Prospect Profile: Walter Washington

Walter Washington School: Temple
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 235 40: 4.73 Year: 4Jr

Bio: All-Conference selection as a junior, leading the team in passing posting 56.3%/2,207/10/6 as well as rushing with 222/889/15. Sophomore totals included 1,265 yards passing with an additional 579 yards on the ground in five starts.

Positives: Big, strong collegiate passer who may be best carrying the ball at the next level. Quick setting up in the pocket, displays a fluid delivery and big arm. Zips the outs or drives the pass downfield with speed. Bruising ball carrier who puts his shoulders into defenders and doles out punishment. Also has a slashing style and slips off defenders to pick up positive yardage. Waits for blocks to develop and picks his spots when carrying the ball. Displays a burst of speed. Does not go down easily.

Negatives: Wildly inaccurate throwing the ball and misses open receivers. Stares down targets from the get-go and does not show a sense of timing. Rarely hits targets in stride. Took most of his snaps out of the shotgun.

Analysis: While he made a poor choice entering the draft early, Washington's options may have been limited. That being the case, he is a project at quarterback yet displays a lot of skill carrying the ball. Unlikely to be draft, yet should be scooped up as a free agent and given repetitions at running back.
