Counting down the 10 best Huskies

My former Husky beat colleague Ted Miller has a really nice idea on his Pac-10 blog right now, counting down the 30 best players in the Pac-10.
It’s such a fun idea, I thought I’d copy it and do a little Husky-version countdown — specifically, listing the top 10 Washington players for 2009.
We’ll start today with No. 10 — defensive end Everrette Thompson.
Thompson came to UW last fall with a lot of fanfare out of Kennedy High, and in the muck of last season had a quietly productive year. He became a starter late in the year after wowing coaches with his play in practice, and he finished with five tackles for a loss — third on the team — and two sacks — tied for third on the team — despite a lot less playing time than a lot of other guys.
Now having a full college off-season to get bigger, stronger, faster, etc., no reason Thompson won’t be a lot more productive in 2009.
