TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes there’s no denying that Cincinnati senior WR Shaq Washington "offers next level ability."

"Entering the season Washington was stamped as a street free agent by scouts in part due to his 5-foot, 8-inch frame," Pauline wrote. The undersized talent hauled in 9 receptions for 126-yards, with one touchdown versus Memphis this past weekend. On the season, Washington has a team leading 26 catches in four games. Pauline notes that NFL teams "are rethinking their original opinion on this potential slot receiver/return specialist."
