Steelers selected Washington OLB Travis Feeney with the No. 220 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.
Feeney (6'4/230) made 32 starts at UW, tallying 33 career tackles for loss, 15.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and four interceptions. He earned second-team All-Pac 12 as a senior. Also a prolific special teamer throughout his career, Feeney blew up the Combine with a 4.5-flat forty, 40-inch vertical and 10-foot-10 broad jump. A converted safety, Feeney's game lacks power and strength but he has top-shelf movement skills, long arms (33") and coverage prowess. Apr 30 - 5:37 PM

Washington OLB Travis Feeney (sports hernia) did not participate in the program's Pro Day on Thursday.

Feeney actually competed at the NFL Scouting Combine despite his health issues, but following the events in Indianapolis, he underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder indicated that he considered the procedure to be relatively minor, calling it a "real quick surgery" before adding that there's "no pain." As for his work at the Combine, Feeney logged some impressive numbers including a 40-yard dash time of 4.50 seconds, a stellar 40-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-10 broad jump. He should be healthy once camp opens for the mystery date that is his future NFL team.

Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell noted that Washington OLB Travis Feeney has "blossomed into a big, athletic linebacker."

"[Feeney] showed explosion that we would have never expected back in 2011 when we scouted him out of Pinole Valley," Farrell wrote. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder sizzled in Indianapolis at the combine despite dealing with a sports hernia, leading his group with a 40-inch vertical jump while also recording a 10-foot-10 broad jump and 4.50 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Per Farrell and fellow Rivals writer Adam Gorney, Feeney "showed excellent speed and explosiveness" in recording 56 tackles (17.5 for loss), eight sacks and three forced fumbles this past season. His possible push from Day 3 to Day 2 in the draft is made all the more remarkable for the fact that he had only two outstanding offers on National Signing Day--from Arizona and eventual home Washington.

Washington OLB Travis Feeney ran the second-fastest linebacker 40-yard dash time at 4.50 seconds and led the group with a 40-inch vertical jump despite suffering from a sports hernia.

At a confirmed 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, Feeney also finished No. 2 among linebackers with a 10-foot-10 broad jump. That he wasn't 100 percent is stunning. "Obviously, his name is buzzing," wrote NFL.com's Rand Getlin. Coming into the event as a Day 3 prospect, Feeney just may have started the ball rolling on a seat upgrade into Day 2. He's not just a workout warrior. Last year, Feeney earned second-team all-conference and UW Defensive MVP honors after posting 17.5 TFL and eight sacks as Hau'oli Kikaha's heir at the "Buck" position. Some see a 'tweener here while others see an edge rusher who can also play in the space. This is what Feeney says: "I want to an outside backer, I want to be covering, I want to be playing hook drops, I want to be covering tight ends. But whatever they want me to do, I don’t mind getting after the quarterback either. I wouldn’t mind pass rushing some plays and getting after it. A mix of that would be great for me."

Washington redshirt senior LB Travis Feeney will attend the East West Shrine Game.

Feeney is an emerging talent who has caught the attention of evaluators thanks to his athleticism. However, Tony Pauline has reported that Feeney is dealing with a shoulder issue and could be red-flagged because of it. If you remember, Chris Polk also had shoulder issues out of Washington and he ended up as an undrafted free agent.

Washington redshirt junior LB Travis Feeney has "unsettling" medicals, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Uh oh. "The athletic prospect is a three down defender that’s been productive on the college level at a variety of linebacker spots," Pauline wrote. "He possesses second day football and athletic abilities but from what I’ve been told his injury history, which centers around multiple shoulder issues, will red-flag Feeney, potentially into the late rounds." The 6-foot-3, 223-pounder has flashed "dominant potential" at times this year, according to NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks.

Washington redshirt junior LB Travis Feeney is the type of high-motor defender "with a knack for finding the ball and creating disruption at the point of attack" that NFL scouts love, notes NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks.

Feeney flashed "dominant potential" in Washington's 49-3 punking of Arizona, per Brooks. The 6-foot-3, 223-pounder logged 11 tackles, 4.5 TFL, two sacks, two forced fumbles and a pass breakup. TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline recently reported that NFL scouts are now viewing Feeney as "top 100 material."

According to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline, "scouts are now starting to believe" that Washington redshirt junior LB Travis Feeney is "top 100 material."

"Area scouts stamped Feeney as a late round pick entering the year, an opinion I disagreed with back in August. And from what I’m told scouts are now starting to believe he’s top 100 material," Pauline wrote. The Washington prospect had a monster performance against Arizona, recording 11 tackles, with 4.5 TFLs, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and a pass break up. Pauline adds that "good workouts and clean medical reports prior to the draft," should "solidify him as a third round pick."

Washington redshirt junior LB Travis Feeney showed "burst, bend and enough strength to harass off the edge," in Washington's 17-12 win over USC.

"The 6-foot-3, 223 pound Feeney was everywhere, showing terrific closing speed and an explosive pop to rattle Kessler, who struggled from the outset in this game, ultimately completing just 16 of 29 passes for 156 yards and two interceptions without a touchdown," Rang wrote. The Washington prospect sacked the USC signal caller three times on the night, making the last one count, as it helped the Huskies seal the victory.

Washington redshirt junior LB Travis Feeney "is a terrific athlete and a three down prospect at linebacker," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"He’s quick up the field defending the run, gets depth on pass drops and also stands out in pursuit. I think his instincts need a bit of brushing up but believe if he plays productive, mistake free football Freeney could move into the third round," Pauline wrote. The Washington prospect played every game last season, and recorded 9 starts for the Huskies. While Feeney has the ideal length and frame for the position, he'll definitely need to bulk up for the next level. Last season, Feeney was awarded the "Most Outstanding Special Teams Player" award by Huskies' coaches.

Washington redshirt junior LB Travis Feeney "possesses the gangly frame that seems better suited to strong safety in the NFL," CBS Sports' Rob Rang observes.

"Feeney will have to put on weight and gain strength to earn anything more than late round considerations. And he must improve his consistency as an open-field tackler. He projects best as an in-the-box strong safety or weakside linebacker in the 4-3 alignment and could earn time to develop with an NFL club because of his proficiency on special teams," Rang wrote. The Washington prospect has the ideal length for the position, measuring in at 6-foot-3, however, Feeney may have to bulk up if he plans to survive in the middle at the next level.

Washington redshirt junior LB Travis Feeney is an "emerging player to keep an eye on," according to Scout Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

"Raw right now but long, rangy and plenty of flashes on tape," Weidl tweeted. Feeney was scarcely over 200 pounds when he arrived on campus, and he's spent the past few years -- including a redshirt campaign -- in the weight room attempting to bulk up. At 6-foot-3, he has the frame to add weight, and progress has been steady but slow. He's up to around 224, and the NFL would surely like him to add 15 or so more pounds without losing any speed. Keep an eye on him this fall.

Washington redshirt freshman Travis Feeney has moved from S to LB due to the large amount of talent at safety.

Feeney stands at 6'4/209, so hopefully he can fill out his frame after the position switch. While redshirting last year, the freshman won the defensive scout team MVP award. "He fits there really nicely," head coach Steve Sarkisian said. "He's long and he's rangy. We're trying to find a home for him. We'll see if it works."
