Brett Hundley could be set to go in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft if he was to declare. And now it looks like he will be represented by Jay Z when he gets there.
According to reports from Forbes and Inside The League, Hundley is "a lock" to sign with Roc Nation Sports for his marketing representation. There is also a strong possibility that the UCLA Bruins quarterback will be offered a $1million dollar guarantee to make the agreement concrete.
Hundley is currently a redshirt junior and had a very solid start to the season, even if the players around him and on defense haven't quite lived up to their blue chip status, he has. has completed 72.2% of his passes thus far this season, with 1,526 yards in the air through six games. It is shaping up to be his best statistical season to date.
Roc Nation currently have several National Football League players already among their roster of talent. New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith is represented by the group contract wise and in marketing, whilst Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, Lions D-tackle Ndamukong Suh, and Hakeem Nicks are represented in purely marketing endeavours.
NFLDraftScout.com Senior Analyst Rob Rang currently has Hundley just outside his top thirty-two NFL prospects in college football. A widely held belief is that had Hundley declared for the draft last year he would have easily been a first round pick, comfortably being taken before Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel.
But if Hundley makes himself eligible in 2015 he will have to do a lot this season to get ahead of Top 10 certainties Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston, as well as Michigan State passer Connor Cook who is rocketing up every draft board nationwide.
We will have to wait and see if Hundley and the Bruins can improve to a sufficient enough standard where they will be among the four playoff teams with Hundley being back in Top 10 contention come draft time.
