Last year at Auburn, 6'3", 247-pound Marcus Washington, Indianapolis's second-round draft choice, played defensive end. The Colts are moving him to strongside linebacker, to provide some relief for 35-year-old Cornelius Bennett. "We'll start him as an outside rusher in nickel situations," coach Jim Mora says of Washington, "and eventually work him in as linebacker." "Rushing the passer comes naturally to me," Washington says. "I was a speed rusher in college, coming off the corner. Just dip the shoulder and go. But I know I'm gonna have to put in a couple more moves. As far as playing the Sam backer, well, I'm learning from the master, Cornelius Bennett. He's been great, trying to teach me as much as he can about the position. It's a great spot to be in."
