Representatives from approximately two-thirds of the NFL visited Seattle Wednesday despite the Huskies' top two prospects largely sitting out the Pro Day. Star running back Bishop Sankey provided some early fireworks but the big show was put on by quarterback Keith Price and receiver Keith Smith.
Blake Bortles' startling ascent from relative unknown to potential No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick stayed on course with one long-time NFL scout at UCF's pro day characterizing the quarterback's workout as a 'very solid performance overall.'
Attempting to prove he's well on his way to recovering from the torn ACL suffered on Nov. 24, Florida State pass rusher Cornellius 'Tank' Carradine worked out for scouts on Saturday. He was clocked at 4.93 seconds in the 40-yard dash, according to a high-ranking league source.
Representatives from half of the NFL were on hand to see OL Luke Marquardt work out Thursday. At nearly 6-9, 315-pounds, Marquardt is an imposing physical specimen who was invited to the combine but was unable to work out there due to a broken foot. Eight NFL teams have requested meetings with Marquardt, who's expected to be the first Cougar drafted since Christian Okoye in 1987.
