Recent News ranks UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley as the No. 1 prospect with the "most on line" during the bowl season.
Last week, UCLA HC Jim Mora confirmed that Hundley will make himself available for the 2015 NFL draft, telling the media that Jan. 2's Alamo Bowl against Kansas State would be his last collegiate game. "He might be among the most divisive players scouts will look at over the coming months -- some scouts see star potential, others see a potential bust," wrote Bryan Fischer. "His last performance was a clunker against a good Stanford defense, costing his team a trip to the Pac-12 title game, so pressure is on to prove he's making the right decision to come out with a good game against a solid Kansas State team." Rotoworld sees the 6-foot-3, 227-pound Hundley not as an elite prospect, but a developmental investment. He will get picked higher than we think he ought to. Dec 14 - 2:58 PM

UCLA HC Jim Mora confirmed that redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley will make himself available for the 2015 NFL draft.

"This will be his last game as a UCLA Bruin," Mora said, referring to the Jan. 2 Alamo Bowl versus Kansas State. "I don’t know that he’s announced it yet, but we all know that’s the case. I’d like him to go out with a successful game." In other Hundley news, Mora said the QB's injured finger, sustained in the loss to Stanford, is "fine." The 6-foot-3, 227-pound Hundley, frankly, could use another year in school. While scouts have finally come off the opinion that he's a top-five talent, it seems a lock that Hundley will be drafted no later than the second round. We wouldn't make that type of investment in a player who is inconsistent in the pocket but consistent in dropping his eyes in the face of pressure, two indicators of an NFL bust. Of course, Hundley has physical tools, and he did just post 3,567 yards of offense and 29 touchdowns in 12 games -- one front office is going to talk themselves into pulling the trigger with a premium selection.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that after "talking to scouts around the league, most see" UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "as a second-round type of player."

"Talking to scouts around the league, most see Hundley as a second-round type of player. But his natural tools are so appealing that it wouldn't be a surprise to see him land in the first round," Brugler wrote. Many evaluators have suggested Hundley return to school for one more year to refine his skills in the pocket. Hundley has consistently dropped his eyes when forced off his spot in the face of pressure. Brugler adds that Hundley "will likely be an attractive player after Mariota and Winston, assuming both declare, are off the board."

Bob McGinn spoke with one NFL scout who believes UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley will be a bust.

"He's one of those guys who seems to lock in right away. His shortcoming is accuracy," the scout said. Some will point to Hundley's 70.4 completion percentage as a rebuttal, however, many of those throws are within seven yards of the line of scrimmage. Our biggest beef with Hundley is how he consistently drops his eyes when forced off his spot in the face of pressure.

Speaking with Rich Eisen, UCLA head coach Jim Mora Jr. said he is sure redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft.

"I think he's ready to do that. I mean, he's done what he can do at UCLA," Mora said. "You know, he's an unfinished product right now, but that's what everybody is going into the league, and I think he's going to be a really fine NFL quarterback." The news is not surprising, but some evaluators have suggested Hundley return for another year to refine his pocket success. He really has not improved in recent weeks, even though some might say he has.
Dec 2 - 10:44 AM

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley completed 17 of 32 attempts for 146 yards and a touchdown in the school's 31-10 loss to Stanford.

Hundley's opening drive went as the script said, consistently hitting his first read off his back foot for a touchdown series. Things went downhill after that. Hundley might have one of the top completions percentages in the country, but factor in the team's offense and how often he is asked to hit passes under seven yards. Hundley did exit halfway through the fourth quarter near the goal line due to injury.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley was named by ESPN's Todd McShay as the draft's biggest QB faller this season.

"He hasn't regressed; he just hasn't progressed as much as I expected, even considering the strong showing against USC this past Saturday," McShay wrote. "Hundley still has ideal size (6-3, 226), mobility and arm strength, and the junior is making plays with his feet again (444 rush yards/6 TDs in past six games versus 122/2 in first five). But instead of a first-rounder, he's now seen as a developmental QB who must improve accuracy, decision-making and pocket presence to be a starter." We remain pessimistic about Hundley's pro prospects. He's highly mobile and effective in the short-to-intermediate passing game. A winning collegiate formula, yes, but he often ignores downfield receivers because his eyes have dropped under pressure. That isn't a winning pro formula.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley told Jim Rome "there is a really good chance" last weekend's win was his last versus USC.

