Prospect Profile: Fabian Washington
Ht: 5-10.5 Wt: 188 40: 4.35 Year: 3Jr
Bio: Three-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors since his freshman campaign. Finished with 41/3/15 as a junior. Sophomore totals included 55/10/4.
Positives: Non-aggressive cover corner best backed off the line of scrimmage. Smooth backpedaling in reverse, loses nothing transitioning to run with opponents and fast in any direction of the field. Patient, quickly diagnoses plays and stays with the action. Fluid in all aspects and, at the same time, explosive. Displays a quick break on the pass, has a burst of closing speed, and can adjust or contort to make the interception. Fundamentally sound and shows excellent hands for the pick.
Negatives: Not the first volunteer in run support and would rather knock down than wrap up the ball carrier. Bites on receivers moves and gets beat.
Analysis: A fast corner who flashes on the scene, Washington's skills and playing style are best suited for a zone system or in man-off coverage. Needs to physically mature and add strength, yet could eventually develop into a starting cornerback or productive nickel player at the next level.
