Marquis Hundley
6-0/178 Arizona
4.45 Senior

Pros: Shows nice ball skills and closing speed on the ballcarrier. Willing in run support, lowering the shoulder and delivering the hit. Has nice hands for a defensive back. Does his best work when facing QB and keeping things in front of him.

Cons: Undersized, and it shows both when he's facing bigger wideouts and in run support. Not a great tackler and doesn't consistently wrap. Has just OK hips and lacks burst out of his breaks. Lacks ideal speed and struggles in man coverage. Will give up too much cushion at times.

Overview: Hundley was a one-year starter who was tasked with filling some of the void left by Wilrey Fontenot and Antoine Cason this year. He did a nice job. He's better than Fontenot, but not nearly in Cason's range of ability.

NFL Forecast: Hundley could be a nice option on the bench for some zone team. But the upper end of his potential is that of a nickel back, not a starter. If he can impact early on special teams, then he can stick around. He'll work hard, but is physically limited for the next level, which is usually the classic description of a special teams guy.

ATL Forecast: The Falcons liked Fontenot last year, and so it would make sense if they also liked Hundley, who is a better player. But regardless, Hundley isn't going to do much on the Falcons roster as a backup. He'll push David Irons for the role as backup that plays exclusively on special teams, but he lacks long-term upside.

Value: Hundley might be worth a seventh round pick, but fits more as the type of player that gets undrafted. For a zone-heavy team looking for some depth, might draft him in Round 7.
