Jaguars Sign only Offensive Draft Pick RB Washington


The Jaguars today signed their only draft pick on the offensive side of the ball from April’s draft, as they came to terms with seventh-round running back Chauncey Washington. With only five picks in April’s draft, he’s the first to sign. At USC he started 14 games and finished with 1,778 yards and 19 touchdowns. Here is part of his Bio from USC’s website:

The hard-charging Washington, who led USC in rushing in 2006 and 2007, started at tailback as a senior in 2007. Overall in 2007 while appearing in 12 games (he sat out the Idaho opener after spraining his right shoulder in 2007 fall camp) and starting the last 10 regular-season games, he ran for 969 yards on 195 carries (5.0 avg.) with 10 touchdowns and caught 7 passes for 59 yards (8.4 avg.) with 2 TD. He made 2007 All-Pac-10 honorable mention, All-Pac-10 second team and Phil Steele’s All-Pac-10 third team. He was a Senior Bowl invitee.

He had 43 yards on 12 rushes (with a pair of 1-yard TDs) at Nebraska, then had a game-high 84 yards on 11 carries (with a 7-yard TD) against Washington State. He had 106 yards (including a career-long 53-yard run) on 21 carries with a 2-yard scoring run at Washington, a game-best 75 yards on 23 carries (with a 1-yard TD) against Stanford, 54 yards on 17 carries (with an 18-yard TD) against Arizona and 64 yards on 12 carries and caught a 5-yard pass at Notre Dame. He ran for 42 yards on 11 carries at Oregon, then had a game-best 60 yards on 12 carries (with a 1-yard TD) and also caught 2 passes for 31 yards (with a nice 26-yard catch-and-run TD) against Oregon State. He then ran for a career-best 220 yards (on 29 carries), including 64 on a game-winning 96-yard scoring drive in the fourth quarter, at California (it was the most rushing yards by a Trojan since Reggie Bush had 260 versus UCLA in 2005 and was Washington’s fourth career 100-yard outing, surpassing his previous high by 101 yards) and he jetted for a 36-yard TD to earn Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Week honors. He ran for a game-best 80 yards on 22 carries and caught an 11-yard pass at Arizona State, then had 66 yards on 13 attempts (with a 10-yard TD) against UCLA. He had 75 yards on 12 carries (with a 3-yard TD run) and caught 3 passes for 12 yards (with an 8-yard TD catch) at Illinois.
