Gang Green locked up another draft pick today by signing 7th round pick Strong Safety Rashad Washington of Kansas State.

The Jets selected Washington with the 236th choice overall. The 6-1, 217-pound native of Wichita, KS, was a captain for the Wildcats as a senior. In 49 games, with 24 starts, he recorded 195 tackles, with three sacks, 24 passes defensed and three interceptions for 107 yards in returns with two touchdowns. He entered K-State as a heralded running back and switched to defense prior to his sophomore season.

Washington is the third of the Jets' 10 2004 draft choices to sign thus far. Fifth round selection Erik Coleman signed with the Jets on May 26 and defensive end Trevor Johnson, a seventh round pick (234th overall), signed on May 28.
