Draft 2013

Pick No.188

Selected By: Chicago Bears

Round: 6

Pick (Overall): 20 (188)

Pick Analysis: Washington was named to the 2012 Butkus Award preseason watch list prior to the season, despite lacking much starting experience. That?s the sort of respect that those who know college football have for his physical attributes and potential as a pass rush force.

Washington was a top-150 national high school prospect out of Georgia, but still redshirted his first season on campus. He played in every game of the 2009 season, starting one and making 13 tackles, five for loss and four sacks. As a sophomore, he started eight of 12 games played (missed one due to a concussion) and was credited with 24 tackles, three for loss, and a sack. It appeared he was on his way to a big season in 2011, starting three of the first five contests before being suspended two games due to an October arrest for speeding and driving under the influence (he received community service, alcohol/drug education program, probation). He finished with six starts in 12 games, with 17 tackles, six for loss and five sacks. Washington's senior season didn't match up to the preseason hype, as he only managed 22 tackles (3 for loss), and half of a sack.
