Comparing Haason Reddick And Daryl Washington

Posted Jul 28, 2017

Linebacker Haason Reddick has been compared to ex-Cardinal Daryl Washington. Here is how the rookie stacks up to the former Pro Bowler, based off their posted measurables from the pre-draft process.

Coach Bruce Arians has not been shy to heap praise on rookie linebacker Haason Reddick in training camp.

Earlier this week, Arians said Reddick is probably the best coverage linebacker the Cardinals have had during his tenure, a high compliment considering Daryl Washington preceded him and his fellow inside linebackers – Deone Bucannon and Karlos Dansby – are quite good at it themselves.

The D-Wash comparison continues to come up, and Darren detailed their similarities in today’s feature story on the homepage.

As for Arians’ optimism about Reddick, it’s easy to see why. Here is how he compares athletically to Washington, a former Pro Bowler, based off their posted measurables from the pre-draft process. (Reddick’s numbers are from the NFL Scouting combine. Washington’s are from the combine and his pro day. He also ran a 4.66 40-yard dash, but I took his fastest recorded time.)

  • Squashing The Turnover Bug

    Posted Sep 20, 2017

    It’s no secret the Cardinals’ offense has been poor this season, and with the injuries to running back David Johnson and wide receiver John Brown, it could be a slog for the foreseeable future. There is one simple way to improve quickly: slow the turnovers.

  • Cardinals Come Back From The Brink

    Posted Sep 18, 2017

    As the minutes ticked away in the fourth quarter on Sunday, it was clear the Cardinals were perilously close to an 0-2 start to the season. But just how improbable was their comeback victory over the Colts?

  • In Defense Of Justin Bethel

    Posted Sep 14, 2017

    The Cardinals cornerback allowed six completions for 103 yards with the two touchdowns and interception (not counting his pass breakup on a two-point conversion). That’s a quarterback rating of 88.2, which is average, but still better than the 114.4 rating allowed by the Cardinals on the rest of Stafford’s throws. It was a decent day, and it could have been a great one.

  • A Good Start For Haason Reddick

    Posted Sep 13, 2017

    The Cardinals clearly planned to bring Haason Reddick along slowly in his NFL debut on Sunday, rotating their first-round pick with Josh Bynes at inside linebacker. It didn’t take long for Reddick to prove he was ready for the grand stage. The talented youngster avoided the mental errors that plagued him in the preseason and consistently showed well against the run and in coverage.

  • Carson Palmer Has Company

    Posted Sep 11, 2017

    There is no way to sugarcoat it: Carson Palmer got off to an awful start to the season in Detroit on Sunday. While it was an ugly showing, Palmer had plenty of company across the NFL in Week 1, as myriad established quarterbacks started the season slowly.
