Top Huskies For 2013 — No. 9: Travis Feeney

Steven Bisig-US PRESSWIRE

After moving from safety to linebacker prior to last season, Travis Feeney found a home in Justin Wilcox's defense

Most weren't sure what to make of the move. Feeney wasn't a guy who was talked about a whole lot, coming out of high school as just a two star player, and was stuck behind the older and more experienced players at safety in Sean Parker and Justin Glenn. It would have been a stretch before the season to call Feeney an impact player as a redshirt freshman at linebacker. After the season, it would be an understatement.

Feeney exploded onto the season with 2 tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a sack in the opener against a very good San Diego State team. And as the season went on Feeney kept making plays, using his Go-Go-Gadget arms to corral ballcarriers, disrupt passing lanes, and fight off blockers. For his efforts, he was named an Honorable Mention All Pac-12 player. This, despite missing a few games to injury.

Feeney is part of a linebacking corps that returns everybody, and could be the best in the conference as well as among the best in the country. Feeney might not always be the best of the bunch - John Timu and Shaquille Thompson will take away headlines at times - but he's a safe bet to make the most plays.
