Bio: 
Two-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-ACC and made 43 tackles with team highs in interceptions (four) and pass breakups (10) in 2017. Lost his starting job as a junior but still contributed 30 tackles, two interceptions and six PBUs. Earned Third Team All-ACC honors in 2015 and posted 56 tackles (seven for loss), four interceptions, two sacks and six pass breakups.
Pos: 
Underrated cornerback who has been dismissed in scouting circles. Displays awareness and solid instincts and effectively times his pass defenses. Quick-footed, displays a burst to the ball out of his plant and competes hard to defend the throw. Reads the receiver’s eyes and gets his head back around to locate passes in the air. Also effective facing the action. Stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks and shows good hands for the interception. Gives effort defending the run and wraps up tackling.
Neg: 
Small and outmatched against larger receivers. Not forceful on the blitz. Indecisive.
Analysis: 
Washington was a reliable cornerback at Louisville and possesses the skills and speed to line up in dime packages at the next level.
