 Update

  12/19/17 - 2017 ALL-BIG 12 FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): WR James Washington, Oklahoma State Sr. Stamford, Texas/Stamford,...Washington was also the recipient of the 2017 Biletnikoff Award presented to the nation's top receiver. He will go down as one of the best and most productive receivers in Oklahoma State history and in the history of the Big 12 Conference. He finished the regular season with 69 catches for 1,423 yards and 12 touchdowns. Washington's 1,423 receiving yards and 118.6 receiving yards per game both led the FBS and his 12 touchdown receptions ranked fourth nationally. He led all FBS players with 17 catches of 30 yards or longer, 10 catches of 40 yards or longer and seven catches of 50 yards or longer. - Oklahoma State Football

12/07/17 - 2017 FRED BILETNIKOFF AWARD WINNER: James Washington, Oklahoma State,...Oklahoma State's James Washington is the 2017 recipient of the Biletnikoff Award presented to the nation's top receiver, it was announced tonight at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show in Atlanta. It was also announced at the event that Washington is a first team selection to the 2017 Walter Camp All-America Team. 2017 marks the third season that the Biletnikoff Award has been won by a player from Oklahoma State, as Justin Blackmon won the award in 2010 and again in 2011. OSU is the only school in the country with three Biletnikoff Awards to its credit.


 Overview

  A four-year starter at Oklahoma State, Washington arrived in Stillwater as a little-known recruit, but leaves as the most prolific wide receiver in school history, which is saying something considering the program has produced three first round picks at the position since 2004 (Rashaun Woods, Dez Bryant, Justin Blackmon). He joins Woods and Ryan Broyles as the only Big 12 receivers to surpass 1,000-yards receiving in three different seasons.
Washington looks more like a running back with his shorter, stocky build, but he has suction hands and is arguably the best finisher in this year’s wide receiver class. Although he needs to develop better nuance as a route runner and NFL press coverage will be a new challenge, Washington has the football character and ball skills to contribute early in his NFL career with the potential to be a solid No. 2 receiving option.

BACKGROUND
A three-star wide receiver recruit out of high school, James Washington was a big fish in a small pond in Stamford (around 3,000 population), starring as a multi-sport athlete, including All-District MVP honors in basketball, advancing to states in five events in track (won the triple jump and 100-meter dash in 2014) and earning All-Region honors in tennis, playing in the state doubles quarterfinals.

He led the Stamford football team to two straight Class 1A state championships his junior and senior years (combining for 46 touchdown catches over those two years), but had a tough time getting noticed by bigger college programs, originally committing to Texas State. Washington attended several football camps and eventually earned an offer from Oklahoma State, which also brought looks from TCU, Texas and others, but he stayed loyal to the Cowboys.

Washington earned immediate playing time as a true freshman, leading the team with six touchdown grabs. He assumed the No. 1 wide receiver role as a sophomore in 2015 and led the team with 53 receptions for 1,087 yards and 10 touchdowns, earning Second Team All-Big 12 honors. Washington again led the team in receiving as a junior with 71 catches for 1,380 yards and 10 touchdowns, earning First Team All-Big 12 honors.

He bypassed the NFL because he wanted to be the first in his family to earn his college degree, returning for his senior year and setting career-highs in every receiving category. Washington earned the 2017 Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top wide receiver.


 Analysis

  STRENGTHS
Fantastic finishing skills. Strong hands, wrists and forearms to pluck and win in contested situations – no movement by the ball once it hits his hands. Consistently catches outside his frame. Above average hand-eye coordination and tracking skills to adjust to the ball in flight. Straight-line speed to get behind the defense, averaging 19.7 yards per catch in his career.

Composed along the sideline and has mastered the vertical pattern. Physically strapped together with a thick trunk and strong limbs. Leaping skills to highpoint and secure. Looks like a running back after the catch, running physical and using a powerful stiff arm to bounce off tackle attempts. Reserved, unassuming personality with an instilled work ethic from his parents – considers his mom and dad his two biggest role models. Two-year team captain. Elite production with more receiving yards the last three seasons than any other college player over that time. Didn’t miss a game the last four seasons. – Dane Brugler 12/12/2017

WEAKNESSES
Rudimentary route runner. Tends to drift into his breaks instead of squaring in/out breaking patterns. Needs to sharpen his releases and stem footwork. Undeveloped route tempo and needs to better use various gears to set up defensive backs.
Untested vs. press coverage and lacks jam experience. Only average height and length for the position. Durable career, but missed most of the second half of the Bedlam game due to an ankle injury (Nov. 2017). Offensive system at Oklahoma State helped inflate his production. Minimal special teams experience and wasn’t used as a regular return man. – Dane Brugler 12/12/17

IN OUR VIEW: Although he needs to develop better nuance as a route runner and NFL press coverage will be a new challenge, Washington has the football character and ball skills to contribute early in his NFL career with the ceiling of a solid No. 2 receiving option.

