UCLA’s Brett Hundley has a game NFL scouts will love

If you’re a fan hoping your team will take a quarterback in next year’s NFL draft, keep an eye on Brett Hundley of UCLA.

Hundley had an outstanding game today at Nebraska, moving UCLA down the field all day, both as a runner and a passer, as the Bruins beat the Cornhuskers 41-21. Hundley went 16-of-24 for 294 yards with three touchdowns, and he also added 61 yards rushing. Hundley was already on the radar of people who follow the draft, but this was the kind of performance that will make everyone take notice.

A pair of back-to-back plays in the third quarter really showed what kind of all-around prospect Hundley is. After a nice 12-yard run gave UCLA a first down, on the very next play Hundley threw an absolutely perfect pass directly into the hands of receiver Shaquelle Evans in the end zone for a 28-yard touchdown.

Hundley currently looks like the second-best quarterback prospect in next year’s draft, behind Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater. Hundley redshirted his freshman year in 2011, which means he could declare for the draft as early as the end of this college football season, or he could play two more years at UCLA after this one. (Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel is in the same situation.) It’s tough to see why Hundley would return to school after this year. He looks ready for the NFL.

    Yeah, Hundley seems the much better pro prospect. Bridgewater is just Geno Smith a year later.

    Is Boyd not draft eligible?

    Michael David Smith: Boyd is draft eligible. In my opinion Hundley is better.

    Saw only the second half of that game. Can’t imagine how Nebraska built a 21-3 lead, because in the second half they looked “fire the coaches and everyone on the roster” awful. I’ve rarely seen a major college program get completely mauled the way they did in every phase. Hundley is good, but it looked as if you or I could have won that game today.

    It should also be noted that the Bruins were coming from behind after flying halfway across the country for a noon kickoff, and in the wake of one of their players being killed in a car accident.

    Any QB thinking about coming out early just look at Sanchez. He came out early and flamed out. I know there’s always the chance of getting hurt but the extra year could make you a better QB

    The Huskers were in over their head. They are not even close to their ranking of 23rd.

    Hundley’s not even the best QB in the Pac-12 let alone the second best in next years draft. Oregon’s Marcus Mariota is better.

    Seems like the type of QB the Vikings can reach for early in the 1st round.

    RED FLAG: California QB.
