ESPN's Todd McShay believes UCLA redshirt junior Brett Hundley "made a wise decision to return for the 2014 season."
"He has all the physical tools to develop into a good NFL starter, but he's still a work in progress," McShay wrote. "He shows very good toughness and intangibles. His arm strength is a notch below elite, which means it's more than good enough to make all the NFL throws. He also showed improved mechanics in 2013 and flashes the ability to make accurate throws on all three levels when on time and in rhythm." McShay ranked Hundley as his No. 3 QB -- behind Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston -- which is pretty much the industry consensus at the moment. "The flashes are encouraging, but it's not enough," he continued. "Specifically, Hundley needs to show improved touch and become more reliable when throwing off-platform. While he is a good athlete with size, strength and deceptive top-end speed, he needs to do much better at managing the pocket, including showing better patience and keeping his eyes up when facing pressure."

The Senior Bowl has released their watch list of over 350 prospects for 2015's event.

The usual (senior) prospects are obviously included, but we are more interested in the redshirt juniors who are mentioned on the list. Phil Savage, the event's executive director, was able to alter the rules of players eligible for the Senior Bowl, allowing fourth year juniors that will graduate by December to qualify. Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota and UCLA Brett Hundley are two listed.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes UCLA redshirt junior Brett Hundley has the potential to overtake Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston if he continues to improve.

"Hundley could play the Blake Bortles role and overtake both of them if the steady improvement he's made as a pocket passer the past two years continues in 2014," Rang wrote. Despite only having played two seasons, Hundley ranks third in UCLA history in passing yards (6,811) and touchdown passes (53). If he surpasses 3,828 passing yards this season, Hundley will pass Cade McNown as the Bruins' all-time leader.

UCLA redshirt junior Brett Hundley needs to "continue to make the plays within the pocket, throwing the football and reading defenses," according to UCLA alum Troy Aikman.

"What does he have an opportunity this year to work on, or things that will help him as he moves on to the next level?' You've heard me and others say it a million times: He's a tremendous, athletically gifted quarterback, but just to continue to make the plays within the pocket, throwing the football and reading defenses," Aikman said. The Bruins prospect ranks third in UCLA history in passing yards (6,811) and touchdown passes (53). Hundley needs to pass for 3,828 yards this season to pass Cade McNown as the Bruins' all-time leader in yards, and need 16 touchdowns to pass McNown as the Bruin's leader.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks calls UCLA redshirt junior Brett Hundley a "heady quarterback with the arm talent and athleticism to terrorize opponents with his playmaking ability."

"He has a strong arm and he can extend plays with his athleticism. He deserves a lot of credit for the turnaround in Westwood," Daniel Jeremiah added. The NFL.com staff ranked Hundley as college football's No. 13 overall player. Charles Davis believes Hundley has an "exquisite combination of size, speed, arm, and smart."

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "has to show he can play more relaxed and be more consistent," according to NFL Media analyst Charles Davis.

"This Bruins team has huge aspirations this season. They expect to contend for the Pac-12 title and a spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff. If they're going to reach that goal, Hundley has to show he can play more relaxed and be more consistent," Davis wrote. Davis notes that last season he thought Hundley "pressed a little at times and tried to do too much." Our own Josh Norris has not put Hundley in the top tier of quarterback prospects.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline writes that two NFL scouts agreed with his second-round grade on UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley.

In fact, "one is of the opinion he’s a third round passer," the analyst wrote. This isn't a terribly popular opinion, though Rotoworld's Josh Norris, for one, also places Hundley outside of the top-tier of 2015 QB prospects. "Hundley most definitely has first round potential but needs to turn from thrower to passer," Pauline wrote. "The information he received all last season from scouts was to return for one more year of college ball and Hundley should be applauded for heeding their recommendations."

NFL Media Analyst Bucky Brooks believes that redshirt junior Brett Hundley "must improve his deep-ball accuracy in 2014."

