Drafted By: Green Bay Packers
Current Team: Arizona Cardinals
Hundley was drafted by Green Bay Packers in the 5th round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He was looked at as a backup to Aaron Rodgers coming out of UCLA, and at first, that was the case.
However, Hundley got his shot in part to an Aaron Rodgers injury in 2017. But it all amounted to nothing, as Hundley showed why he will remain a backup for the rest of his NFL career.
He went 3-6 as a starter in 2017, throwing 9 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. While finishing the season in the equivalent of extended mop up duty.
The Packers then acquired Deshone Kizer, an ex-Cleveland Brown and 2nd round pick. That signaled the end of Hundley’s time in Green Bay, as the Packers shipped him off to the Seattle Seahawks for a mere 6th round pick
Hundley is now with the Arizona Cardinals as a back up to 2019 #1 overall pick Kyler Murray. Helping Murray with the transition to the NFL, while waiting for another opportunity to get on the field once again.
Drafted By: Denver Broncos
Current Team: New York Jets
Trevor Siemian was an initial afterthought of a 7th round selection by the Denver Broncos. He wad delegated to reserve status during the final years of Peyton Manning, while still continuing to be under the radar after Manning retired.
But in 2017, Siemian won the starting job over then rookie Paxton Lynch. Leading all of us to ask who in the world is this guy?
While Siemian did win the starting job, his play on the field was far from spectacular.
Over the course of 2 seasons, Siemian was a combined 13-11, throwing for 5,686 yards and 30 touchdowns.
He had 24 interceptions, but the interceptions were the least of the problems for the stagnant Broncos offenses in 2016 and 2017.
It was an offense that you wouldn’t want to watch, heck you could’ve even considered it boring. You can only get away with that when your defense is dominant and when playoff time comes.
Neither happened for the Siemian led Broncos.
Siemian was then traded to the Minnesota Vikings, where he backed up Kirk Cousins for a season.
He’s now with the New York Jets, backing up Sam Darnold and helping the young QB in any way he can.
As you can see, the 2015 QB class was pretty underwhelming, outside of the top 2 selected in the first round. In all, only 7 QBs were drafted in 2015, making it the least amount of QBs drafted in one single draft in the common era
You can slander this class all you want, but there are still questions to be answered on the top 2 guys selected overall.
So buckle up.
