The redshirt junior told Jim Rome in an interview Monday that "there's a really good chance" that Saturday's victory over rival Southern California will be his last game against the Trojans. Hundley is currently NFLDraftScout.com's No. 41 ranked prospect and has a second round grade. The value of QBs and Hundley's upside is tantalizing enough that he could earn a first round selection.
His name may not be as recognizable as some of the other superstars on the field in UCLA's 38-20 thrashing of Southern Cal, but scouts won't soon forget the Bruins' breakout redshirt senior or his two sacks against the Trojans.
As expected, Jameis Winston and Duke Johnson provided many of the highlights but with NFL talent all over the field Saturday night, scouts couldn't focus solely on the skill positions. In fact, from a scouting perspective, the most important performance may have been turned in by versatile FSU lineman Cameron Erving, a potential top 50 pick this spring.
Cody Kessler is staking his claim as the No. 3 draft-eligible quarterback in the country. Wideout Nelson Agholor and defensive lineman Leonard Williams also starred for the Trojans, who outlasted the Bears 38-30.
Mariota scored four touchdowns and Oregon dominated Stanford, winning 45-16. The performance wasn't so good, however, to erase concerns about his ability to transfer success at the collegiate level into a more traditional pro-style offense in the NFL.
Marcus Mariota may have won the battle of the Heisman candidates but he certainly had some help in this one as an Oregon offensive line that had surrendered 12 sacks the previous two games blanked UCLA. The biggest difference? The healthy return of senior left tackle Jake Fisher.
A loss to the Arizona Wildcats at home hurts Oregon's playoff chances. Also painful? Four of the Ducks' best players -- QB Marcus Mariota, CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, DE Arik Armstead and DE Tony Washington -- each play a role in the stunning defeat.
