The NFL Draft concluded today, and as expected, the only Husky taken was cornerback Desmond Trufant in the first round on Thursday, selected by Atlanta.
It’s the fewest Huskies taken since the 2009 draft, which followed the 0-8 2008 season. But it also makes some sense given the smallish senior class of 2012 and that most of the key guys in the 2008 class played four years or came out early.
A couple Huskies may get free agent looks, notably safety Justin Glenn.
