07:36 AM ET 12.04 | Still, Bruins quarterback Brett Hundley had to breathe at least some sigh of relief. "I'm not concerned at all," Bruins quarterback Brett Hundley told Jim Rome in his CBS Sports Radio interview Tuesday about the possibility of Jim Mora leaving for Washington. ... But now, should Mora be concerned about his star quarterback? The coach asked Hundley immediately following the Bruins' smackdown of rivals USC if he was coming back to UCLA in 2014 and putting off the NFL Draft for another season. The redshirt sophomore did not answer either way. "It was funny. It was the last question that I was thinking of at the moment," Hundley told Rome. Asked the same question by Rome, Hundley said he would not make a decision until after UCLA's bowl game. "I'm still really not even really thinking about it too much," he said.

I am going to say........I haven't watched him play. So like a voter I will make something up.....I say yes, well, no, actually maybe but it depends on who drafts him and their system, so then probably no but possibly if he has a good combine but he has to decide before that so I will make him a 3rd round grade unless JFF comes back in which case he moves up to 2nd because Mariota is coming back and Murray has a torn ACL. So yes.

Not to many are ready when they come out..... Manning, Luck....


Does he has the physical tools? yes
He played in an O where they threw the ball.. yes
Size... yes

Now he has to look at who else is coming out..

Mariotta is coming back, according to him..
Mettsiah and Murray, ACL tears

Only QB I can see ahead of him right now is Bridgewater... Maybe Boyd

So I think he would be a 1st Rounder and most likely 2/3rd QB taken

I've seen them all more than once this year and I think Hundley stands out over Bridgewater or Boyd, JMO...

I watched 5-6 games and I don't think he's ready. Raw talent, but not accurate enough, could use another year.

Not an NFL guy, but would think Carr and Fales get picked over Hundley

That's good right there.

I would take Hundley over Boyd as well.... Bridgewater is close.. Hundley def play against better competition.... But all the draft board love TeddyB..

I forgot about Carr like Guido mentioned.. So he prob go before Hundley...

For the record.. I agree TB and BH could use another year... The rest are SRs

Saw where some NFL talent guru thinks those two can flat spin it and may get picked ahead of better known ones...especially if the NFL team is looking at traditional NFL QBs.

It was obvious the two defenses they played in the last game against each other couldn't handle the opposing one...62-52...jeez

Both about 6'3" or so I believe.

I really like Fales, he does throw a great ball

He may be the next big thing in the NFL, be interesting to see if it translates to better competition

Why would any coach leave UCLA for UW? If he can't succeed in LA he certainly isn't going to build a championship team at UW.

Nice of you to note the talented seniors not from a power conference school. Pro scouts do.

Agree totally regarding opponent quality, also thought Guido made good points with Fales and Carr, both look excellent but each time I watched both Fresno and SJSU they played teams w/o quality defenses, when you can stand in the pocket all day and hit wide open receivers, you tend to rack up good numbers, either that or part of the conversation needs to include all-world O- lines....

DC, how many QBs playing in the NFL today, are NFL ready?? :-)

Damn good comment. Fans don't realize how hard it is to recruit in Washington State. IMO, is was a good job of Mora bluffing the Bruins into a new contract.

Some times they draft on potential which obviously be the case for TB/BH and Mariota if he came out..

Has Fales and Carr reach their ceilings????

Who knows... I didnt think Ponder would have went 1st Round...

Yeah and who in their right mind would have thought that Tebow would have went in the 1st round. How about the overrated Locker going in the 1st round. We as fans just don't know what goes thru the NFL scout's head.
