Notes from Billy's breakdown

  • Shaan Washington’s quiet success last season is encouraging.  I don’t think that he has been a playmaker just yet but his numbers from last year coupled with his size tell you all you need to know about what he has the potential to be.

  • Looking at Shaan Washington he is a very intelligent young man who is almost 240 pounds now.  When he walks into the room you immediately associate him with being an SEC or an NFL linebacker. 
  • He is a senior now; he is physically better than he has ever been.  He has played so much football, more than you would think.  Adding experience to physical development should produce a senior year that is far and away his best season.

  • Shaan Washington should be a solid player for the defense this season and has a lot of potential to be a very good linebacker.

  • I fully expect Shaan Washington to have a good solid year where he will be dependable and play well which will help this defense overall.  I think he can certainly be the most improved player on the defense this season.

Notes from Olin's breakdown

  • Every time Kevin Sumlin has spoken this offseason he has mentioned how big Shaan Washington has gotten which is very promising.

  • If Washington is continuing to improve, his increased size will be a necessary tool for success in the SEC.  He does not have to be an all-conference linebacker for the Aggies.  He simply needs to be a sound linebacker that can step into a hole as well as chase somebody down.

  • His size should help him bring down players at contact instead of yielding yards after contact.

  • We should be encouraged about Shaan Washington also because this is his second year under John Chavis.  He is going to be surrounded with more solid players.  It could be a big year for him.
