Seattle Seahawks Team Injury Report
Hundley has only appeared in four regular season games since being selected in the fifth round of the 2015 draft, which is hardly an issue for Packers fans and fantasy players who have owned Aaron Rodgers the last two seasons. His path to the starting job is clearly blocked in Green Bay, but Hundley is an intriguing prospect who could be an attractive option to a team looking for quarterback help for next year and beyond. He is the clear favorite to remain Rodgers' backup in 2017, though he could be pushed by fellow reserve Joe Callahan.
Hundley is head coach Mike McCarthy's secret project. The 6-foot-3, 226-pound physical specimen fell to the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and the Packers pounced on the high-upside prospect from UCLA. He didn't utter a single cadence in 2015 while serving as the third-string quarterback, but with a year of McCarthy's tutelage now under his belt, and incumbent backup Scott Tolzien elsewhere, Hundley enters 2016 as Green Bay's top reserve behind starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Hundley is perhaps the greatest unknown of the rookie quarterbacks. He completed 67.6 percent of his passes with 8.04 YPA and a 75:25 TD:INT ratio during his three years at UCLA, plus he has the size (6-3, 227) and athleticism (4.63 40, 10-foot broad jump, 36-inch vertical leap) to be a dual-threat quarterback (30 rushing touchdowns) as his elusiveness makes him a nightmare for defenses once he breaks the pocket. But while Hundley has the arm to push the ball downfield and outside the hashes, he struggles with accuracy and ball placement on deep throws, resulting in passes that repeatedly sail high. His instincts in the pocket are an even greater concern, as he tends to hold the ball too long and often locks onto his primary receiver rather than working through progressions. Playing behind Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay is the perfect situation for a high-ceiling, developmental QB like Hundley.
