    Clearly, the NFL is more willing to invest higher picks in more athletic players at the quarterback position. No longer is athleticism being seen as something that solely heightens the risk for injury, but rather a complementary skill that can become vital for determining a player's success.

    One player who is hoping to benefit from this newfound approach is UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley.

    Through two seasons as a starter in college football, Hundley has 849 pass attempts for 6,811 yards and 24 touchdowns, with 320 rushing attempts for 1,103 yards and 20 touchdowns. He appears to be a borderline first round talent whose stock is less certain than Marcus Mariota of Oregon or Jameis Winston of Florida State.

    Hundley isn't a dual-threat quarterback in the fashion of Cam Newton or Johnny Manziel, two players who rushed for over 1,400 yards in single seasons of college football. However he does have enough quickness, vision and strength to project forward as an effective scrambler on the next level.

    I think he has a big season and his stock rises.

    I think Brett Hundley's ability is similar to Aaron Rodgers in that, he's not going to be a runner, but if he has to or the space is there in front of him, he certainly can.

    I don't particularly like Hundley, but he could certainly change that with a good year.

    I agree. I watched him a couple times last year and he seems solid and I think he'll have a pretty good year that will get people putting a higher grade on him by seasons end.

    Unless he is the prototype pocket passer I don't want him.

    Brett Hundley | Quarterback
    Team: UCLA Bruins
    Age / DOB: (21) / 6/15/1993
    Ht / Wt: 6'3' / 210

    TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline allotted UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley a second-round grade.
    "Let the outrage commence!" he joked on Twitter. Hundley is perhaps the most polarizing preseason "elite" draft prospect. Some see a future franchise quarterback -- CBS Sports' Rob Rang tossed out a Randall Cunningham comparison last month -- worthy of a top 10 selection. Others, such as Pauline and Rotoworld's Josh Norris, see an intriguing developmental prospect unworthy of such an investment at this time. Hundley could drag the latter group to enlightenment by becoming a Heisman candidate this season, or he could force Rang and others off the bandwagon if he continues to make unforgivable mistakes under duress.
