Know Your 2013 NFL Draft Picks: Cornelius Washington Is a Natural Leader

BR StudiosFeatured Columnist IVNovember 1, 2016

When you talk Georgia linebackers, the first two names usually mentioned are Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree

However, outside linebacker Cornelius Washington looks to have a big impact on his NFL team, especially in the 3-4 scheme.

We caught up with the outspoken linebacker in Gulf Breeze, Florida at Athletes' Performance.  

Washington blew away NFL brass by running a 4.55 in the 40 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

At 6'4" and 265 pounds, the Georgia linebacker is never one to mince words. Sometimes it gets him in trouble. Other times, his words motivate his teammates. 

He's noted for his pregame speeches prior to every Georgia Bulldogs game. You can't argue with the results, as Georgia went 12-2 in 2012. 

Now it's time for Cornelius Washington to show his leadership and linebacking skills in the NFL.

Check out the video above as Washington, in his own words, tells us what type of leader and linebacker he is.

Let us know in the comments below if you think Washington will shine in the NFL.  

Where will Cornelius Washington go in the 2013 NFL draft?
