SB Nation's Dan Kadar believes Ohio State senior DE Adolphus Washington "could be a breakout candidate moving to the three-technique position that Michael Bennett played last season."
The 6-foot-4, 288-pound Washington, a former five-star recruit, runs a 4.88 forty. Because of those measureables, he's just about assured of going higher in the draft than Bennett just did. In fact, NFL.com's Chad Reuter ranked Washington as the No. 14 senior draft prospect heading into the season. An NFL executive told NFL.com in January that Washington "jumps out in tape."

Ohio State senior DE Adolphus Washington "has quickness off the ball for his size, and although he will likely face a lot of double teams in 2015, his future might be as a difference-making 3-4 end at the next level," according to NFL.com's Chad Reuter.

The analyst ranks Washington as the No. 14 senior draft prospect heading into the season. "Shedding one-on-one blocks and exploding into the backfield throughout the Big Ten season will show scouts he's ready to take the next step no matter where they want him to line up," Reuter wrote. The 6-foot-4, 288-pound Washington, a former five-star recruit, runs a 4.88 forty. An NFL executive told NFL.com in January that Washington "jumps out in tape."

Ohio State junior DE Adolphus Washington is "a physical pass rusher," writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Washington, a former five-star recruit, runs a 4.88 forty. "Washington was an edge rusher his first two seasons in Columbus, but will move inside as a junior and likely start next to Michael Bennett at defensive tackle in 2014," Brugler wrote. "Washington is a physical pass rusher and with the help of new defensive line coach Larry Johnson, he's doing a better job vs. the run and adapting to his new responsibilities." The 6-foot-3, 295-pound teams with Bennett and Noah Spence to form a fearsome defensive line.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes sophomore DE Adolphus Washington could emerge as a force on the edge for Ohio State.

Weidl also called attention to Noah Spence, who is more of a speed and explosion rusher. "Washington has some big time power," Weidl tweeted. He "gave Taylor Lewan all sorts of problems. Sack and had him off balance throughout the tape." The Buckeyes return plenty of talented players, but the team did lose Johnathan Hankins and John Simon along their defensive line.
