imageDarnell Washington makes unreal one-hand catch to cap monster NFL combine performance

It simply wasn’t enough for Darnell Washington to run a speedy 4.65 40-yard dash at 264 pounds. Nor did obliterating the blocking shed in drills do enough for Washington to win the combine.

    If Darnell can stay healthy and if he puts in the work and study of the game at the pro level, which I’m Extremely Confident he will. I predict he’s gonna be a Super Star TE in the NFL in short order. I have to confess I Knew the man was a Beast before today. And I figured he’d do pretty well at the Combine. But for a man His Size he absolutely blew me away !! And I think he blew the evaluators away as well !! I Knew effort wouldn’t be a problem. And just his size alone gives him some advantages. But WOW !!’ That Dude is So athletic when you Really consider the things he can do at his size !! Now think about him not having to go to classes his Total focus on football. The NFL will refine him into an absolute Freak !!! Secretly Defenders will be thinking, Lord I hope one of my teammates makes the tackle before I have to Try !! 😀 Man he’s gonna hurt some folks in the secondary !!

    IMO, grossly under-utilized red zone opportunities for Big 0. Great to see him flash today…DGD!

    The most startling number above is 11 inches for the hands. And now we see what you can do with a hand the size of a first baseman’s mitt!

    Dawgs have had the best TE’s in the game the last two years. I have to say the talent was & is still there for many more 65-7 games. Big 0 always gives 110%. Should be #1 TE off the board!

    Granted, 11 inch hand is huge. But for his size, Bennett's 10 inch hand was more impressive.

    @navydawg and @thadec 100% and @SloanDawg 150%.

    But wow, there are many UGA haters out there. Look at the Twitter comments on the NFL Network feed: "OK catch on Saturday; not a catch on Sunday." "Looks awkward coming off the line of scrimmage." Too many "anti-SEC" comments to count.

    Not sure how much is real hate and how much is smoke - but he blew away the blocking sled, ran faster in the 40 than the media darling (Meyers from ND), made a nice catch ;-) and interviewed well.

    Will be really interesting to see how that TE group does on draft day.

    Don't forget that he got BOTH feet in. After playing your whole life at only needing one foot in, getting that second one in shows he is ready to play today. I predict a long NFL future for him.

    Lots of people were underutilized on offense save Ladd McConkey, whose role was bigger than his relative talent (not that McConkey isn't good but several guys on offense are better) but it is impossible to argue with the results: 29-1 and 2 national titles in the toughest conference in football.

    @BigFan Yeah those commenting were sweating whether his toe was barely in bounds or barely out of bounds in a no game drill !! 🙄 They didn’t bother to recognize the athleticism for a man That size to make That move !! Their probably 99% just everyday fans like me. But Be Assured the NFL guys saw it and took note !! I’m Extremely Confident his whole body of work increased his draft stock on Sat. And all those Dawg hating SEC hating fans, they just Hate that the Dawgs have Back2Back Nattys and are about to 3peat !! Go Dawgs !!

    With the right OC, Darnell will be an unstoppable force! He is a guaranteed first down no matter where the ball is placed....I'm betting he will be a first rounder! BTW, he was slightly out of bounds BUT the one hand catch with control was more impressive!
