More Trojans for Jaguars

The Jaguars finished off their 2008 draft by selecting their second former USC Trojan, running back Chauncey Washington. Washington measures in at 6'1, 210 lbs., and has battled injuries throughout his collegiate career after being a highly touted prospect out of Torrence, California.

Washington is a bruising between the tackles running back that seldom fumbles. He's a quick, but not fast competitor that will play hurt. Chauncey does not have good hands and will likely not be used much in the passing game.

With Washington, the Jaguars have a running back that will compete with last year's undrafted free agent out of Sam Houston State, D.D. Terry for the third running back spot behind Fred Taylor and Maurice Jones-Drew.

Not as physical a back as I would have expect given his physical make up. More of a dancer then power back. Ran the hole, but his feet tend to stop on contact. Adequate catch and run after skills. Has solid back up and special teams potential. Good cutback skills and vision to see the backside. Has plus hands and overall receiving skills. Has had a number of injuries to go along with academic problems. Has mid round draft potential
