The 2015 NFL Scouting Combine came to a close Monday as two groups of defensive backs took the field to show their speed, leaping ability, movement skills and ball skills as they went through a variety of tests and drills on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

As expected, there was some elite-level speed on display as three cornerbacks completed the 40-yard dash in less than 4.4 seconds. Among those speedsters was Michigan State’s Trae Waynes, who ran the fastest 40 time at 4.31 seconds and likely secured his status as the No. 1 cornerback to be drafted in April.

Brigham Young (8-5) and Washington (9-4) faced off in the Fight Hunger Bowl on Friday, Dec. 27, with both teams looking to get their ninth win of the season.

Despite being overwhelmingly outgained on offense, Washington led 21-16 at halftime behind a couple of touchdowns by junior running back Bishop Sankey, who declared for the 2014 NFL draft Monday, and won the game by a final score of 31-16.

Several seniors from both teams, as well as a number of Washington underclassmen including Sankey, are expected to be selections in the 2014 NFL draft.

The final game of the bowl season’s first week will feature numerous NFL prospects on both sides of the ball for both teams as the BYU Cougars (8-4) and Washington Huskies (8-4) play in Friday night’s Fight Hunger Bowl (9:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

While both of these teams will be looking to finish their season with a ninth victory, the game’s senior NFL prospects, including BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy and Washington quarterback Keith Price, will be looking to make a big impression in their final college football games before moving on to the next level. The same might be the case for a few select underclassmen, including Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and running back Bishop Sankey, who could declare for the 2014 NFL draft to take advantage of early-round potential.
