CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that if UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "continues to play at this high of a level, he will have a legitimate chance to contend for the top pick overall."

"He was already thought of as a possible top-10 pick due to his natural tools, but if Hundley continues to play at this high of a level, he will have a legitimate chance to contend for the top pick overall," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound Hundley rushed for 72 yards and a score, while completing 18 of 23 attempts for 355 yards and four touchdowns in the school's 62-27 win over Arizona State. Brugler calls Hundley's performance versus Arizona State "his best outing as a collegiate player."

CBS Sports' Rob Rang noted that he saw "flashes of improvement" with UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley's eye-discipline and poise.

Hundley's athleticism and talent are evident, but there remain nagging questions regarding his poise and concentration as an NFL prospect. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that Hundley was "terrific" in Saturday's blowout win. Rang also noted that Hundley was continuing to improvement in his eye-discipline and poise, avoiding his tendency to dance out of the pocket at the first sign of trouble. Rang specifically cited a moment in the second quarter where Hundley avoided pressure and then reset his eyes downfield for a long completion. Even with the questions regarding Hundley's tendency to cut and run when the going gets tough, his athletic promise and build should make him an early-to-mid first round.

After UCLA's blowout win on Saturday, CBS Sports Rob Rang noted that UCLA senior LB Eric Kendricks "diagnoses the action very quickly"

Kendricks was "all over the field" on Saturday. CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that Kendricks reminds him somewhat of older brother Mychal Kendricks, who currently plays for the Philadelphia Eagles. Baby brother doesn't have Mychal's explosive athleticism, but CBS Sports has him ranked him as the number two linebacker on the board because he "diagnoses the action very quickly and is very aggressive" on the field.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that UCLA redshirt junior QB Hundley "needs to build off last night's progress and sustain that success, especially dealing with pressure."

"Hundley was very impressive. But the key for him is to build off last night's progress and sustain that success, especially dealing with pressure," Brugler tweeted. Hundley, did not disappoint versus Arizona State and had a solid outing Thursday night. The UCLA prospects' biggest concern is that he tends to keep his eyes down once evading the rush in the pocket. If Hundley continues to improve in this area, and have continued success moving forward, it could definitely help his stock with draft evaluators.

UCLA junior CB Ishmael Adams "agility and speed as a returner could be enough to warrant draft consideration, despite his diminutive frame," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"At just 5-8, 185 pounds, Adams obviously lacks the size scouts are looking for and he ranks 39th on NFLDraftScout.com's early 2016 CB rankings. His agility and speed as a returner could be enough to warrant draft consideration, despite his diminutive frame," Rang wrote. Adams returned an interception for a touchdown, returning it to the house for 95 yards at the end the first half. During the third quarter, Adams returned a kick for 100-yards for another touchdown.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes UCLA redshirt junior QB Hundley showed "flashes of improvement" versus Arizona State Thursday night "with his eye-discipline and poise."

"His numbers were certainly enhanced by a pair of 80-yard catch and runs from receivers Jordan Payton and Eldridge Massington, respectively but Hundley showed flashes of improvement Thursday night with his eye-discipline and poise, two areas that he'd previously struggled with," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound Hundley rushed for 72 yards and a score, while completing 18 of 23 attempts for 355 yards and four touchdowns in the school's 62-27 win over Arizona State. Rang adds that, "Hundley is a remarkable athlete with the flexibility and light feet to make defenders miss in tight quarters."

UCLA junior CB Ishmael Adams returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and returned an interception for a 95 yard touchdown in the school's 62-27 win over Arizona State.

It wasn't just the one kick return where Adams shined, as he average 40 yards on five run backs. The junior emerged as a starting corner last season and is carrying out that responsibility again this year. Adams displayed obvious speed and even tackling breaking balance.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Hundley completed 18 of 23 attempts for 355 yards and four touchdowns in the school's 62-27 win over Arizona State.

Hundley added another touchdown on 72 rushing yards. After hurting his left elbow two weeks ago, Hundley wore a arm brace but showed no ill-effects throughout the game. The numbers are absolutely eye popping and the tape certainly was not a disappointment. After the top two quarterbacks, every passing prospect has glaring issues. For Hundley, he tends to keep his eyes down once evading the rush in the pocket. However, he has skills that teams will want to work with.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley will start against Arizona State on Thursday night.

