    There has never been a running back named "Washington" that has ever won anything in New York.

    Another illogical pick.

    That's a joke right? So I wonder if this means that Mangini and Tannenbaum had Washington over Calhoun and White on their table?

    The guy is fast and he comes from a big time program.

    Strengths:
    A tremendous athlete...Has good speed and is very quick...A natural runner with good instincts and vision...Has a solid and sturdy build...Does a superb job as a receiver out of the backfield...Will make defenders miss...Dangerous in the open field...Runs low and plays bigger than he is...Solid blocker...Versatile and can help a team in many ways...Hard worker and team leader with top intangibles.

    Weaknesses:
    Lacks ideal height...Has some durability questions...Not very powerful and won't break tackles or do much after contact...Needs to get stronger...Was never the primary ball carrier in college...Upside is limited by his physical shortcomings.

    Notes:
    Could be a poor-man's Warrick Dunn...Probably won't be an every-down running back at the next level due to his lack of ideal size...Could carve a niche for himself in a situational role by contributing as a runner, receiver and return man.

    Washington has been a very hard player to get a good feel for because of his constant rotating in and out of games. He is a very well built back with the power and strength to be an effective runner once he gets past the line of scrimmage. He can keep his feet vs. hard hits and has shown the ability to lower a shoulder to deliver a hard blow to tackler to gain the extra yard at the end of the run. He has the very quick feet, acceleration, vision, instincts and playing speed to make big plays and plays a lot of Ryan Moats who was drafted in the third round by the Philadelphia Eagles. On film, Washington is a tough football player and has the physique to hold up physically in the NFL, but he is going to have to prove that. Overall, Washington is going to be a very good NFL starting running back if used in a system similar to what the Eagles use. But if used in a more traditional NFL offense, he is best suited as a backup running back, starting third down back and punt returner. But be careful not to over-draft him because of his lack of size and experience carrying the offensive load on his back.

    Another smart versatile player who learns quickly.

    Has durability concerns. He's undersized at 5'7. Washington is versatile. I project him as a do everything backup. I don't see him as a future feature back.

    Ok, seems like a pretty good pick. Well, I guess now the debate of whether to get Jones it moot.

    Washington combined with what we already have coming back at running back, plus the additions of the Big men up front and we are setting ourselves up nicely next year for the run.

    Position: Running Back
    School: Florida State

    Status: Senior

    Height: 5-9

    Weight: 202

    40-Yard Dash: 4.50 (EST)


    Positives:
    Every time Leon Washington touches the ball he has the ability to take it to the house for six. He averaged 5.5 yards per carry over his four years as a Seminole. At Florida State he got the ball in a variety of ways; running the ball, catching passes out of the backfield, and occasionally touching the ball as a return man.

    Not only possessing excellent speed, at 5-9, 202 lbs he plays bigger than he is and runs behind his pads. His low center of gravity allows him to bounce off tacklers who fail to wrap him up, and not many corners and safeties want to take him on one on one in the open field. Overall, Leon Washington is a football player who brings the ability to do almost anything for his team. The more a player can bring to the NFL, the more opportunities he will have to touch the ball.

    Negatives:
    Unfortunately Leon Washington did not have the type of senior season he had hoped for. Only carrying the ball 91 times for 400 yards and only getting in the end zone three times his senior campaign was lackluster to say the least. Although he did become a better receiver, catching 19 passes for 255 yards and one touchdown.

    Washington was battling some nagging injuries, which caused him to miss two games as well as cause his season totals to drop as compared to his junior year. So durability will be a concern to NFL talent evaluators.

    Overview:
    Fortunately for Washington, he has more positives than negatives. He brings a variety of skills with him to the NFL. His ability to play special teams is especially important for the fact that he most likely will not be the starter. Overall he is a well rounded back. He runs the ball with power and speed, can catch the ball fairly well, and has the ability to return kicks if need be.
    Depending on pre-draft workouts, he could slip into the third round. His draft status is down not only because of his senior season, but also because of the potential four first-round running backs.

    NFL Comparison: Dominic Rhodes, Indianapolis Colts

    Huh ?

    And PFW has him rated in the top 100.
