Positives: A well built, yet highly athletic, dual-threat quarterback that can throw with velocity. Made a lot of throws under pressure at UCLA. Confidently chucks the ball downfield to covered receivers, giving his surrounding cast opportunities to make plays. Can hit his man in stride with long-range accuracy. Has potential to get the ball out quick on a consistent basis. Ball placement can be special at times, particularly on short passes and in red-zone situations. Feels pressure and is elusive in the pocket. Hundley can hurt defenses with his legs. Scored 106 all-purpose touchdowns in 40 career games (2.65 per game).
Negatives: Holds onto the ball too long at times, until there’s chaos in the pocket. Is very hot and cold as a quarterback. Makes erratic throws, as well as poor decisions. Played predominantly out of the shotgun in his tenure with the Bruins. Questionable field vision. Several big plays of Hundley’s came against defensive breakdowns.
49ers Insider Matt Maiocco's Take: There’s a lot of talent here, but he struggled reading defenses in college and would take time to develop into a backup role.