Hundley suffered a slight hyper extension of his left, non-throwing elbow 12 days ago against Texas. He returned to practice this past week, but HC Jim Mora has been sparse with notes about his progress, so it's anyone's guess as to whether Hundley is 100-percent. Across the field, Taylor Kelly has been ruled out, so backup Mike Bercovici will get the start versus the Bruins. Hundley, whose offensive line has struggled this year, is 57-of-81 for 686 yards with three touchdowns and one interception this year.

UCLA junior DB Randall Goforth will have surgery on both shoulders and miss the remainder of the season.

Goforth separated his right shoulder against Memphis on September 6 after previously separating his left one. Beat writer Chris Foster says Goforth is expected to be out until next fall. Sophomore Tahaan Goodman started in Goforth's place against Texas.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley has returned to practice, but HC Jim Mora has thus far refused to address his availability for Thursday's huge game against Arizona State.

Hundley suffered a "slight" hyper extension last Saturday against Texas and was forced out of the second half. "All of our players who are out, what we try to do is make the best decisions for them based upon the knowledge we have," Mora said. "We depend on our doctors to get us good information, and we got the best doctors in the nation in my opinion. If they clear him, and they say he can play, just like everyone else, then we’ll play him." Hundley is 57-of-81 for 686 yards with three touchdowns and one interception this year. If he can't go, the Bruins will turn to backup Jerry Neuheisel, who completed 23-of-30 passes for 178 yards with two touchdowns against the Longhorns.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley arrived at practice on Wednesday in full pads and was not wearing a brace on his left arm.

Hundley suffered a "slight" hyper extension during last week's game against Texas and was forced out of the second half. In the following days, reports surfaced that Hundley would play in the school's next game against Arizona State, but that is not until after the bye week. It is a good sign that Hundley is already practicing in full pads.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "showed tremendous character and leadership skills by staying engaged with his teammates on the sideline" after his Saturday injury against Texas, wrote NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks.

"Hundley was into the game and showed the kind of moxie that scouts covet in franchise quarterbacks," Brooks wrote. Hundley suffered a slight hyper extension of his left elbow on Saturday, and he's expected to be able to play next week against Arizona State (UCLA has a bye this weekend). "Now, I must admit that I'm a little concerned about Hundley's elbow injury," Brooks wrote. "Although it is his non-throwing arm and he could come back to play in a pivotal matchup against Arizona State in less than two weeks, I'm worried that the injury could affect how he performs from the pocket due to discomfort. In addition, I'm curious to see how he well he performs when he isn't fully healthy because franchise quarterbacks are expected to be in the lineup each week while dealing with bumps, bruises, aches and pains. If Hundley can continue to perform at a high level despite battling through an injury, I will feel better about his chances as a big-time prospect."

In CBS Sports' Dane Brugler's latest mock he believes "the Rams need to think of the future of the position" and could draft UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley with the No. 4 pick in the 2015 Draft.

"Although Bradford is under contract for the 2015 season, the Rams need to think of the future of the position if they have the chance to draft one of the top quarterbacks next spring," Brugler wrote. With the former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford out for the season, the St. Louis Rams should have a "chance to draft one of the top quarterbacks next spring," according to Brugler. For Hundley to get into the top-10 in the spring draft -- for the record, we don't think he belongs -- he'll need to improve his consistency and keep his eyes up under pressure.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley reportedly suffered a "slight" hyper extension of his left elbow on Saturday, and he's expected to be able to play next weekend against Arizona State, reports Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports.

"They say he will be fine by the end of next week," Feldman reported on Fox Sports Live. Hundley landed awkwardly on his left side in the first quarter against the Longhorns and immediately trotted off the field. Backup QB Jerry Neuheisel had a star turn as his sub, throwing for 226 yards and two touchdowns. Hundley, however, is expected to relegate Neuheisel to bench work on Thursday, Sept. 25 (UCLA has a bye next week), pending the results of an MRI on Sunday. Hundley is 53-of-77 for 638 yards, three touchdowns and one interception through three games.
