Saturday’s Spring Game, as the name of the event would indicate, put a wrap on spring practice for the Huskies.
Players now transition into another phase of more off-season conditioning and voluntary workouts, while the coaches hit the road recruiting — there’s an evaluation period through the end of May when assistants (but not head coaches) can visit schools — here are the rules on that.
Head coach Steve Sarkisian is expected to attend the Pac-12 meetings later this week (though nothing of huge significance is expected to come out of that).
For now, some links on spring football and the NFL Draft:
— Here’s my wrapup of the spring game.
— Steve Kelley also writes about the UW defense.
— Here’s a photo gallery of the spring game (including the above photo, by Bettina Hansen, of the scramble for a fumble).
— Here’s the coverage of the Spring Game from GoHuskies.com.
— Lots of pictures from CoachSark.com.
— Here’s our news story on Chris Polk’s NFL Draft fate and that of a few other UW players.
— Jerry Brewer says he expects Chris Polk to find a way to make it work in Philadelphia.
— Here’s a story from Philly.com on Polk.
— The Sporting News calls Polk the top undrafted player.
— A Pittsburgh newspaper sizes up what Alameda Ta’amu’s selection means for the Steelers.
— You can listen here to Alameda Ta’amu’s conference call with Pittsburgh media.
— Senio Kelemete was part of Arizona’s focus on taking offensive linemen in the draft.
— More on Arizona’s draft.
— NFL.com has a good list of free agent signees.
— Christian Caple with some links around the conference.
— The Pac-12 had 28 players drafted, fourth behind the SEC (42), Big Ten (41) and ACC (31).
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller notes that that total is not that great and also has a breakdown of players drafted by team in the Pac-12.
— Another QB UW recruited heavily, Brett Hundley, appears to be making a move on the starting job at UCLA.
— And to recap, the UW free agent signees that I know of are Polk to the Eagles, Jermaine Kearse to the Seahawks and Devin Aguilar to the Titans. Everrette Thompson and Cort Dennison are others who could sign but I have not seen anything official (or from a fairly reputable media source) on either of those yet
