    DWash's draft position will be determined by his 40 time. He has value as a reliable receiver and able blocker. So he will be drafted in the 1st 4 rds on that alone.

    At UGA he was hindered by feet and ankle injuries. His physical exams will influence his draft position. But the 40 will determine if he has the speed to become a volume receiver at the TE position.

    Once DWash gets up to speed, with long strides, he moves pretty well. But accelerating from stop takes him a while to get to top speed. I could see a 4.8 being his 40 ceiling. Will be interesting to see how his game speed translates to the track.

    His measurables were just posted. Looks like he might have trimmed up a little to improve his results. And it must have been the hair- they have him at 6-6.5. He carry’s himself closer to 6-8

    Wing span is crazy.

    As usual, @UGADad20 you make a great point. I'd just add that while, Washington's wingspan, strength, hands and speed aren't issues (the first two of those being phenomenal), my impression is that he has something to prove in the agility, quickness and acceleration departments. It's interested that those three qualities are what make Bowers so exceptional.
