Butler lifting draft status — and just about everything else

On the bus home from the Olympics — yes, we travel in style here at the Times — catching up on what’s going on outside of Vancouver (where you’d need an aspirin bottle the size of the moon to cure the hangover there today).
And I see that UW linebacker Donald Butler could apparently probably lift the bus on which I’m riding.
NFL.com reports that Butler turned in the best performance of any linebacker during the weight-lifting competition at the NFL Combine Sunday, raising 225 pounds 35 times. A Bleacher Report columnist notes that’s more than all but four linemen.
That obviously should only help his draft status, especially considering how well he had played during practices for the Senior Bowl.
Daniel Te’o-Nesheim is also at the combine but I have yet to see anything on him.
Also, Ken Goe has all the latest news around the Pac-10 as does Ted Miller, who notes that Stanford is beginning spring practice today. Teams only get 15 practices in the spring so really makes no difference when you start.
