Arizona Cardinals: 5 Postseason collegiate bowl prospects
5. Adolphus Washington – DT
Ohio State – Senior
6-4, 295 Pounds
Est draft round: 1st-3rd round
A preseason favorite for a lot of scouts and front offices, Adolphus Washington went from certain top-15 selection to outside looking in for the first round. If not for some legal problems, Adolphus becomes the next Aaron Donald in some scouting circles.
Before the legal trouble, Washington is a beastly defensive tackle who fits perfectly in the Cardinals 3-4 scheme, and could possibly become the next Dan Williams if he were to bulk up. I see him as a defensive end, opposite Calais Campbell. His unbelievable use of his hands makes him very attractive in many zone schemes, but he should be a block-eater the Cardinals desperately need.
Don’t worry Cardinals fans, I will be doing player evaluations very soon, with the combine fast approaching, and the bowl games (Senior Bowl, Shrine Game, NFLPA Bowl) in the rear view mirror. Can’t wait.