"The conversation keep coming up. I’ve got my degree," Hundley said during the interview. "I’ve done everything I wanted to do here. I’ve left something really, truly great, and I feel good. That’s probably my last one against USC." This is not a surprise, but many evaluators have suggested Hundley return to school for one more year to refine his skills in the pocket.

ESPN's Todd McShay wrote that it's "all starting to click" for UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley.

Hundley completed 22-of-31 attempts for 326 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 38-20 win over USC. Despite the gaudy stats, which included a rushing score, we weren't impressed by his performance, aided greatly by repeated foibles of USC's secondary. Pro Football Focus agreed, giving Hundley a -2.4 grade for the performance. Even still, there's no denying Hundley's Major League tools.
Nov 24 - 11:29 PM's Bucky Brooks believes "scouts are struggling" to determine which grade to place on UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "after watching him steadily improve since the middle of the season."

Brooks thinks Hundley "has been arguably the best player in college football" since his disappointing performance against Utah (10 sacks). In leading UCLA to a 5-1 record over its last six games, Hundley has completed 71.6 percent of his passes for 1,563 yards and a 11/3 TD/INT ratio to go with 444 rushing yards and six touchdowns. "From an evaluation standpoint, Hundley remains a work in progress as a pocket passer," Brooks wrote. "He continues to occasionally misfire on vertical routes down the boundary; his anticipation and timing on intermediate throws isn't quite at an elite level. But he has been more decisive and efficient playing from the pocket in recent weeks. From getting the ball out of his hands quicker on short and intermediate throws to making quicker decisions to flee the pocket, Hundley's improved decisiveness has allowed him to better exploit the vulnerable areas of the defense."

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley was awarded a -2.4 grade from Pro Football Focus for his performance against USC.

Many will frown upon this assessment, since Hundley completed 22 of 31 attempts for 326 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the game. We noted how easy so many throws were and that many targets were to screen passes or run after catch situations. " all honesty, Hundley didn’t have to do a whole lot to get some of the biggest gains, owing far more to his receivers or AWOL coverage from USC," Sam Monson writes.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley completed 22 of 31 attempts for 326 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the school's 38-20 win over USC.

He added another rushing touchdown. The box score looks outstanding, but anyone who watched the game could see it was fabricated from a passing standpoint thanks to broken coverages. We saw Hundley make one or two positive plays, in terms of sticking to the pocket and looking downfield. However, a respectable touchdown throw was made to a wide open receiver in the middle of the field with zero pressure up front and a large portion of the passing yards were created after the catch by receivers. All in all, this game showed us nothing we do not already know.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley was compared by an area scout to former Jaguar David Garrard.

"I feel bad for him, because everyone hyped him up so much in the preseason, it was like he had to play at a (Marcus) Mariota-type level or he'd be a failure," the AFC area scout told Site columnist Albert Breer notes on-field improvement for Hundley, but doesn't believe it will be enough to get him into Round 1 or 2 in the spring. "He has very good size and athletic ability, but he struggles reading things and throwing with accuracy," an AFC scouting director said. Hundley has a crucial matchup this Saturday, taking on USC's pro-style defense.
Nov 21 - 4:22 PM

Three NFL scouts expressed their reservations with QB Brett Hundley's professional projection.

"We need to see better accuracy from him, especially throwing from the pocket," scout No. 1 said. "He tends to hold on to the ball too long, and he's not as quick going through his progression as he should be at this stage of his career. … I think he relies on his feet at times to bail him out." Scout No. 2 questioned if sitting behind an NFL starter during his first year would be more beneficial than returning to UCLA for one more season. Scout No. 3 praised Hundley's dual-threat capabilities and placed him in the late first- to second-round range.

Scouts still want to see UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "operate better from the pocket, especially under duress," notes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"He has done a better job tucking and picking up yards with his legs when the pocket breaks down, but in order for him to be successful in the NFL, scouts still want to see him operate better from the pocket, especially under duress," Brugler writes. The UCLA prospect came into this season as one the top quarterback prospects in the country, but his junior season has been quite inconsistent. Brugler believes Hundley's "lack of pocket presence and struggles with pressure are still a major concern."
