Biography: Senior totals included 19/4/2 after junior totals of 13/2.5/1. Started 12 games as a sophomore and ended the year with 36/4.5/3.
Positives: Adequately sized defensive lineman with possibilities as a two-gap end or inside rusher. Flashes strength on the inside, displays good movement skills, and is solid changing direction. Pursues the action laterally, works his hands to protect himself, and is rarely off his feet. Fluid if asked to twist or stunt. Plays with good lean and gets off the snap with a quick first step.
Negatives: Displays minimal explosion in his game. Struggles getting off blocks. Marginally productive throughout his college career.
Analysis: Washington is a prospect who looks the part on the field, yet he does not make the plays many think he should. He has the athleticism to be used in a variety of systems, yet he must really pick up the intensity and productivity to make a roster at the next level.
