No. 125: Traded to Oakland Raiders for CB Fabian Washington.  Scouting Report on Washington from ESPN Insiders…
Washington has adequate size for the position to go along with excellent speed, quickness and agility. He has very quick feet when backpedaling and does a very good job of keeping his chin over his toes and his weight evenly distributed. He can be a little choppy in his pedal but still manages to extend the cushion well. He can plant and drive on the ball with top quickness and is unrestricted in his transition. He has a good burst to close on the ball and has the hand-eye coordination to make plays on the ball. He is still a bit raw on route recognition when in man off or zone but has enough explosive quickness to recover and maintain relationship. He has good leaping ability to challenge taller receivers to the ball. He is not timid about coming up to force the ball in run support but is not a strong tackler, although he will get the job done in that area. Washington has a chance to be a shutdown corner with more experience and work.
