The Morning Haul 4/5


After a few days of no Morning Haul, we’re back with some great UW football (specifically Desmond Trufant) news. It was a few days full of speculation, excitement and finally disappointment surrounding Aaron Gordon and we added a new writer, Paul Somerstein. You can read his first article right here. I hope everyone has a short, fun Friday!

The first and only basketball link today is takes an insightful look at the comparisons between Abdul Gaddy and Peyton Siva.

"At some point in the past four years, the better of the point guards according to the scouts took a back seat to the one who was just “shaping up” to be pretty good. Most Husky fans have been asking the question: what happened? Why didn’t Gaddy end up like Siva?"

Mel Kiper has Desmond Trufant going in the mid-late first round in his latest mock draft.

"In Trufant, you get a player who will make your secondary better regardless of where the needs are, because Trufant can do it all. Slot or outside, man or zone, you’re going to get an effective talent."

More Desmond Trufant news, this time it’s a Sports Illustrated feature story.

"Trufant is not far from the top rung of the ladder at his position, either, at least in terms of this year’s incoming rookie class. Buoyed by a 4.38 40-yard dash at the combine in February, Trufant now appears to be a safe bet to be a Round 1 draft pick later this month."

Fellow Fansided site, The Pewter Plank, interviewed me about who else but Desmond Trufant! Looks like the Bucs are really eyeing Trufant with the 13th pick.

"Evan Webeck, editor of The Husky Haul, stopped by to answer a few questions for us about Desmond Trufant, as Buccaneer fans take a closer look at the prospects available in this month’s NFL draft. Take a look at what he had to say."

Finally, Tyler Brett of Rant Sports speculates about the future of the Huskies secondary.

"Senior Will Shamburger, who finished 2012 with 21 tackles and a fumble recovery for a touchdown, has taken a large portion of the first-team snaps through the early part of spring practice, but he has by no means locked up the job for next fall."
