James Washington followed Dez Bryant’s cleat prints as a standout wide receiver at Oklahoma State, where Bryant also starred.
If Washington has his way, he’ll remain on that path into the NFL as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, who suddenly have a need at his position after parting ways with Bryant Friday.
‘I’ve watched a bunch of him on film at Oklahoma State and I just tried to mold my game after him‘
“Teams, they have asked me who I compare my game to,” Washington told Bruce Murray and Mark Dominick on the SiriusXM Blitz. “And, for me, I feel like it’s Dez Bryant and that just comes because I’ve watched a bunch of him on film at Oklahoma State and I just tried to mold my game after him. I watched him a lot growing up and I just like the characteristics that he brings to the table.”
Washington is aware that multiple teams could have interest in drafting him. His preference would be the one near his hometown of Abilene, Texas.
‘(Dallas is) three hours from my hometown and I’ve watched them and I’ve studied them’
“I’ve heard a bunch of places I could go, but if it was one place that I could choose I would say Dallas,” he said. “It’s because it’s three hours from my hometown and I’ve watched them and I’ve studied them, so it’s perfect a fit, I feel like. Wherever I go, I’m going to give that team a hundred-and-ten-percent effort no matter where I’m at or what it is they ask me to do.”
