This has been one of the most exciting weekends for UCLA football in regards to Bruins heading to the pros in a long time. Good times, indeed. Five Bruins were selected in the 2014 NFL Draft and three more have signed with teams as undrafted free agents (UDFA). This is a testament to what UCLA Head Coach Jim Mora has done in Westwood since he got there two seasons ago. Let us recap the the players, selections and teams these Bruins will be heading to.
|Bruins To The Pros|
|Name||Position||Round (Pick)||NFL Team|
|Anthony Barr||Outside Linebacker||1st (9th)||Minnesota Vikings|
|Xavier Su’a-Filo||Offensive Guard||2nd (33rd)||Houston Texans|
|Cassius Marsh||Defensive End||4th (108th)||Seattle Seahawks|
|Shaquelle Evans||Wide Receiver||4th (115th)||New York Jets|
|Jordan Zumwalt||Inside Linebacker||6th (192nd)||Pittsburgh Steelers|
|Brandon Sermons||Defensive Back||UDFA||Arizona Cardinals|
|Darius Bell||Tight End||UDFA||Baltimore Ravens|
|Seali’i Epenesa||Defensive Tackle||UDFA||New England Patriots|
But that is not all. According to Mora, more Bruins should be getting a chance to make it to the big time.
Brandon Sermons to the Cardinals, Darius Bell to the Ravens, Saili’i Epenesa to the Patriots…stay tuned, more to come. #BruinRevolution
