NFL Draft Scouting Report: Leon Washington

Leon Washington/RB/Florida St

Full Name: Leon Washington School:  Florida State

Ht: 5-8.5   Wt: 200   40: 4.45      Yr: 4Sr

Pos: Shifty, versatile back productive in a variety of ways. Runs with excellent vision, quick footed and displays the ability to slash off defenders or avoid tackles. Possesses a compact build and runs low to the ground with excellent pad level. Squirms through small creases in the defense. Sets defenders up, makes them miss and possesses outstanding open field running skills.

Neg: Not a ball carrier who picks up yardage off initial contact. Marginal strength as a blocker. More quick then fast and cannot run to daylight.

Analysis: Quite similar to former Seminole running back Warrick Dunn, Washington has solid potential for the next level but may be limited to certain schemes. Could be a terrific third down back or rotational ball carrier.
