CBS Sports' Rob Rang writes that Oregon senior DE Tony Washington "made a few splashy plays against the Bruins" on Saturday.
Washington had a strip sack and fumble on UCLA star QB Brett Hundley early in the contest. He also tipped a pass that forced the Bruins to attempt a field goal. Washington broke through in his first season as a full-time starter last year, earning honorable mention all-conference accolades with 60 tackles -- 12 for loss -- 7.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. NFL.com's Mike Huguenin named the 6-foot-3, 250-pound Washington the best preseason Pac-12 breakout candidate over the summer. Oct 13 - 2:21 AM

Oregon senior DE Tony Washington has received high marks from area scouts for his NFL potential," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Washington is tied for the team-lead in sacks (2.0) in 2014 and has received high marks from area scouts for his NFL potential, but he needs to show a consistent plan and do a better job with his hand use on rush attempts to keep the UCLA blockers guessing," Brugler wrote. While Washington may not have the ideal size and power in the trenches, he is able to make up for it with "his athleticism," which "stands out with first step acceleration and fluidity to bend the arc and blow up the pocket," according to Brugler. Scouts will definitely be watching to see if Washington can provide consistent pressure on Hundley versus UCLA this weekend.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang writes that Oregon senior DE Tony Washington "offers an intriguing skill-set certain to draw the attention of scouts throughout the NFL."

Washington broke through in his first season as a full-time starter last year, earning honorable mention all-conference accolades with 60 tackles -- 12 for loss -- 7.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. "He possesses broad shoulders and with additional weight added in his lower body could bulk up to play defensive end in the NFL. He is surprisingly balanced and fluid in his transition when in coverage, as well," Rang wrote. NFL.com's Mike Huguenin named the 6-foot-3, 250-pound Washington the best preseason Pac-12 breakout candidate last month. "Washington can boost his stock by gaining strength as a pass rusher, as too often he's controlled by opponents if they're able to latch on," Rang wrote. "As he learns to trust his eyes and flow quicker to the ball, Washington should be even more productive, potentially making him a top 100 candidate in the 2015 draft."

NFL.com's Mike Huguenin believes Oregon senior DE Tony Washington is the best Pac 12 breakout candidate.

Washington, who helped replace Dion Jordan last year, collected 7.5 sacks in 2013, matching Jordan's highest career output in college. "Washington is just 6-3 and 245 pounds and can't play end at the next level, but his high-level athleticism will appeal to NFL scouts," Huguenin wrote. "Washington held up well against the run in 2013, his first season as a starter, and he has the potential to get into double-figures in sacks this fall. If he does that, he will be known nationally."

NFL.com's Dan Greenspan believes Oregon junior DE Tony Washington looks to be the Ducks' replacement for Dion Jordan.

Washington saw a ton of snaps in the Fiesta Bowl since Jordan was hurting from an injured shoulder. Greenspan adds "there is a lot of buzz from summer workouts about incoming freshman Torrodney Prevot." Either way, it will be difficult to find a versatile defensive weapon like Dion Jordan.
