According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Rams have recently met with Broderick Washington, a stout defensive tackle from Texas Tech.
Life is all about taking advantage of opportunities and @TexasTechFB DT Broderick Washington did just that at @seniorbowl after being added as Javon Kinlaw’s injury replacement. Arrived on Wednesday ready to compete. He’s jumped multiple rounds, into early Day 3, on many boards. pic.twitter.com/oWDMrLmyCt— Jim Nagy (@JimNagy_SB) March 26, 2020
Washington was a four-year contributor for the Red Raiders defense and started the final 37 games of his career in Lubbock. As a sophomore in 2017, Washington totaled a career-high 44 tackles and a pair of sacks. In 2018, he had 41 total stops, seven tackles-for-loss, and three sacks. In his final year, Washington tallied 39 tackles, 5.5 tackles-for-loss, 2.5 sacks, and two pass deflections. Due to South Carolina’s Javon Kinlaw pulling out of the Senior Bowl, Washington was a late call-up and made the most of his time in Mobile.
At 6’2 and 305 pounds, Washington is a stout and strong run defender that plays with a ton of grit. He pops offensive lineman off the line of scrimmage and makes it very hard on guards and centers to continuously take him on over and over again.
Washington is probably coming off the board on day three and would immediately add to the interior rotation for an NFL club’s defensive line.
