Biography: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after leading the team in tackles posting 109/11/2. Also recorded three interceptions and broke up a pass last season. Junior totals included 63/5.5/3. Special teams standout as a sophomore.

Positives: Explosive weak side linebacker whose game is on the rise. Breaks down well, quickly gets his hands up to protect himself, and makes plays in all directions of the field. Effectively collapses to the outside defending the run, immediately alters his angle of attack, and loses no momentum changing direction. Plays with a good degree of explosion, works hard get involved in the action yet remains disciplined with assignments. Gets depth on pass drops and shows ability playing over tight ends.

Negatives: Not forceful on the blitz. Struggles taking on blocks and gets caught up in the trash scraping laterally.

Analysis: Washington is an athletic prospect who significantly improved his game the past two seasons. His size is a limiting factor, yet he'll offer possibilities in a one-gap defense and should be a special teams standout at the next level.

Projection: 2nd
