Eagles Draft Picks 2012: OL Brandon Washington Selected 200th Overall

The Eagles have added another big body to their offensive line with 6-3, 320lb OL Nate Washington from Miami. Washington started every game at left tackle for the Hurricanes over the last two seasons but likely projects to guard in the NFL.

A quick look at his strengths from NFL.com should give you a pretty good idea what the Eagles and Howard Mudd liked about him.

Washington is a big man who carries a lot of weight in his upper body. He excels as a down blocker on run plays and is comfortable working within a zone scheme to pass off and pick up stunting defensive linemen. He has very good feet for his size, which he showcases when working upfield as a puller. He is an explosive hitter who can uncoil on his man and generate a lot of movement. Washington looks as if he shoots out of his stance at times into his man and would have no problems playing in an up-tempo, no-huddle offense.

Played in a zone scheme, athletic and likes to pull... This is exactly what Mudd's scheme calls for. So as depth goes, Washington seems to be a very good fit.
