Four Cougars invited to draft combine


I just downloaded an Excel file from Mike Sando's Seahawks' blog that contains the names of all the NFL draft combine invitees.

My first search covered the word Washington, and four Cougar names came up: defensive backs Tyron Brackenridge and Eric Frampton; defensive end Mkristo Bruce; and wide receiver Jason Hill.

There were a couple of Huskies (defensive back Dashon Goldson and quarterback Isaiah Stanback), one Pirate (tight end Michael Allan) and one ex-Cougar/Grizzly (quarterback Josh Swogger) but no one from Eastern Washington or Idaho.

The combine is next week in Indianapolis.
