Biography: Three-year starter who posted 45 tackles/1 interceptions/8 pass breakups as a senior after putting up 59/2/4 the prior year. Struggled with a knee injury last year.
Positives: Nice-sized cornerback who's rarely challenged by opposing signal callers. Plays with good quickness, displays a burst to the ball out of his plant and wraps up tackling. Fluid flipping his hips in transition with opponents off the line. Gives effort defending the run.
Negatives: Must improve the consistency of his backpedal. Bites on ball fakes.
Analysis: Washington was a steady player for South Florida and is a solid developmental prospect who needs to polish his game. He offers potential as a ninth defensive back on an NFL roster but must do well on special teams this summer.