 Draft Scout Player News
01/27/18 - Top 15 Senior Bowl Performers: 6. James Washington, WR, Oklahoma State...Washington was one of the prospects with the most to gain this week, and Oklahoma State's all-time leading receiver didn't disappoint. Despite measuring a hair under 5-foot-11, his 210-pound frame and 34-inch arms were positive numbers. And during individual drills, Washington showed improved releases and route-running to create separation with more than just speed. With all the talented wideouts in Mobile, Washington stood above the rest. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/23/18 - Senior Bowl Tuesday: NFL scouts' eyes will be glued to the releases and route-running of Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington (5-11, 210) this week. And on Day One of practice, the Cowboys' all-time leading receiver did a nice job using his physical nature and strength to work through press coverage and enter his route. Washington's best trait (his strong hands) were also on display, making several contested catches during one-on-ones. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/19/17 - 2017 ALL-BIG 12 FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): WR James Washington, Oklahoma State Sr. Stamford, Texas/Stamford,...Washington was also the recipient of the 2017 Biletnikoff Award presented to the nation's top receiver. He will go down as one of the best and most productive receivers in Oklahoma State history and in the history of the Big 12 Conference. He finished the regular season with 69 catches for 1,423 yards and 12 touchdowns. Washington's 1,423 receiving yards and 118.6 receiving yards per game both led the FBS and his 12 touchdown receptions ranked fourth nationally. He led all FBS players with 17 catches of 30 yards or longer, 10 catches of 40 yards or longer and seven catches of 50 yards or longer. - Oklahoma State Football
12/07/17 - 2017 FRED BILETNIKOFF AWARD WINNER: James Washington, Oklahoma State,...Oklahoma State's James Washington is the 2017 recipient of the Biletnikoff Award presented to the nation's top receiver, it was announced tonight at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show in Atlanta. It was also announced at the event that Washington is a first team selection to the 2017 Walter Camp All-America Team. 2017 marks the third season that the Biletnikoff Award has been won by a player from Oklahoma State, as Justin Blackmon won the award in 2010 and again in 2011. OSU is the only school in the country with three Biletnikoff Awards to its credit.

Washington will go down as one of the best and most productive receivers in Oklahoma State history and in the history of the Big 12 Conference. He enters the bowl game with 4,346 career receiving yards, a figure that leads all active FBS players and ranks third in Big 12 history. He needs 68 yards to pass Rashaun Woods for the Oklahoma State school record and to move into second on the all-time Big 12 list. He leads all active FBS players with 38 career receiving touchdowns and his career average of 85.2 receiving yards per game is the best among all receivers from Power Five conferences with a minimum of 2,000 career receiving yards. - Oklahoma State Football

10/28/17 - Mason Rudolph tossed three touchdowns, backup J.D. King ran for 113 yards, and No. 11 Oklahoma State's ballhawking defense forced five turnovers in a 50-39 win over No. 22 West Virginia on a rainy Saturday. The Cowboys (7-1, 3-1 Big 12) remained in the thick of the conference race by beating the Mountaineers (5-3, 2-2) for the third straight season. Oklahoma State frustrated FBS touchdown-pass leader Will Grier into four interceptions, one fewer than the West Virginia quarterback's season total. Grier finished 20 of 42 for 285 yards. His counterpart Rudolph completed 20 of 34 passes for a season-low 216 yards but mixed in two scoring throws to James Washington and another to King, whose 41 touches in relief helped OSU keep humming. Rudolph also had a 1-yard touchdown in the first half to put the Cowboys up 13-0. Oklahoma State lost Big 12 leading rusher Justice Hill to an apparent arm injury on the game's second play when he fumbled on a crunching hit by Xavier Preston and Kyzir White. Hill did not return until the fourth quarter when his 5-yard touchdown run made it 37-24 on a drive extended by a third-and-11 pass interference flag. Hill tacked on an 18-yard score to make it a 19-point cushion with 3:47 left. The Cowboys, tops in the nation in total offensive yards, outrushed the Mountaineers 246-62. - The Sports Xchange
