Saturday links — More on the draft

A few draft-related links to persue until the Huskies hit the field today at 11 a.m. (I actually won’t be covering practice today, with Percy Allen filling in).
— Here’s my story from today’s paper on Donald Butler and Daniel Te’o-Nesheim being taken in the third round of yesterday’s draft.
— The Philadelphia Daily News reports that Te’o-Nesheim wasn’t even watching the draft when he found out he’d been selected.
— And the News Journal in Delaware reports Te’o-Nesheim is looking forward to playing before the rabid fans in Philly.
— This story reports that Andy Reid joked that the team has “another T.O.,” a reference to the first part of Te’o-Nesheim’s last name.
— A lot of Philly fans seem surprisingly stumped by Te’o-Nesheim, this guy saying that you wouldn’t know who he is unless you’re a college football fanatic. If they like a guy who plays his you-know-what off on every play, they won’t wonder who he is for long.
— Here’s a Philly fan’s blog take on Te’o-Nesheim.
— As for Butler, this story details how he might be used by the Chargers (initially, primarily as a backup)
— And here’s a story that details how the Chargers moved up to get Butler. Chargers personnel director Jimmy Raye is the son of Jimmy Raye II who is close with Tyrone Willingham, a connection that might have helped Butler. Raye was a graduate assistant at Michigan State who helped recruit Willingham there as a player in the early ’70s.
All for now.
