Keith Price is writing a diary for USA Today leading up to the NFL Draft, with his first piece published Tuesday afternoon.

Price wrote that he expected to be invited to the Senior Bowl and the NFL Scouting Combine, and he clearly has a chip on his shoulder about being snubbed by both.

Here’s an excerpt from Price:

I talk to NFL scouts, and a lot of them see me as a long-term backup. Obviously, that’s not my goal — it’s to end up becoming a starter, and I’m pushing to that every day. It doesn’t matter what team I end up playing for. I just know a team’s going to get a steal and I’m going to work extremely hard, prepare myself as if I am the starter. I understand I’m going to have a long way to go, because the NFL is a different level of competition. But I’m up for the challenge.

  • In an interview with KJR’s Mitch Levy on Tuesday, UW coach Chris Petersen touched on a range of topics, including his (reluctant) acceptance of Twitter (he doesn’t have a Twitter account but might soon) and UW’s scheduled game at Boise State in 2015. (“No,” Petersen said, “not looking forward to (that).”) He was also asked again about the suspensions of quarterback Cyler Miles and receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow. “There is no update,” he said. “They’re suspended indefinitely and we’ll see how this whole thing plays out.”

  • NCAA officials have had discussions this offseason about limiting teams’ full-contact practices to one per week, according to CBSsports.com. The Pac-12 and Ivy League already have a mandate limiting contact to twice per week.
