2015 NFL Draft: Brett Hundley says 'it would be a dream come true' to play for Arizona Cardinals

The local QB prospect would like to play for Bruce Arians.

It seems certain the Arizona Cardinals will not have a chance to draft either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota in the first round on the 2015 NFL Draft. Those two quarterbacks might be the top two picks overall.

After that, the quarterback position gets a bit murky, especially when you consider what Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is looking for.

One guy who made it very clear he would love to join the Cardinals is UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley.

"That would be awesome. That would be amazing," Hundley told "The Rich Eisen Show." "To go home and play for your hometown team when you grew up not too far away, that would be a dream come true."

Hundley is a Chandler native.

He fits, at least physically, the mold of QB Arians likes. Hundley is 6-3, 226 pounds. He is athletic.

He does not, though, come from an offense where he had to manage snap counts or run a huddle. According to Arians, "that ain't playing quarterback."

That doesn't mean Arizona wouldn't consider him, but it would be tough to take him in the first round. But in the second?

Arizona has a fairly set quarterback situation. Carson Palmer will start and Drew Stanton will be the backup. Then there is Logan Thomas, drafted in the fourth round last year, who is the team's project. The team like his upside.

To take Hundley, or any other quarterback -- especially early in the draft -- would mean they like that player even more than they like Thomas.

Would Hundley be a good match for Arians and his offense? Would you mind seeing the Cardinals take him in the second round if he were available?
