More watch list love for Kikaha, Thompson, Shelton

Another couple of preseason watch lists rolled out on Monday morning, and a familiar trio of Washington Huskies players again made the cut.

LB Shaq Thompson and DT Danny Shelton were each named to the 123-player watch list for the Rotary Lombardi Award, which seeks each season to honor the nation's top offensive lineman or top defensive front seven player.

Also, Thompson and OLB Hau'oli Kikaha were each named to the Butkus Award watch list for the nation's top linebacker.

Thompson, Kikaha and Shelton have already made a handful of watch list appearances, with each player also being named to the Nagurski and Bednarik Award watch lists. Shelton is on the Outland Trophy watch list, and Thompson is also on the Hornung Award watch list.
