Draft Scout Cornelius Washington News
08/27/13 - DE Cornelius Washington had a game against Oakland that every late-round draft pick needs if they intend to make the team. The D-end had a sack, tackle for loss and pass deflection, as well as a QB hurry.
"He did some good things," defensive coordinator Mel Tucker said. "He was in the backfield at the end. He ran well. He got some pressure on the quarterback. He did a nice job reading a screen. He did a good job in the run game on a couple plays. So there were some bright spots for him in that last outing."
The former Georgia player had often been called a workout wonder and member of the all-physique team, but he hadn't shown much beyond potential until the preseason game.
He had been fighting with Kyle Moore at backup D-end, and after the Oakland game the Bears cut Moore. So it would appear Washington's stock is rising in coaches' eyes.
08/07/13 - DE Cornelius Washington suffered an elbow strain Aug. 3 and is day to day.
04/28/13 - A closer look at the Bears' picks: Round 6/188 - Cornelius Washington, DE, 6-4, 265, Georgia...Could be a huge bargain if he plays up to his potential, which he has done only in short bursts in the past. Seems to be better suited as a 3-4 outside linebacker, but will be a defensive end in the Bears' 4-3. Country strong, powerful and explosive. Ran a 4.56 40, had a 39-inch vertical at the Combine and bench-pressed 225 pounds 36 times. Has maxed 500 on the bench. Lacks instincts and doesn't play as well as he works out; had just 10.5 career sacks. Takes downs off, and competitiveness and coachability have been questioned. Can win with physical play as a run defender and pass rusher. - The Sports Xchange
03/28/13 - 2013 Georgia Pro Day: Representatives from all 32 NFL teams gathered at Georgia’s pro day on Thursday for a workout held outdoors on FieldTurf in approximately 40-degree temperatures. Cornelius Washington, LB (6-4, 263) - Washington ran really well at the combine (officially 4.55 seconds in the 40, which placed him among the top performers in his position group), so he only did the short shuttle (4.75 seconds) and three-cone drill (7.48 seconds) at Georgia’s pro day. Washington worked out at linebacker, and the scouts on hand also wanted to see him work out as a defensive lineman with his hand in the ground. However, a pulled hamstring prevented Washington from doing so. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/24/13 - 2013 Georgia Pro Day: Pass rusher Cornelius Washington decided to stand on his numbers from the combine, which wasn't a surprise after he tested better than expected in Indianapolis. Safety Shawn Williams and wide receiver Tavarres King also decided to rest on their combine results. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
