

I agree about checking down but they don't really use a TE at all and I didn't see the RB going out all that much. I also didn't see any hots or audibles. That one 4th down play they had tons of room over the middle to throw a slant and the guy ran an out. Hundley double clutched and took a sack. Seems like a fundamental flaw in the offense. If you're going to rely on your QB that much then it seems natural that you would give him more control.

I think we're on the same page here though. Not where you would expect him to be mentally or mechanically.

Was only able to see the first half but agree with evals above. He dropped out of first round on my board but it is only one game. Did not see much out of the Virginia safety Harris either.

Hundley looked terrible. I didn't see him play last year, but this first game I watched him play left me wondering what the hype was about. He looks like a c or d level player.

People around here are so desperate for a QB that they had about 8 of them graded as first round picks in the last draft.

Hundley was a project last year and needed to go back to school. Looks like the same exact player right now. No growth over the spring and summer. He better improve over the season or he'll be in college again next year.
