Through an independent source the TFY Draft Preview learned that Tennessee's Kelley Washington was given a medical grade of either a 1 or 2 by all thirty-two teams at the combine.
What does this mean exactly? A "1" is the best grade a prospect can
receive while "5" is the worst. For comparison; last year EJ Henderson
decided to stay in school after doctors told him a grade of "4"
would've been assigned to him based on the health of his back…and that is a
failing number for most franchises.
Washington's grade means he's cleared to play and the MRI's came out clean. What
is does not explicitly tell us is how teams perceive the potential damage or
non-damage should he receive another blow to his head/neck region, and that will
be an important intangible when finalizing his ultimate draft grade.
We stress; this was a report told to us rather than something we saw.
