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.

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.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "really helped himself by going back" to school, said an anonymous NFC GM.

"Next year is intriguing because all these guys are first-round talents," ESPN NFL analyst Trent Dilfer said. "They have the measurables, but they're also going to be picked apart [by personnel evaluators]." That last statement especially applies to Hundley, who has collected 7,921 total yards and 74 combined TDs in two seasons. "He really helped himself by going back," the NFC general manager said. "He's a great talent, but he's also not a finished product. He would've been in the mix with this year's quarterback prospects, but he'll be higher next year. He has everything you want in a leader." Dilfer described Hundley as "a high-level athlete who has to prove he can be a high-level quarterback." Hundley went No. 16 in ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay's first 2015 mock draft.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley went No. 16 in ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay's first 2015 mock draft.

Hundley nearly declared for the 2014 NFL Draft. Many consider him wise for returning to school, because Hundley must work on his patience, decision making, and placement on the move. Rotoworld's Josh Norris sees Hundley as "extremely overrated" and didn't include the Bruin in his own recent 2015 first-round mock. Hundley has "some improving to do with his throwing ability," according to McShay, but "has all the physical tools to be very good," including "good athleticism and a strong arm."

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley almost declared early for the 2014 NFL Draft.

"There were some times when I could flip a coin and say whether I could stay or go," Hundley said. "Honestly, it was a terrible decision, a hard one, personally. Some days I would wake up and I'd be like, 'All right, I'm out.' But if you count the days where I woke up and said, 'All right, I'm going to stay,' it was a little more than when I said I was gone." Some believe Hundley could be a top 10 pick in the 2015 draft, but Rotoworld's Josh Norris thinks he's "extremely overrated" and didn't include the Bruin in his recent 2015 first-round mock.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley was wise to stay in school, says NFL Films' Greg Cosell.

"When I looked at him last year, I thought he really needed to stay in college, so he did the right thing in my opinion," Cosell said. Hundley threw for 3,071 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions and also rushed for 748 yards and 11 TDs during his sophomore campaign. Teams that don't secure their QB-of-the-future in May's draft have plenty to look forward to in 2015, as Florida State's Jameis Winston, Oregon's Marcus Mariota, and Hundley are each expected to declare early.

UCLA coach Jim Mora tweeted a picture of the Heisman Trophy on Sunday and wrote, "Next name on the plaque... #Hundley4Heisman."

Bruins QB Brett Hundley threw for 3,071 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions and also rushed for 748 yards and 11 TDs during his sophomore season. The junior-to-be won't enter next year as the Heisman favorite, not with Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston returning to Tallahassee for another campaign. Hundley will compete with Oregon QB Marcus Mariota for the Pac 12 spotlight in 2014.

UCLA redshirt sophomore QB Brett Hundley made his return for the 2014 season official during a press conference on Monday.

Hundley added his redshirt junior season would be his last at the collegiate level. He received a second- through fourth-round evaluation from the NFL. "This decision, it was harder than I expected," Hundley said, noting he had to let hype, emotions settle down. The quarterback even called it a "coin flip" at one point.
Jan 6 - 12:40 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports UCLA redshirt sophomore QB Brett Hundley plans on returning to school for his redshirt junior season.

The decision seemed to be 50-50 over the last few weeks, with Hundley's camp reportedly interviewing representation. The truth is Hundley is not ready as a passer, but some team would have likely pounced in the first-round. He will look to improve his patience, decision making, and placement on the move during the 2014 season. We are still waiting on an official decision from Blake Bortles.
Jan 5 - 10:28 AM

UCLA redshirt sophomore QB Brett Hundley completed 16 of 27 attempts for 226 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Tuesday's 42-12 Sun Bowl victory over Virginia Tech.

Hundley did his best work on the ground, rushing for 161 yards and two touchdowns on only 10 attempts. His 86-yard touchdown scamper in the second quarter put the Bruins up for good. We're waiting to hear if this was Hundley's last collegiate game. The draft-eligible sophomore was ranked by "at least two teams" as the top quarterback prospect in the class, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported last week. We'd like to see Hundley return to school to work on his pocket poise and eye level.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted that at least two teams have UCLA redshirt sophomore QB Brett Hundley as the top ranked prospect at the position.

Obviously this factors in Hundley declaring for May's draft, but we are surprised. Hundley looks like the real deal physically, but he lacks poise in the pocket, eye level in the face of pressure, and placement when throwing on the move. Grades at this point in the process are almost solely based on talent, with fit, injury, character and need joining the party later in the process.
