Florida State RB Leon Washington adds depth to the Jets RB corps.
The Jets added depth at running back with the pick acquired from Kansas City for Herm Edwards (#117) by selecting Florida State RB Leon Washington.
Washington (5’8” – 201 Lbs) was a two year starter for the Seminoles. He rushed for 430 yards on 97 carries with 3 TD’s last season and added 267 yards from 25 catches. His scouting report touts him as a quick, elusive, slash-type runner who is aggressive and breaks tackles. He could be a good third down back in the NFL.
The Jets next selection is in the fifth round (#138) and then they have one more selection in the seventh round (#220) to end the draft.
