Bruin Bites: Post-NFL Draft Edition

A collection of news and notes after the UCLA Bruins' outstanding NFL Draft weekend, seeing 5 Bruins drafted in the first 6 rounds.

Stephen Dunn

This weekend was another banner week for the UCLA football program, as 5 Bruins were selected in the NFL Draft. UCLA led the Pac-12 through the sixth round, until Stanford had some players go in the 200's and ended up with 6 guys being selected.

He’s an inside guy but does he have the versatility to play outside?

He’s a long, tall kid, but I would see him as an inside guy too at this point. He’s a kid that can provide some backup for us, and he should be able to play some special teams for us. Great competition at the inside linebacker position, we are going to have some.

And, as always Jordan provide both a great quote and a ridiculous moment:

How tough is it waiting to be drafted?

You remember when you were a kid and you were waiting for Christmas? But it’s like you get to meet Santa this time. You know what I mean? It’s pretty tough.

Some Bruins to keep an eye on for mini-camp invites include Malcolm Jones, Stan McKay, Seali'i Epenesa, Keenan Graham and other former Bruins working for a shot at the NFL. I will try to update BN as news rolls in over the next week or so.

Go Bruins!

UPDATE: Coach Jim Mora gives a short update on UDFA's. Congrats to all 3 so far.
