Also, UW's Travis Feeney gets strong reviews for his workout at the NFL combine.
One week after the NFL combine, Washington strength and conditioning coach Tim Socha and his staff again will put on a similar event for Husky players. The third annual Husky Combine is set for 1 p.m. Sunday at the Dempsey Indoor Facility, next to Husky Stadium, and fans are invited to attend free of charge.
Running back Dwayne Washington, now preparing for the NFL draft, posted UW’s fastest time in the 40-yard dash last year at 4.42 seconds.
Seniors are scheduled to go through drills first at 1 p.m. Sunday, followed by the remaining wide receivers and defensive backs, starting at about 1:30 p.m.
At 2:30 running backs, tight ends, quarterbacks and linebackers will work out. At 3:30 the offensive and defensive linemen, plus the long snappers, will conclude the event.

Elsewhere, UW’s Travis Feeney continues to get solid reviews for his workout at the NFL combine earlier this week. ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. noted that Feeney was among the linebackers who shined.
Rob Rang of CBSsports noted that Feeney’s history of shoulder injuries is still his biggest question mark. Rang added: “There is no denying the 6-4, 230 pounder’s athleticism, however, after he finished second only to Ohio State’s Darron Lee in the 40-yard dash (4.50) and broad jump (10’10”) and led all linebackers with a 40″ vertical.”
