Dallas has drafted just three quarterbacks in the past 25 years -- Bill Musgrave in 1991, Quincy Carter in 2001 and Stephen McGee in 2009; Carter was a second-rounder, and the other two were fourth-rounders. Hundley looks to be a second- or third-rounder.
Dallas' current backup quarterback is Brandon Weeden, who washed out in Cleveland after being a first-round pick in 2012.
Hundley (6-foot-3, 226 pounds) racked up a school-record 11,677 total yards and threw a school-record 75 TD passes. He is a good athlete with a nice arm and is adept at running the read-option. But he lacks awareness and poise in the pocket and takes a ton of sacks for a guy with his mobility. That he hasn't shown he can be a pocket passer should scare the Cowboys and most NFL teams. Can he become one? Certainly. And if he does end up in Dallas, he likely would have at least a year or two to sit and learn about being an NFL quarterback.
Among Hundley's other recent visits: Arizona, Cincinnati, Houston, the New York Jets, Philadelphia and San Diego.
While Romo's increasing age likely causes some angst in the Cowboys' front office, quarterback is not necessarily a need position in this draft. Cornerback, running back and help on the defensive front are the top three needs, and taking Hundley -- or any quarterback -- on the first two days of the draft obviously would lessen the chances of Dallas getting an instant-impact rookie at the other positions.
