Travis Feeney became the first Husky to realize his NFL dreams today when the Pittsburgh Steelers selected him with the 220th pick of this year's draft.

An on-again, off-again starter since his redshirt freshman year, the 6-4, 226 lb. Feeney capitalized on his move to the BUCK linebacker position in 2015 by tallying 17.5 tackles for loss and 8.0 sacks (both third in the conference). His four shoulder surgeries had reportedly taken a toll on his draft stock, but the Steelers were apparently sufficiently enamored with Feeney's second-team all-Pac-12 designation as well as his best-among-linebackers 4.50-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine to decide to roll the dice on him.
