- Yesterday was Washington’s Pro Day and Mike Vorel of the Seattle Times had his notes from the event.
- Rob Rang for NFL Draft Scout also has plenty of anecdotes and details of his own.
- Rang also hopped on a podcast with the Dawgman guys to discuss yesterday.
- Christian Caple for The Athletic profiled Husky great Hau’oli Kikaha who also participated in the event trying to get back in the NFL after injuries have plagued the early part of his career.
The knock on Jake Browning as an NFL prospect has been his arm strength. He’s been working on that with ex-BYU/NFL QB John Beck, who works under throwing guru Tom House. They’ve focused on increasing the torque in Browning’s delivery. He showed off the improvement at UW pro day. pic.twitter.com/pcri98H8Zb— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) April 2, 2019
High ranking NFL scout among those recording 40-yard dash times today had Taylor Rapp at 4.77, Myles Gaskin at 4.56.— Rob Rang (@RobRang) April 1, 2019
Not an April Fools Joke:— Brock Huard (@BrockESPN) April 1, 2019
Jake Browning at the NFL Combine ran the 40 in 4.74
I confirmed with an NFL scout at the UW Pro Day today that S Taylor Rapp ran 40 in 4.75-4.77
Some team is going to get a steal & a heck of a football player, but that 40 was costly in $$ & draft slot
Washington OT and potential first-rounder Kaleb McGary in heavy demand. He has private meetings-workouts and visits with Eagles, Bills, Saints, Falcons, Chargers, Colts, Cardinals, Panthers, Jaguars, Patriots, Green Bay, Redskins, Giants and Vikings, per a source.

- An interesting tidbit from CB Jordan Miller who apparently considered redshirting this past season to make sure he was fully recovered from the injury that ended his 2017 season.
Jordan Miller said today that prior to fall camp, he wasn't sure if he was going to play the 2018 season. Considered redshirting and coming back in 2019. But he had a good camp and decided to stick it out. "No regrets," he said.— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) April 1, 2019

- One member of Washington’s senior class is still going to get to perform in a Husky uniform one more time as David Crisp was selected to take part in the 3-point shooting contest at the Final Four. The event will take place at 6pm PT on Thursday night.
- UCLA’s pursuit of Kentucky’s John Calipari as their new head coach (in which they aggressively offered him less than he’s currently making...) led to him getting a lifetime contract offer. The next two candidates for the job are reportedly TCU’s Jaime Dixon and Cincinnati’s Mick Cronin.
