From Pullman — Deone Bucannon was at today's Washington State basketball game against USC to accept the CFPA Elite Defensive Back trophy at halftime. Before the game he spoke with the media to talk about his preparation for the upcoming NFL Draft, his performance at the recent NFL Combine and the award.
Korey Toomer, one the most athletically gifted players at Idaho in recent years, was selected in the fifth round of the NFL draft today by Seattle. The Seahawks, who previously took Utah State linebacker Bobby Wagner and USU tailback Robert Turbin, wanted to get faster on defense. Toomer ran a 4.53 in the 40-yard dash and was the Vandals' most consistent defensive playmaker last year.
The outside linebacker had 10.5 tackles for loss last year and also rushed for three touchdowns as the Vandals' short-yardage back.
Eastern Washington star running back Taiwan Jones has hired an agent and will enter the NFL Draft.
