Lions selected Washington RB Dwayne Washington with the No. 236 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Washington (6'1/223) left school as a redshirt junior despite making just 13 starts, logging 1,311 yards and 17 touchdowns on 226 carries (5.8 YPC) and catching 41 passes. He missed the final four games of 2015 with an ankle injury. A terrific athlete, Washington ripped up the UW Pro Day with a 4.44 forty, 10-foot-7 broad jump, and strong agility scores. Washington is still developing as an inside runner, but offers the traits to make it work and impressive passing-game chops for such a big back. He's worth monitoring as a deep sleeper.

Steelers selected Washington OLB Travis Feeney with the No. 220 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Feeney (6'4/230) made 32 starts at UW, tallying 33 career tackles for loss, 15.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and four interceptions. He earned second-team All-Pac 12 as a senior. Also a prolific special teamer throughout his career, Feeney blew up the Combine with a 4.5-flat forty, 40-inch vertical and 10-foot-10 broad jump. A converted safety, Feeney's game lacks power and strength but he has top-shelf movement skills, long arms (33") and coverage prowess.

Washington junior QB Jeff Lindquist is switching tight end for the 2016 campaign.

Lindquist was in the mix to start in 2015 before freshman QB Jake Browning took control of the reigns in August. Browning would have his shaky moments in 2015, but locked in down the stretch and is the expected starter for 2016. The 6-foot-3, 246-pound Lindquist shifts over to tight end. During a 7-on-7 drill on Monday, he showed off his hands, making a nice catch over CB Jordan Miller.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt relays that Washington RB Dwayne Washington's "hands weren't [good]" during Thursday's Pro Day.

"[Washington's] positional workout was good," Brandt wrote, "but his hands weren't and [he] had some dropped passes." Given that he 6-foot-1, 223-pound back caught 25 balls for 315 yards and three touchdowns last season -- and has 40 catches over the last two years combined -- his Thursday butterfingers aren't the norm. Fingers and hands aside, Washington showed off a nice combination of speed and strength in his Pro Day testing, running the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds and lifting the bar 21 times during the bench press.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt noted that Washington LB Cory Littleton "had a solid workout" during Thursday's Pro Day.

Littleton logged 40-yard dash times of 4.76 and 4.73 seconds while posting jumps of 32 1/2 inches (vertical) and 9-foot-11 (broad). The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder came on to post the best overall year of his collegiate career in 2015. Among the stats that he recorded, 63 tackles (11 for loss), six sacks and a pair of passes defended. He failed to intercept a pass last season, but analyst Brandt noted that on the whole, he "catches the ball well in space." A pick late on Day 3 or undrafted free agency likely await Littleton when all is said and done in Chicago at the end of the month.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes that Washington TE Joshua Perkins has "some outstanding pass-catching film and the natural skill to make a Sunday roster."

During Thursday's Pro Day, Perkins logged a 40-yard dash of 4.68 seconds, a three-cone drill of 6.96 seconds and a short shuttle of 4.38 seconds. Pauline likes what he's seen on tape -- last season, the 6-foot-3, 223-pound tight end caught 36 passes for 539 yards and three touchdowns -- but wonders about Perkins' future position. Wrote the analyst, "The question is, does he line up as a move tight end/H-back, or is he a big possession receiver?" In October, NFL Media's Chad Reuter drew a comparison to former Cal TE Richard Rogers, as he believes both Rogers and Perkins have a knack for making the middle of the field their own.

Washington OLB Travis Feeney (sports hernia) did not participate in the program's Pro Day on Thursday.

Feeney actually competed at the NFL Scouting Combine despite his health issues, but following the events in Indianapolis, he underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder indicated that he considered the procedure to be relatively minor, calling it a "real quick surgery" before adding that there's "no pain." As for his work at the Combine, Feeney logged some impressive numbers including a 40-yard dash time of 4.50 seconds, a stellar 40-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-10 broad jump. He should be healthy once camp opens for the mystery date that is his future NFL team.
Apr 3 - 1:56 PM

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt noted that Washington WR Jaydon Mickens proved to be "really quick" during his Pro Day on Thursday.

Among the numbers Mickens posted on Thursday's Pro Day, a 40-yard dash of 4.51 and 4.52 seconds, a 35 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 3.87-second run of the 20-yard shuttle and a 6.58-second dash through the three-cone drill. The latter two results particularly impressed Brandt and showcased that element of quickness he spoke to. Last season, Mickens caught 58 passes for 692 yards (11.9 yards per reception) and a pair of touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 174-pound wideout is a likely street free agent following the draft, but could offer help to a team in need of a slot receiver or, perhaps, a return specialist.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline noted that Washington RB Dwayne Washington's "film was impressive in 2015 [when he was on his game]."

