First Washington Player Drafted!

by: Chris Sullivan

And I don't mean University of Washington (sorry Juan Garcia), but WSU standout wide receiver Brandon Gibson has been drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles. He'll be joining a team with a lot of wide receivers including a number that have been drafted this year, so Gibson could wind up on the practice squad. Nevertheless, he will have an opportunity to prove his worth in the preseason and could make the squad as the #4 or 5 receiver on the team. Andy Reid and McNabb love to spread the ball around (Pete told me so), so Gibson could play a bigger role this year than most 6th round WR draft picks. We shall see. Either way, congrats to Brandon!
