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." Jun 21 - 10:04 PM

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.
