Analysis

Strengths

Has experience as a 3-4 OLB and defensive end. Can bend, dip and rip at top of his rush to turn the corner. Still growing into his frame. Flashes NFL edge-setting potential. Plays with good bend and arm extension at point of attack. Wraps up his targets and ends the play as a tackler.

Weaknesses

Snap-and-go pass rusher with no real plan of attack. Limited counter moves, relying on athleticism over skill. Has small hands and doesn't win with them enough. Needs to improve play strength. Can be mismatched in man coverage. Doesn't always seize opportunities to turn the corner as a rusher and will take wide angles to the quarterback. Instincts aren't there yet.

Bottom Line

Washington's lower body could use more bulk, but as a 3-4 OLB, he has enough play strength. He's technically proficient against the run on the edge and should continue to improve as a pass rusher with more work in that area during camps. Washington lacks dynamic qualities against the run or pass, but should be able to get into a camp.
