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.