"Hundley must improve his deep-ball accuracy in 2014. He missed too many downfield shots on fades and go-routes down the boundary a season ago. His balls repeatedly sailed out of bounds on those throws, which prevented the Bruins from cashing in on several home-run opportunities," Brooks wrote. If the 6-foot-3, 210 Hundley wants to secure a top spot in the 2015 QB draft class, he'll have to make a huge improvement on his accuracy. Our own Josh Norris has not put Hundley in the top tier of quarterback prospects.

UCLA head coach Jim Mora Jr. hopes the NFL does not use black QB stereotypes with redshirt junior Brett Hundley.

"People have a tendency at times to see an African-American quarterback and say, 'Oh, he’s a runner.' I hate that stereotype and I always have," said Mora. "I don’t want that to happen with Brett, and I’m going to make sure that it doesn't, because it shouldn't. The guy’s a passer." Hundley has had plenty of passing responsibilities at UCLA, and while the statistics have been kind, we see plenty of room for improvement on tape. Specifically, Hundley needs to show pocket awareness more often, improve his accuracy when on the move, and stop dropping his eye level when moved off his spot.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline allotted UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley a second-round grade.

"Let the outrage commence!" he joked on Twitter. Hundley is perhaps the most polarizing preseason "elite" draft prospect. Some see a future franchise quarterback -- CBS Sports' Rob Rang tossed out a Randall Cunningham comparison last month -- worthy of a top 10 selection. Others, such as Pauline and Rotoworld's Josh Norris, see an intriguing developmental prospect unworthy of such an investment at this time. Hundley could drag the latter group to enlightenment by becoming a Heisman candidate this season, or he could force Rang and others off the bandwagon if he continues to make unforgivable mistakes under duress.
Jul 8 - 8:17 PM

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes UCLA QB Brett Hundley compares to a "young Randall Cunningham."

"Hundley looks the part with a tall, well-built frame and a quick set-up and delivery of the football. He has a terrific arm that can easily make any NFL throw. He is a dynamic athlete with vision and poise with the elusiveness and speed to turn short scrambles into long gains, like the 72-yard jaunt for a touchdown on his first snap in a UCLA uniform (Rice, 2012)," Rang wrote. If the dual-threat prospect can improve his pocket presence, ball placement and build on his ability to read defenses, he has a great opportunity to solidify his first-round draft stock in 2015.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes it was a wise decision for UCLA QB Brett Hundley to return for his redshirt junior season.

Hundley has "ideal physical tools but (there is) still plenty of room for improvement (with) pocket awareness/presence." Poise and patience is Hundley's biggest issue, and when moved of his spot the quarterback tends to not see the entire field. Mel Kiper recently praised Hundley's "smart" pocket movement, but we can't get on the same page. Plenty of development is needed.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "is a smart pocket mover."

"He might have the best arm in this draft class, and I think he's a smart pocket mover with a sense of when to climb to evade pressure," Kiper adds. "He just needs to be better with ball placement, where he can be pretty inconsistent." We think there are more areas where Hundley needs to improve, namely with eye level when moved off his spot to go along with poise and patience while remaining in the pocket.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley's footwork "is not crisp," according to NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah.

This statement was a conclusion from watching Hundley's 24 touchdown tosses last year. "Not much post-snap reading," Jeremiah tweeted. "Ball gets out quick, plenty of velocity." Rotoworld's Josh Norris has not put Hundley in the top tier of quarterback prospects despite many placing the Bruin in that category.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes UCLA redshirt junior Brett Hundley has a chance to "push his way into the conversation as the top QB" in the 2015 draft class.

"I think ball placement is a key area for him, but he's got a great feel for the pocket and has outstanding footwork," Kiper writes. "The arm is also really good. The tools are there..." Hundley is ranked as the No. 16 overall prospect on the initial list. We do not feel the same, as Hundley needs far more work than often mentioned. He is erratic and tended to make poor decisions when pressured.
