— Rob Rang of CBSsports.com takes a look at Washington’s top NFL prospects, and there are no surprises with the top three: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Kasen Williams and Bishop Sankey, all entering their junior season.

Rang also singles out Danny Shelton, Sean Parker and Keith Price, noting that Parker had a chance to be the best pro prospect among the UW seniors:

While Parker may look the part of his former role as Washington’s nickel back, the hard-hitter has quietly developed into one of the better all-around safeties in the Pac-12. Parker has started each of the past two seasons at safety for the Huskies, recording an average of 84 tackles a year and has 10 turnovers during that time (seven interceptions, three forced fumbles). With another standout campaign, the two-time team captain could prove the best NFL prospect among Washington’s seniors.

— Bruce Feldman of CBSsports.com, in this interview with the guys at Solid Verbal, says UW “should win” eight or nine games and expects a bounce-back season from Price. (UW questions are about halfway through the hourlong show.)

— Pacific Takes catches up with Scout’s Greg Biggins, who believes Bellevue’s Budda Baker is “totally up for grabs” between Oregon, UCLA and UW. Biggins also notes that UW is in on offensive line recruit Damien Mama, and reinforces the idea that Tosh Lupoi is one of the top recruiters in the country.

— Tragic news this morning: Utah defensive end Gaius Vaenuku and Texas A&M defensive lineman Polo Manukainiu were killed in a car crash in New Mexico.
