Sunday Best - Washington Huskies in the NFL

Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

As training camps have gotten on their way and fall camp is upon us, its time to take a look at which are former huskies are playing in the NFL.

Desmond Trufant CB Atlanta - Desmond was the 22nd pick in the 2013 NFL draft. One of the top corners in the draft the Falcons expect him to be a big part of the goal of winning a Super Bowl. He will compete to start opposite Asante Samuel or will most certainly be at least the nickel back

Jake Locker QB Tennessee - Jake is coming into his second year as the starting QB. And many "experts" are calling this a make or break year for him. I wouldn't go that far but Jake needs to show he is improving and that he can stay healthy.

Dashon Goldson S Tampa Bay - Dashon signed a big free agent contract to play on the defense that has the most huskies on it. OK money played a big part two. But Dashon left last yeasr runner up for a team still trying to decide their identity and if Josh Freeman can be a franchise QB. But hey I hate the 49ers too.

Mason Foster LB Tampa Bay - Mason has been Tampa Bay's starting middle LB since day one. He is turning into one of the best young MLB's in the game. Coming off a year with 105 tackles and the addition of Goldson the Tampa D is hoping to be one of the best.

Donald Butler LB San Diego - Donald was on his way to the pro bowl last year when he was shelved with a groin injury. In 12 games he recorded 94 tackles. He like Mason is one of the top young MLB in the game.

Khalif Barnes OT Oakland - Khalif should once again be Oakland's starting right tackle. The raiders offense hopes to be better with the return of Darren McFadden from injury and the addition of Tony Sparano as line coach.

Chris Polk RB Philadelphia - Chris played in 9 games last year but only on special teams. He is in battle with Bryce Brown to be the Eagles back up RB. It sounds like the battle is close right now, and one we will be paying very close attention too.

Jermaine Kearse WR Seattle - Jermaine is really pushing for playing time this year. After being signed late in 2012 and catching 3 balls in his rookie year. Now Jermaine has had lasik surgery and Carroll has already named him a special team starter.

Senio Kelemete G Arizona - Senio seems to be heading into 2013 as a backup G. He was inactive for all but 1 game in 2012

Alameda Ta'amu DT Pittsburgh - It depends which depth chart you look to find Alameda as a backup NT or not even listed. I suspect he is pushing to be the number 2 for 2013.

Isaiah Stanback TE Jacksonville - How Isaiah continues to be around is amazing and a testament to how hard this guy works. Now playing TE for the Jaguars, could this finally be there year he plays a full season?

Marcel Reece FB Oakland - Marcel has made a nice career for himself as TE and FB. Even getting multiple carries in games. He is great blocker and hopes to catch many balls out of the backfield.

Daniel Te'o-Nesheim DE Tampa Bay - The last buccaneer defender on this list, hoping to continue to increase his playing time he recorded 24 for tackles in 2012

Everette Thompson DE Arizona - Everette is down on the depth chart this year and really probably just hoping for a roster spot.

Jonathan Amosa FB Green Bay - Jonathan is a practice squad player at best in 2013.

Caesar Rayford LB Indianapolis - Caesar is probably a long shot to make the colts roster.
