With the 147th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers have selected UCLA Bruin quarterback Brett Hundley! WOTT, WOTT! There was much anticipation for the Bruin’s all-time leader in touchdown passes and total offense after not being selected in the first four rounds, but there was much excitement when the 3-time Destroyer of Troy heard his name called with the 11th pick of the 5th round.

At 6’3″, 226 lbs., the Packers are getting a special athlete, though some of his skills need some developing. He has a decent arm, he can use his legs when needed and is a born leader. Though he may not start for the Packers for a while, given that Super Bowl winning champion Aaron Rodgers is the current incumbent who should be holding onto that position for a few more years, Hundley is in a really good place.
What this gives Hundley is experience with one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL as well as development under the tutelage of head coach Mike McCarthy and his staff. He will be taught by Super Bowl Champions!
Congratulations, Mr. Hundley, you are a Green Bay Packer!
