A look at Husky draft prospects

Posted by Bob Condotta

As part of our weeklong preview of the NFL Draft, I wrote today about the outlook for former Huskies in this weekend's draft.. The consensus is that it doesn't sound all that good in terms of hearing their names called this weekend.

As the story details, the Husky with the best chance of getting drafted is said to be Marcel Reece, whose mix of speed and size (he weighed in at 231) intrigues NFL scouts, who think Reece could be tried at several different offensive positions.

The overall theme of the story, however, is that UW's lack of success on the field the last few years is also mirrored by its lack of draftees come April.

I prepared this chart for the story, but it didn't make it in the paper so I'll present it here. It shows that UW has had the second-fewest draftees of any Pac-10 school since 2003.

PAC-10 PICKS
Over the last five seasons, only Arizona among Pac-10 schools has had fewer players taken in the NFL Draft than UW. Here's a list
USC --- 30 (7 first-rounders)
Stanford --- 20 (1)
Cal --- 18 (4)
Oregon --- 16 (1)
Oregon State --- 14 (2)
UCLA --- 14 (1)
Arizona State --- 12 (1)
Washington State --- 11 (1)
Washington --- 9 (1)
Arizona --- 8 (0)

And here are UW's draftees since 2003:

2003 --- None

2004 --- 1, Reggie Williams, WR, Jacksonville
2, Tank Johnson, DT, Chicago
3, Marquis Cooper, LB, Tampa Bay
7, Cody Pickett, QB, San Francisco

2005
2, Khalif Barnes, OL, Jacksonville
6, Derrick Johnson, CB, San Francisco

2006
4, Joe Toledo, OT, Miami

2007
4, Isaiah Stanback, QB, Dallas
4, Dashon Goldson, DB, San Francisco
