Good morning Coug fans. I imagine you’re all feeling pretty good, what with last night’s men’s basketball win over the Washington Huskies. That means our Washington State Cougars have swept UW in the regular season in Kyle Smith’s first season. It was basketball’s night last night, but let’s switch gears and talk about football.

Anthony Gordon and Dezmon Patmon went through drills this week at the NFL Combine and both performed quite well as they work toward their NFL dreams.

Patmon’s scouting report pegs him as an “end of roster or practice squad” player, just like Godon’s. Seeing the big receiver drafted would also be a treat and who knows: he could move to tight end with his size. He also got some praise from an ESPN analyst:

The NFL Draft is April 23 - 25.
