Donald Washington
6-0/199 Ohio State
4.52 Junior

Pros: Has nice speed and willing in run support. Has decent hips.

Cons: Lacks ideal hips. Gets turned around too much in coverage. Misses too many tackles and not as capable a tackler as his size should merit.

Overview: Washington is a nice collegiate No. 2 corner, but that often projects as a decent No. 4 corfner at the next level. Not very productive, intercepting only 2 passes and breaking up 4 passes in his three-year career.

NFL Forecast: He has safety size, but I don't see him getting much work there since he plays like a 180-pounder when it comes to run support. He could push for playing time on the bench, but at best he's an average No. 3 corner. More than likely to stick, he'll have to play well early on special teams. But even then, he'll likely not rise much higher than fourth on the depth chart. A guy that I could see playing a couple of seasons in the pros, but players of his caliber come along all the time and he'll probably be replaced by the end of his rookie contract.

ATL Forecast: Washington has good size and could help him land a practice squad spot in Atlanta, but he'd be no higher the fifth on the depth chart, and only if he beats out Irons, showing good ability on special teams. More than likely, he'll just be relegated to the practice squad in Year One, in hopes that they can develop his size more in subsequent years. But really has little long-term value in Atlanta besides a special teams player.

Value: At best, take him in the seventh round if you think you can develop his size as a reserve corner.
