Grading Washington’s 2021 draft class at season’s end
By Jerry Trotta
The rest of the 2021 class
Darrick Forrest: Played just 26 defensive snaps, but was a regular contributor on Washington’s special teams unit.
Camaron Cheeseman: A fan favorite, Cheeseman stepped into the team’s premier long-snapper role and killed it. While the kicking game struggled early on, the Michigan product was steady throughout the season.
William Bradley-King: Bradley-King notched a split-sack with Jonathan Allen in Week 18 vs the Giants. He was only activated for three games, but he brings instant energy and you always knew when he was on the field.
Shaka Toney: Call us crazy, but Washington might have found something in Toney, whom they drafted in the seventh-round.
Over 77 pass-rush snaps, the Penn State product posted six pressures, 1.5 sacks, three hurries, and two run stops. With a strong offseason, he could play his way into the rotation as a sophomore.
Dax Milne: It says a lot that Milne (nine catches for 83 yards) almost outproduced Brown despite being drafted four rounds after the former Tar Heel. That’s not terrible production from your last pick of the draft.
Milne might never be a starter for the WFT, but he has a place on the bottom of the depth chart or practice squad.
