LISTEN: Blue 42: Which Husky players will be drafted into the NFL?

Seven University of Washington football players were invited to this year’s NFL Scouting Combine. During Brock and Salk’s Blue 42 segment, Brock Huard predicted which Huskies will be drafted, and which ones won’t.

DT Vita Vea

“Vita Vea is going to go in the first round. He could climb to the top ten after the combine when he puts on the show he does,” Huard said.

WR Dante Pettis

“I think Dante Pettis is going to put on a show. I think he’s going to jump 40 inches. I think he’s going to be really smooth. If he runs in the 4.4s, especially the low 4.4s, I think he goes in the first three rounds,” Huard said.

LB Keishawn Bierria

“Keishawn Bierria is a guy that could go late. He’s got too much production. He’s a bit of a tweener, size-wise. He has heart. He is everything that you want. Coaches love him. People gravitate toward him. I think he could be a late round pick,” Huard said.

RB Lavon Coleman

“It’s too deep of a running back class. Maybe he’s a seventh round pick. He’d be my fourth one,” Huard said.

The three remaining Huskies Huard said are likely to remain undrafted are TE Will Dissly, C Coleman Shelton, and LB Azeem Victor.
