Rooting for this guy. Watch this video. His story is very inspiring.
great story. definitely rooting for him.
(also, i think we'll keep 6 if a guy like this shows he's worth it.)
A speed merchant with raw catching skills, Washington is still developing as a football player and has the type of determination to become a success story if he continues to refine his hands and work at the craft.
He's a straight-line speed guy with terrible hands. He drops a lot of balls. He does not know how to adjust his hands. He is so skinny. He plays small and he doesn't block. He does not have immediately explosive acceleration. I thought he was a height-weight-speed guy. He's not even a B catcher. He's probably a C catcher. Someone will like him because of his speed but the ball will need to be dropped right in his belly. Man he is a scary catcher. If the ball goes anywhere outside of his frame, he has no hand placement and is flailing on balls that should have been caught.
Rooting for this guy too. He needs to get to the Ranch tomorrow and stand in front of the Juggs machine for about a thousand catches a day.
Shouldn't have he already done that. Can't catch. Simple as that. cut.
Jimmy Johnson used a 2nd round pick on a similar guy in Alexander Wright.
He's gotta learn to use his hands.