Washington had his Pro Day on Thursday, running the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds while also showcasing an impressive strength element for his position when the 6-foot-1, 223-pounder notched 21 reps on the bench press. Last season, Washington appeared in eight games (six starts). He missed four contests due to a knee injury. Washington rushed for just 282 yards and four touchdowns, but he did average a meaty 6.0 YPC. He did not average fewer than 5.3 YPC in any one of his three seasons with the Huskies.

Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell noted that Washington OLB Travis Feeney has "blossomed into a big, athletic linebacker."

"[Feeney] showed explosion that we would have never expected back in 2011 when we scouted him out of Pinole Valley," Farrell wrote. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder sizzled in Indianapolis at the combine despite dealing with a sports hernia, leading his group with a 40-inch vertical jump while also recording a 10-foot-10 broad jump and 4.50 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Per Farrell and fellow Rivals writer Adam Gorney, Feeney "showed excellent speed and explosiveness" in recording 56 tackles (17.5 for loss), eight sacks and three forced fumbles this past season. His possible push from Day 3 to Day 2 in the draft is made all the more remarkable for the fact that he had only two outstanding offers on National Signing Day--from Arizona and eventual home Washington.

The Chiefs were fined $250,000 and stripped a 2016 third-round and a 2017 sixth-round picks for illegally tampering with Jeremy Maclin last offseason.

It's a bit surprising that the league has decided to be punitive with the Chiefs over a relatively common practice. Kansas City had been set to pick No. 91 overall in the third round.
Mar 9 - 6:17 PM

Washington OLB Travis Feeney ran the second-fastest linebacker 40-yard dash time at 4.50 seconds and led the group with a 40-inch vertical jump despite suffering from a sports hernia.

At a confirmed 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, Feeney also finished No. 2 among linebackers with a 10-foot-10 broad jump. That he wasn't 100 percent is stunning. "Obviously, his name is buzzing," wrote NFL.com's Rand Getlin. Coming into the event as a Day 3 prospect, Feeney just may have started the ball rolling on a seat upgrade into Day 2. He's not just a workout warrior. Last year, Feeney earned second-team all-conference and UW Defensive MVP honors after posting 17.5 TFL and eight sacks as Hau'oli Kikaha's heir at the "Buck" position. Some see a 'tweener here while others see an edge rusher who can also play in the space. This is what Feeney says: "I want to an outside backer, I want to be covering, I want to be playing hook drops, I want to be covering tight ends. But whatever they want me to do, I don’t mind getting after the quarterback either. I wouldn’t mind pass rushing some plays and getting after it. A mix of that would be great for me."

Washington signed four-star LB Camilo Eifler.

Eifler committed to Washington in July and held firm to his word on National Signing Day. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder was drawn in by the environment on campus, saying, "I chose Washington because I felt the trust from Coach Petersen in building a program with academic excellence and athletic success. I felt very comfortable with the team and it felt like home." He also showed a nice head on his shoulders when he indicated that another reason he chose the Huskies is that he would have job opportunities in Seattle should the whole football thing not work out for him. Eifler's still raw at linebacker, having transitioned over from defensive end two years ago, but Scout.com's Greg Biggins notes that he has "developed in to an athletic, physical linebacker who can run and hit."

Washington sophomore DT Elijah Qualls is "a force against the run and a sneaky good pass-rusher," writes ESPN's Ted Miller.

The 311-pound Qualls missed three games due to injury last year but really came on strong at the end of the season, posting a sack and multiple pressures in the Heart of Dallas Bowl victory over Southern Miss. "[Qualls'] absence wasn't catastrophic due to strong work from replacement Greg Gaines, who figures to join the starting lineup this fall beside Qualls," Miller wrote. "If you're looking to buy stock in a Pac-12 defensive player, Qualls might be your man." Washington's Pac-12 best defense is going to be vicious again.

Washington signed four-star ATH Isaiah Gilchrist.

Gilchrist is a native of Bellevue, Washington, and opted for his home-state squad over the likes of Arizona, Cal and Oregon. As to what position the 5-foot-10, 180-pound athlete might play, stay tuned. He could project to either side of the ball, as he's shown pop as both a corner and a running back. Wide receiver's another possibility in the mix here. ESPN 300 believes that "with more physical maturity, his true position should become more evident."
