PLAYERS
Brandon Washington
Round 6, Pick 200
Position: G
Class:  Jr
School: Miami (FL)
HT: 6'3"
WT: 330 lbs.
40 Time: 5.15
Conference: ACC
Biography: Two-year starter experienced at both left guard and left tackle. All-conference selection as a sophomore.

Positives: Well-sized blocker with a developing game. Sets with a wide base, stays square and chips defenders, knocking them from their angle of attack. Possesses a wide body and blocks down on defenders or engulfs them altogether. Quickly sets up in pass protection, flashes footwork off the edge and uses good body positioning to seal defenders from the action. Works his hands throughout the play and jolts opponents with good punch.

Negatives: Not light on his feet and rumbles around the field. Must improve his use of blocking angles. Overextends and lunges into blocks.

Analysis: Washington is a big-bodied college left tackle who's better off at guard in the NFL. He possesses the size, strength and overall football skills to eventually develop into a starter but needs to become more technically sound.

Projection: 5th
