04/23/2012 - Teams such as Denver, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Tampa Bay and the New York Giants could view Polk as a nice change-of-pace back who can also play on third down because of his natural catching ability. "Me, personally, I just sees passes as an extended carry," Polk said. "I'm not going to fumble the ball, and I'm not going to drop any passes. Just come my way and trust in me, and I'll get the job done." Polk finished with 79 catches for 683 yards and four touchdowns during his UW career. In his final Huskies season, Polk rushed for 1,488 yards and 12 touchdowns on 293 carries, averaging 5.1 yards a carry with one fumble. "I'm versatile," Polk said. "I can do it all. I can run, block and catch - all of that. It's just a matter of me executing my technique rather than relying on just the physical abilities, and just staying mentally attuned to my technique and staying fundamentally sound." And that relentless running style? "It just comes from your desire because every time I touch the ball, I'm thinking touchdown," he said. "It may not make sense, but I love hitting - but I hate being tackled. "Every time I'm tackled - whether it's by being put on my back or an ankle tackle - I just get mad. I get down. I just get angry. I just want to keep running and running until I reach that end zone." - Eric D. Williams, The Olympian Online
