Draft Scout Jordan Zumwalt News
05/18/14 - LB Jordan Zumwalt, a sixth-round pick, played inside and outside linebacker at UCLA. The Steelers coaches said right after they drafted him that he would be put inside. However, in his first two days of rookie camp, Zumwalt was on the outside. His versatility and ability to play special teams make him a better-than-normal bet to make it as a sixth-rounder.
"We love that versatility," general manager Kevin Colbert said.

04/29/14 - Five players who should be on Pittsburgh's draft radar: LB Jordan Zumwalt, UCLA: Inside linebacker won't be listed as the top need on any lists out there, but in the mid-to-late rounds, Zumwalt has the intensity and versatility that screams Steelers. He has experience playing inside and outside and would provide depth at several linebacker spots for Pittsburgh. Zumwalt plays fast, active and aggressive, but also stiff and is more of a straight-line athlete who struggles to easily redirect. He has an intense on-field demeanor and to describe him as "violent" would be an understatement, but he also comes with durability concerns due to his physical play style. Zumwalt projects as a versatile reserve player who is able to wear several hats in various schemes and should be able to make a living on special teams coverages as well, making him a logical target in the fourth or fifth round. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
04/17/14 - Five players who should be on Washington's draft radar: ILB Jordan Zumwalt, UCLA: Washington re-signed Perry Riley last month to a three-year deal, but the inside linebacker spot next to him is a bit unsettled. Zumwalt plays fast, active and aggressive, but also stiff and is more of a straight-line athlete who struggles to easily redirect. He has an intense on-field demeanor and to describe him as “violent” would be an understatement, but he also comes with durability concerns due to his physical play style. Zumwalt projects as a versatile part-time player who can cut his teeth on special teams while fighting for a starting inside linebacker job. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/31/13 - Sophomore quarterback Brett Hundley powered the No. 17 UCLA Bruins to a 42-12 Sun Bowl victory over the Virginia Tech Hokies on Tuesday in front of 47,912 fans at Sun Bowl Stadium. Hundley, a high-round NFL prospect, rushed for a career-high 161 yards and two touchdowns and passed for 223 yards and two scores in the Bruins' first bowl victory since beating Temple in the 2009 EagleBank Bowl. Hundley rushed for touchdowns of 86 and 7 yards. His long scoring run was UCLA's longest offensive play ever in a bowl game. He also tossed touchdown passes of 7 and 59 yards.
UCLA (10-3) finished with 452 total yards and 200 yards rushing. Both totals are the highest allowed by the Hokies (8-5) since a loss to North Carolina last October. Virginia Tech senior quarterback Logan Thomas was knocked out of the game with 12:13 remaining in the second quarter. He was rocked by UCLA linebacker Jordan Zumwalt while completing a short pass to receiver Joshua Stanford. Hundley's 86-yard touchdown run came three minutes later and gave the Bruins a 14-7 lead they would never relinquish. - The Sports Xchange
