STRENGTHS: Tall, athletic frame with easy joint flexibility...long arms and extends well to reel-in off-target throws...easy acceleration and release, wasting little time getting vertical with long strides - shows a second gear on downfield patterns...some lower body suddenness to burst out of his breaks...nice downfield adjustments, using his body well to gain position with natural body control and lean...legit deep threat and averaged 17.9 yards per catch as a senior...known as a team leader and pushes himself...good senior production with a team-best 893 receiving yards and double-digit receiving scores.
WEAKNESSES: Very thin-muscled and leaner-than-ideal for his height...needs to continue and get stronger, not as physical as he looks - added only 10 pounds since arriving in Columbia...not a natural hands-catcher and too many throws bounce off his mitts...displays some hip tightness and struggles to dip in/out of his breaks or be a consistent threat after the catch...struggles with the nuances of the position, including raw route running and poor field awareness - too many mental errors with his footwork along the sideline or at the top of his route...late to locate the ball and doesn't always appear on the same page as his QB or teammates - too much miscommunication...only average career production for a two-year starter with 100 career catches
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.
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.
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
