Brett Hundley drawing interest from Chargers, Cardinals

Two NFL teams in two days?

That's the pace this week for former UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley, who according to NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport will go from a visit to the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday to a private workout at UCLA for the San Diego Chargers on Wednesday.

As a talented quarterback but one who needs some time to develop, Hundley could be a nice fit for either club. Both the Chargers and Cardinals have established veteran quarterbacks in Philip Rivers and Carson Palmer, which could give Hundley a needed year or two to learn the one thing scouts and analysts have consistently said he lacks -- awareness and poise in the pocket. In both cases, the veterans' time could be short. Rivers has a forthcoming contract negotiation, which has led to some trade speculation. Palmer is a 13-year veteran recovering from a serious knee injury, and while Palmer is expected to be ready to lead the Cardinals in 2015, questions about his durability will persist.

Hundley, Baylor's Bryce Petty and Colorado State's Garrett Grayson are considered the strongest possibilities to be the third quarterback chosen in the draft, behind presumptive first-round picks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.

The Cardinals could potentially pick up one of the second-tier quarterbacks with a pick at No. 55 (second round), 86 (third round) or 123 (fourth round). The Chargers' picks in the same rounds come at Nos. 48, 83 and 117.
