Donald Washington, CB, Ohio State

Donald Washington's choice to enter the 2009 NFL Draft was a curious one. With Malcolm Jenkins gone he had a chance to earn more playing time and raise his stock tremendously. However, Washington is extremely talented and could surprise people at the next level. Washington has good size for a corner, and sturdily built to hold up well in run support. He's got very fluid hips and can turn and run with receivers when he needs to. Washington plays his best when he's playing zone defense and can use his athleticism to attack the ball and make plays. He recorded 102 tackles during his three year career with the Buckeyes. Washington also added 3 tackles for loss, 2 interceptions, 4 passes broken up in coverage, and forced a fumble in limited playing time. He returned both of his interceptions for touchdowns and two fumbles for over 40 yards each, showing off his big play ability. Washington is a late round prospect right now, but could see his stock rise if he works out well for NFL teams. Donald Washington was one of the biggest surprises of the NFL Combine. He only ran a 4.55 second 40 yard dash, but everyone ran slower than expected. The dazzling part of his performance was his 45 inch vertical leap and his 11 foot 3 inch broad jump. Washington obviously has the explosiveness to play corner in the NFL and may have shown enough for someone to take a flier on him late in the third round. Donald Washington lowered his 40 yard dash time to 4.52 seconds at his Pro Day workout. He is a bit of a question mark for some teams, but has shown the athleticism to develop into a very good number two corner. Washington will likely be selected in the mid-to-late part of round three.
