Green Bay Packers quarterbacks are some of the most durable in the NFL. Bart Starr led the team to two Super Bowl victories, then the Brett Favre era transferred to the Aaron Rodgers era, creating stability at the most important position for a quarter century. That stability is going to force the Packer's hand in terms of backup quarterback Brett Hundley, who may be traded by the team.

Dealing the quarterback

Hundley was drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers. Since then, he has played sparingly, owing to the durability and prestige of the man in front of him in the depth chart, Rodgers.

That being said, he has had some solid moments during his rookie season, but didn't see the field much in his sophomore season due to an ankle injury.

Hundley is still a relative unknown, but he has the physical presence and possesses the strong fundamentals that is needed of a serviceable quarterback in today's NFL. His trade value may never be higher for Green Bay than it is today - and with several teams either in need of a quarterback, or getting to the point where they need to start developing one - the Packers will be looking to use this to their advantage. The Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears, and Buffalo Bills may all be willing to give up a decent draft pick for the chance to find their next franchise quarterback.

College star, professional mystery

The credentials of Hundley at the college level are hard to question. The highly-hyped prospect went to UCLA and carried the Bruins to two Pac-12 South division championships. He himself was named to the All-Pac 12 Second Team in 2014 during his redshirt junior year.

Many expected him to be drafted in the first few rounds, but he slipped all the way to the fifth round before being picked up by the Packers. Although he has shown maturity off the field, he has thrown just ten meaningful passes during the regular season on the field, good for two completions and an interception.

Given his current performance, acquiring Hundley would be a risk, but it is a risk many NFL teams need to take if they want to be competitive at the most important position in the sport.
