Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Looks the part with a tall, well-built frame and has the arm to unleash passes all over the field. Easy throwing motion with a strong, accurate arm. Noel Mazzone's offense asks him to make aggressive downfield throws and his quarterback showed the courage to attempt these passes even with defenders in close proximity to his targets. He has a quick set-up and release, consistently places the ball so that his receivers can run after the catch and possesses the velocity and touch to make any throw.

Even more impressive than Hundley's elusiveness and acceleration, however, is his vision and poise while buying time in the pocket. Hundley feels pressure well and is willing to step up and re-set while keeping his passing options open, critical for long-term success in the NFL.

WEAKNESSES: Right now, Hundley's ball placement is a work-in-progress and he needs to improve his pocket awareness to feel the rush and quicken his reads to find a target. Like most young quarterbacks, he needs to develop his anticipation as a passer and show better rhythm with his weapons, but he has the qualities that can't be coached. Good, but not great straight-line speed in the mold of elite dual-threat QBs.

Player Overview

Coming out of Chandler, Ariz., Hundley was the first UCLA quarterback recruit to earn a five-star rating (scout.com). As a senior, he completed 139 of 225 passes for 2,348 yards, 20 touchdowns and two interceptions, while also leading the team in rushing with 856 yards (7.0 avg.) and nine touchdowns.

Hundley redshirted under Rick Neuheisel in 2011, looked the part of a future blue-chip NFL prospect in guiding the Bruins to the Pac-12 South championship last year with coach Jim Mora. Hundley threw for a school-record 3,740 passing yards, including 29 touchdowns against just 11 interceptions in his first season.

The natural ability and maturity are easy to see and why so many think this young gun is a future high pick. If he continues to improve at this pace, he could emerge as a Pro Bowl caliber quarterback.

Hundley has the physical traits to explode as a dual-threat passer in the NFL, and the mental toughness so critical for success at the next level.

It has been a long time since a Bruins' quarterback has excited scouts. The last UCLA quarterback drafted, in fact, was Cade McNown, whom the Chicago Bears selected in the first round in 1999. It remains to be seen if Hundley will develop to the point where scouts will regard him as highly as McNown but for the first time this century the Bruins boast a legitimate NFL prospect at the game's most important position. And with Hundley possessing three more years of potential collegiate eligibility, the Bruins have time to enjoy his development. (10/8/13)
