Tuesday morning notes — Williams among those wrapping up Combine

The NFL Combine concludes today, and UW safety Nate Williams was the second-to-last player to run a 40. Williams recorded unofficial times of 4.70 and 4.77.

The NFL Network lumped all the defensive backs together, so Williams’ time was not close to getting into the top 10 of that group — the cutoff for the top 10 of all defensive backs was 4.43.

Williams, a three-year starter for the Huskies, is generally considered as contending for a spot in the late rounds.

He was one of three Huskies taking part in the Combine along with QB Jake Locker and LB Mason Foster, whose positions have already completed their work. All will now prepare for individual workouts with teams as well as UW’s Pro Day, set for March 30.

Those are the only three Huskies considered as having a legitimate shot of getting drafted.

IN OTHER NEWS. …

— Some of you have asked if there was any real news from UW’s Junior Day over the weekend. Dawgman.com has a pay story with some quotes from some of the recruits who were there. I won’t repeat any of it, but there were no commitments, and at the moment, hard to tell if any are imminent. Among those who were there were in-state players such as QB Jeff Lindquist of Mercer Island, OL Zach Banner of Lakes, RB Keivarae Russell of Mariner High in Everrett, athlete Cedric Dozier of Lakes and WR Michael Rector of Bellarmine Prep. One in-state player not there was OL Josh Garnett of Puyallup, whom Scout.com reported was at Stanford’s Junior Day.

— UW has yet to get a commit for 2012, though as noted last week, that puts the Huskies right in line with most of the Pac-12 — only USC has more than one, with four. However, Texas A&M already has nation-leading 14, as detailed in this story.

— The Orange County Register writes about a Class of 12 linebacker who has an offer from Washington.

— An Oregon Duck blogger evaluates UW’s prospects for 2011.

— Oregon freshman OL Nick Rowland, who UW also heavily recruited, is giving up football due to medical issues. Here’s another take on that story.

— Some interesting thoughts on the Combine from CSNWashington.com.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller has a wrapup of all the Pac-12 players at the Combine.

All for now.
