Washington Huskies running back Chris Polk was one of the college players who received an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis at the end of February.
Brock Huard, former Huskies player and current radio show host, provided his opinion on what Polk's goals should be at the Combine. Huard pointed out that Polk's lineman teammates who will also be attending the Combine, such as Alameda Ta'amu have much less to prove to NFL scouts, given that they had a chance to do what they do at the Senior Bowl. In addition, what scouts look for in a running back goes far beyond the physicality requirements needed for linemen like the other Huskies at the Combine.
Huard points out that this is Polk's key opportunity to reassert himself as one of the top five backs in this year's draft. Polk will really need to perform well in Indianapolis to establish his value to pro teams.
