The second and third rounds of the NFL Draft have concluded, and in somewhat of a surprise, no Huskies have been taken.
Lots of mock drafts had UW running back Chris Polk, defensive tackle Alameda Ta’amu and offensive tackle Senio Kelemete going somewhere in the first three rounds — especially Ta’amu (picked by some as high as the late first) and Polk (generally considered at least a third rounder).
But tonight’s rounds came and went without their names being called. Teams might have been scared off by Ta’amu’s inconsistency, and maybe Polk’s injury history (apparently that was mentioned on the NFL Network), though that’s just kind of conjecture — Kelemete was more commonly considered a fourth-fifth-sixth rounder so not as big a surprise that he wasn’t taken.
Now they will have to wait until tomorrow when the draft resumes at 9 a.m. Seattle time.
