Bio: 
Four-year starter who earned First Team All-Big 12 honors in 2016 and 2017. Led the conference with 1,549 receiving yards on 74 receptions and caught 13 touchdowns as a senior. Led Oklahoma State with 1,380 receiving yards and 10 receiving TDs on 71 catches as a junior. Named Second Team All-Big 12 and posted a team-high 1,087 receiving yards and 10 receiving scores on 53 receptions in 2015. Led the team with six TD receptions as a true freshman and caught 28 passes for 456 yards.
Pos: 
Explosive vertical receiver with a nose for the end zone. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, runs crisp pass routes and separates from defenders. Always comes back to the ball to make himself an available target, extends his hands and snatches the ball from the air. Displays quick, strong hands, makes difficult over-the-shoulder receptions downfield and keeps his concentration. Effective on crossing patterns, makes receptions at full speed without breaking stride and easily tracks the pass in the air.
Neg: 
Does not display a true second gear. Benefited from the wide-open system at Oklahoma State. Lacks classic size and may struggle with jams at the next level. Runs a limited route tree and must polish his route running.
Analysis: 
Washington was a productive college receiver who went on to show a lot of skill and ability during Senior Bowl practices. He offers solid size and speed and should develop into a productive pro receiver once he learns the NFL game.
