Washington running back Chris Polk and the rest of the backfield have been drawing rave reviews all spring. Recently Polk drew the praise of middle linebacker Cort Dennison when he said "He was already hard enough to bring down in the fall last year. I think with more lower body strength he’s just going to be a nightmare for defenses." Deontae Cooper is finally healthy and coach Steve Sarkisian says "We need to continue to develop big-play guys and I definitely think (Cooper) can be one of them."
With the Huskies breaking in a new quarterback, there should be a heavily reliance on the ground game which means a big season is in store for Polk and Co.
