Good late morning Cougs! The NFL Draft continues today and while it looks like the Cougars aren’t slated to get a player drafted till tomorrow, it’s still very fun with all the Pac-12 players going in round 1. Here’s some Coug-links to look at today before settling in for rounds 2 and 3 this evening, highlighted by some scouting reports of our Cougs going in.
A few WSU notes to end the week – Spokesman
"I also asked Leach to expand on an earlier statement about Austin Apodaca having one of the best springs he’s seen from a freshman quarterback. Leach said: “Part of it is, he threw the ball real accurately, that’s one thing, and made good, quick decisions … He’s a good student of the game as far as football goes, and he’s just a real good student of the game and watches film relentlessly and all that…."
Marquess Wilson Scouting Report (including video) – Bleacher Report
"Wilson possesses adequate lateral agility in getting off press coverage, but struggles with more physical defensive backs in getting off the line of scrimmage. It’s something he’s going to have to develop once he gets to the NFL. He got away with it by using his quickness, but if a cornerback got his hands on Wilson, he struggled to quickly get separation."
Jeff Tuel Scouting Report (including video) – Bleacher Report
"Two things NFL teams won’t have to worry about with Tuel are his leadership qualities and character.Tuel sounds committed to his craft and is working hard to make it at the professional level."
