Husky NFL prospects

Finally got around to reading my copy of USA Today Sports Weekly for this week on the plane flight down here, which included a breakdown of tonight’s UW-ASU game.
Most interesting was its list of UW pro prospects. I’ll list them just as the newspaper did: Juan Garcia, Greyson Gunheim, Roy Lewis, Louis Rankin, Johnie Kirton, Jordan White-Frisbee and Byron Davenport.
Pretty sure the magazine was only listing those players who would be eligible for the draft this year, thus no Jake Locker, etc.
I was pretty surprised to see JWF on there just because he’s barely played at all since 2004. And the magazine lists him as a tackle when he’s been playing guard of late — not sure if they got that wrong or just are projecting where he’d play in the NFL.
I know some of you think JWF should be getting more PT, and maybe there’s a scout or two out there that agrees with you.
Interestingly, JWF just might play more in the upcoming weeks. As I wrote here earlier in the week, he was apparently one of the standout players during some of the scrimmaging last week.
Said OL coach Mike Denbrock: “He’s a big, powerful man who can help us with some push in the middle and I think he has gotten to the point that he finally feels comfortable with the things we are asking him to do. That’s such an important part of the whole deal to is not only us feeling comfortable with him but him feeling comfortable with what we are asking him to do. I think those things are finally coming together for him and he is starting to do some really good things.”
Denbrock said he is getting to the point where he is “not afraid” to play more of the backups.
With the hotter climate tonight, UW coaches are expected to rotate more players.
ASU’s top pro prospects were listed as: SS Josh Barrett, C Mike Pollak, RB Ryan Torain, QB Rudy Carpenter, G Paul Fanaika, G Brandon Rodd, CB Justin Tryon, DT Michael Marquardt, FB Brent Miller and WR Rudy Burgess.
