Recent News reports that sources have indicated UCLA QB Brett Hundley "will fully participate at the combine."
Hundley is the site's No. 3-rated quarterback. Many elite QB prospects in recent years have skipped the scouting combine, preferring to work out at their personal pro days. Hundley is making a good choice to participate, as he bungled an opportunity to play in the Senior Bowl and has serious competition for the No. 3 QB designation. He'll have a nice platform at the combine, as Marcus Mariota might not be able to participate due to a shoulder sprain. Jan 29 - 12:46 AM

ESPN's Todd McShay wrote that "the fact that [UCLA QB Brett Hundley] turned down the chance to participate in the practices and game this week qualifies as a big missed opportunity for him."

Event organizer and former Browns general manager Phil Savage revealed to the media that Hundley was amongst a small group of players who declined his invite by not communicating whether or not he would attend. This behavior has gotten Hundley, ahem, savaged by pundits. "FSU QB Jameis Winston and Mariota are the No. 2 and No. 6 prospects on our board, respectively, but there is a big drop-off after them in this year's quarterback class," McShay wrote. "The battle to be the third-best QB is wide open, and a strong performance this week could have helped Hundley move up draft boards. Moreover, this would have been a good showcase for Hundley. He has good size for the position and good athleticism and arm strength, and he is an accurate passer when throwing to his first read, so he would have likely done well in the one-on-one passing drills in Mobile this week."

One AFC personnel director told NFL Media UCLA QB Brett Hundley "scares me."

NFL Media also spoke with an NFC scout who said Hundley could have solidified his second-round status in Mobile and the quarterback "should have shown up." Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage mentioned Hundley as a prospect teams need to look into a bit more as to why he did not attend the event. Rotoworld's Josh Norris continues to say Hundley is not locked in as the third quarterback in this class.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley declined his Senior Bowl invitation, according to Dane Brugler.

It is believed that Sean Mannion got the nod in Hundley's absence. One more quarterback has yet to be named, and the event certainly has invited Marcus Mariota. We doubt he attends, and our best guess for the replacement would be Auburn's Nick Marshall. Hundley hurt his elbow during the season, but no real reason was given. Scouts have seemingly rewarded quarterbacks who attend the event, namely in taking EJ Manuel over Geno Smith.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler reports that NFL scouts he polled say UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley will go between Rds. 2-5.

"However, some also think he could sneak into that first round because of the raw tools," Brugler wrote. "He doesn't appear in this updated mock draft, but the Houston Texans at No. 16, Philadelphia Eagles at No. 20 or the Dallas Cowboys at No. 27 are three possibilities that can't be ruled out." And what of those raw tools? Hundley rocks a pistol and drives a Lambo, but he holsters at the sound of footsteps and kicks the gas pedal with the sun visor down, oblivious to receivers on the horizon. He cooks from the same recipe as a coterie of busts. That doesn't make Hundley undraftable -- the tools are for real -- but he's not a worthwhile investment on Day 1.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley as a Rds. 2-3 prospect.

We more or less agree with this assessment, though Hundley is a near-lock to go higher than this. We would strongly caution a franchise against using a first-rounder on Hundley. The prospect has a nice arm and good athleticism, but both strengths are greatly mitigated when he's harassed by pass rushers. At that point, Hundley's athleticism, which should be helping him evade defenders as he locates an open receiver, is merely used to escape physical danger in the form of running away. Once his eyes are down, they stay permanently down, which lops the value off of that right arm. CBS ranks Hundley as the No. 43 overall prospect, but the site's draft team thinks he could go higher due to his potential and the lack of depth to the QB class.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley flashed "first round form" in UCLA's 40-35 Alamo Bowl win over Kansas State.

"Hundley showed off the physical traits - and improved poise as a pocket passer - that could have his stock steadily rising as the 2015 draft approaches," Rang wrote. Hundley completed 12-of-24 attempts for 136 yards and a touchdown in the victory, and also rushed for 96 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries. "The manner in which Hundley earned his numbers, however, will catch the attention from scouts," Rang wrote. "Most of Hundley's passes, however, were straight out of an NFL playbook, including deep-outs, posts and slants. Even more impressive than Hundley's accuracy, though, was his improved eye level and poise in a muddied pocket." Rang and his colleagues rank Hundley as the No. 43 overall prospect, but think he could go higher due to his potential and the lack of depth to the QB class. "Because Hundley remains a work-in-progress as a pocket passer, he probably should be selected on Day Two," Rang concluded.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley completed 12 of 24 attempts for 136 yards and a touchdown in the school's 40-35 win over Kansas State.

We always start with passing stats for quarterbacks, but Hundley's greatest contribution was on the ground. A result that is not new. He rushed for 96 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries. There are a few athletic quarterbacks in this class, and Hundley is certainly one. However, he uses his athleticism as a runner rather than a passer. Once his eyes are down they stay down. We do not think that projects well.
Jan 3 - 11:33 AM's Charles Davis writes that there are "still concerns about [UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley's] pocket presence and he could really boost his stock with another year of seasoning."

"Around midseason, I thought coming back to UCLA for another season could be the best thing in the world for Hundley," Davis wrote. "Now, he improved his play, starting with the Oregon game, but I still feel he'd benefit from returning for another season with the Bruins." If we were advising the 6-foot-3, 227-pound Hundley, we'd implore him to return to school. His weaknesses, such as dropping his eyes under pressure and discomfort in the pocket, will be particularly pronounced in the pros. "There's plenty left for him to accomplish in college," Davis wrote. "No doubt, though, he's a great talent." Of course, Bruins HC Jim Mora has already announced Hundley will leave school after it plays in the Alamo Bowl against Kansas State.

NFL scouts will scrutinize UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley's performance in the Alamo Bowl against Kansas State, wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Evaluators may be more interested in Hundley's matchup than in any other individual prospect's. recently ranked Hundley as the No. 1 prospect with the "most on line" during the bowl season. "The UCLA passer has the prototypical physical skill-set for the NFL with his size, athleticism and arm talent, but his inconsistencies reading defenses and handling pressure are two innate deficiencies that make some believe he's a future bust," Brugler wrote. "Facing the Wildcats' defense will be the final true test in a game setting for Hundley to show scouts improvements in those trouble areas." This, of course, will be Hundley's last collegiate game, as UCLA HC Jim Mora has confirmed Hundley will make himself available for the 2015 NFL draft.

Wed, Dec 17, 2014 10:56:00 PM 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.

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.
