Analysis

Strengths

Very good body and arm length. Outstanding timed speed. Can threaten vertically and has explosive, big-play ability. Very competitive. Emotional leader driven to succeed. Very hard worker. Willing blocker.

Weaknesses

Classic body-catcher with small, skillet hands -- consistently smothers and traps the ball. Does not track the deep ball well and adjustments look unnatural. Very inconsistent hand placement. Has a very skinny build and plays small in the run game -- does not finish blocks. A bit straight-linish -- not elusive after the catch. Tends to build to speed. Does not show a good feel for zones. Disappears for stretches. Could stand to improve beating the jam.

Bottom Line

A speed merchant with raw catching skills, Washington is still developing as a football player and has the type of determination to become a success story if he continues to refine his hands and work at the craft.
